  1. What an awesome fight. Both guys were still throwing bombs late into the fight. I get it; you’re boy lost a close decision. The boos from the crowd after such an awesome display of back-and-forth actions are still unwarranted.

    1. Very true, after a fight like that how can’t there be nothing but admiration for the two fighters. I was completely surprised to hear those boos

  2. Smartest thing Costa did was press early & attack that body. Yoel is 42. It’s bound to wear him down.
