We'll admit we like Guevara, a lot, and he may well be the best Light Flyweight on the planet right now. Sadly however we don't like mismatches and this seemed like a mismatch from the day it was announced. When it was set Claveras wasn't ranked by the WBC, who put him in just before the fight, and as a result several better fighters were over-looked.
With his first defence out of the way it now seems likely Guevara will have to face more testing foes. Hopefully they'll come soon. The division is a really exciting one, with the likes of Jonathan Taconing and Paipharob Kokietgym waiting in the wings. Hopefully someone of that ilk gets a shot before another untested, though promising and heavy handed, fighter like Claveras. As for the Filipino we hope to see him rebuilding, developing his skills and coming again somewhere down the line. This however was far too early and his team need to ask themselves why they felt he was capable of upsetting a brilliant young Mexican.
