MANFREDO MANHANDLES SPINA



It wasn't even close... The cream rises to the top...Peter Manfredo Jr. took apart the bigger but less skilled Joey Spina. The bout was stopped in the third round after a game but outclassed Spina got up from a knockdown but took a vicious right hand that prompted the towel to come in from his corner. A wise stoppage. Poor Joey was in way over his head.

With Joe Calzaghe winning tonight and also Mikkel Kessler's impressive KO of Markus Beyer...Well a big opportunity is knocking. How good is Manfredo ? That remains to be seen but he sure is marketable. There is even talk of Manfredo - Roy Jones Jr. Hey, why not ? Manfredo is streaking and Jones is hanging on. It's a fight that would draw a lot of fan interest. Hell, my cheap ass might even pay for that one.

I met Manfredo in Sacramento at Moras last fight on ESPN, he seemed cool. I never really cared much for him but he seems to be getting better evrey fight. I asked him then about the Jones fight but he didnt say much.

I think adding Roach as his trainer really helped. I would like to see him fighta top 10 guy 1st before he fights a Jones or 1 of the champs. The problems is alot of the name fighters at 168 are over seas. Besides Lacy there are not many name oponents for him. He could maybe fight one of the guys that where in the shobox tourny they just had.
