  1. explosive finish vs a difficult style mentally. pressure figures affect you not only physically but mental stress.

  2. Not sure bout the stoppage specially a fighter of gradovichs caliber but better sooner than stopping it too late btw my god valdez has taken on a new levels in terms of maturity, want to see him vs selby or stay at home uchiyama i think he should fight miura next to sense a measure against a banger since the Russian here wasn’t a ko artist just a good pressure fighter

  3. Very nice fight with two qualified opponents. Evgeny, a good boxer, was the fulltime aggressor as usual but unfortunately because his lack of power and a very elusive target he was not able to do much in this fight. Valdez moves in the ring show master perfection changing angles quite often and connecting very good punches and combinations at the same time he was doing that. He was technically superior and in addition to, he has evidently a lot of punching power. Valdez is a very good prospect to be follow up.
    In my opinion the stoppage was right since it seems that Evgeny’s nose was broken. Anyhow, I do not believe that Evgeny has any chance to beat Valdez if the fight continuing.
