  1. Throw these East Euro’s to the top of the MW pile.
    Mendez took too much punishment, his corner and ref got it wrong.
    When a fighters too tough for his own good he deserves protection.

    1. Agree completely. This one was over rounds earlier, and only punishment for the absorbent journeyman let it drag on. Hard to say much about Khytrov against such competition, but he’s promising — puts together combos, moves Loma-like to the side, and keeps coming.
