Nieky just couldnt pull the trigger and he had many opportunities. No leg kicks, body shots, boxing combos … compare this nieky to the one who fought valtellini and was tearing the divisions a*s apart …. he also seemed very gaunt and drained from the weight cut. the question is is it father time or is his head only in boxing full time now and he just came over for a payday?
Very nice fight between a bulldog (this time without teeth) against an extremely skilled adversary. Nieky in spite of being a very good and focused fighter has not chances at all to win this bout. The only one referee that saw him winning the whole bout is totally biased, useless and should be disqualified for good.
