M-1 Global "Selection" Postscript

Despite the small venue - a ballroom in Bally's - it was definitely a high-caliber (i.e., organized and well-funded) international show, and guys like Mike Geurin, Plinio Cruz, Zach Makovsky and Dennis Bermudez made the most of the spotlight.  George Sheppard didn't really "defeat" Mervin Rodriquez as much as just hold him in a corner, and John Salgado's decision win has to be considered an early Christmas present for him (he did fight hard and entertain, though).  Over all, it was a strong event, and props to matchmaker Fran Evans for putting together some worthwhile talent.
