Saul Alvarez Beats Lovemore

Saul Alvarez Beats Lovemore - It wasn't the biggest Saturday of the season -- in fact, it's the lightest Saturday since October -- but it was busy and eventful, too. We saw a Fight of the Year candidate on the Top Rank PPV, and plenty of notable fighters including Saul Alvarez, Daniel Ponce de Leon, and Ricky Burns were in action. Here's a look around the world.

Alvarez (35-0-1, 26 KO) won this one going away on scores of 119-109 and 120-108 (twice). Bad Left Hook had it 118-110 for Alvarez. This means that N'dou (48-12-2, 31 KO) has still never been stopped in his career, which was a real risk coming all the way up to this 150-pound catchweight against Alvarez. N'dou looked sturdy at the weight and strong, but Alvarez was just too good for him. N'dou didn't really seem to be there to win, quite frankly, but to survive and say he didn't get knocked out, both of which he accomplished.

Realistically Alvarez probably didn't gain any new fans with this one. It wasn't the sort of performance he's become known for, but not every win is a stunner, and this one was just a solid win to close out 2010. He's making a measured, step-by-step climb against veteran fighters right now, and he really took no punishment in this fight, either. He was never at any risk, never in danger, and he tried to land big shots, but N'dou was good enough defensively to mostly avoid those.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
