    A full of action fight with an interchange of number of punches from both boxers well above the average for this category. Technically was a little bit poor. Abnes was more accurate which allow him to take the lead but was grabbing Cuellar far too much during the whole fight.
    The knock down called in round 11th was not clear to me since when Abner applied the punch, mainly looks like a push, Cuellar was angled backward so it forced him to go the canvas.

    • a punch is a pushing of the fist.. how was that not a Knock down?? It’s no different than the Flash Knock Down Mikey Garcia (who was sitting ring side) received from Rocky Martinez in the early rounds of their fight. Mares catches cuellar off balance and bam lands one.

        eltrespies: Sorry but I disagree with your punch’s description. A punch is really a strike with the fist. So strike and push are not synonymous. However, I watched the fight again and I’m now pretty sure that it was a wrong call from the referee since the right glove hit the Cuellar’s right shoulder forcing him to fall down (like being pushed) due to Cuellar was leaning slightly backward when received the impact.

    Farhoods scorecard was pathetic
