  • Christopher Hills

    4 star there. Has to be.
    Both fighters in epic form.

  • Tidiane Sere

    Kalenga is physically so strong, but need to be polished. Use too much of his power shot causing him to be off balance.
    Dorticos was technically better, was able to figure out kalenga faster….The uppercut was the key and he used it a lot.
    Goog fight.

    Strange, this fight is definitely above 3 stars!

    Pretty good fight… this one deserves to be the fight of the week since most of the bouts this weekend were kinda boring in comparison.

  • tango2042

    A nice exchange of punches in a very active fight thanks to the full time aggression by the French boxer who got a very nice and incredible recovery after his knock down. No doubts that the Cuban has excellent punching power but was slow and anticipating most of his punches. This fight could has been finished much more earlier but Dorticos fully allowed Kalenda to do his fighting plan almost just going for counter punching instead proceeding with aggressive attacks.
