Sammy Di Pace performance

I was at the Top Rank and Juan Romero promoted boxing show on Friday night in Rio Rancho at the Santa Ana Star Center.

Las Cruces bantamweight Sammy Di Pace improved to 5-0 in his young and bright career. The 18-year-decisionied Alvaro Muro, winning all four rounds deciseively.

Di Pace has improved tremendoulsy on defense in his past two fights and that is a key. He has a good offensive game plan, but defense had been one area that needed work and he's put the time in.

If he can continue to be a good defensive fighter, the expectation that he can be a world champion could develop.

There was no immediate word after the fight when he will fight again, but look for a bout sometime in the first couple of months of 2009.
