  1. Hurd should have let off his punches at a distance to stop Lara holding. I think that he kept it close to give the crowd their monies worth. Well worth watching. Hurd has always been one to watch, his style reminds me of Lewis.

  2. I thought Lara won enough of the early rounds and they split the mid to late rounds. Hurd got the 10 8 in rd 12 and so I thought Lara still edged him out or it could’ve been a draw. I can see why some judges thought Hurd won though. He applied heavy pressure even though he ate a lot of punches.

  3. A fight with two boxers that seems to be no part of the same category due to a so visible size difference. However, it was a very good one and quite close. Anyhow, in my opinion the results doesn’t make justice to Lara’s work who shown to be the more skillful boxer and the one connecting his punches with better accuracy. Hurd was lucky that Lara is a soft puncher, otherwise the outcome of the fight would be totally different

        1. Did you catch Munguia’s destruction tonight of Sadam Ali? He made it look easy. We know Ali doesn’t have the greatest chin, but he has sped, slickness and guts to spare. The poor man’s Amir Khan, let’s say.

          Munguia would do well to take on Hurd soon, I believe. He has more mobility and better shot selection. If he passes that test, as I think he will, Charlo will have to watch out.

    1. Lara, one of all time most underrated fighter. One of the best cuban chin I’ve ever seen. I scored this fight a draw, but in my opinion, most shots landed by Lara were significant ones, while Hurd was quite sluggish. Could be a 4 stars fight I feel.
