Review: 2014-08-16, nice and close fight between Yoan Pablo Hernandez and Firat Arslan: it gets three stars. Yoan Pablo Hernandez entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 28-1-0 (14 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.1 cruiserweight in the world, he fought just once in 2013 beating Alexander Alekseev and defending his Ibf belt (=Hernandez vs Alekseev).
