Great fight, very happy that the decision went to the right guy, although he was very justifiably handed a point penalty for low blows. You could tell he didn’t do it on purpose, but still.
Great sportsmanship from Velez at the end of the fight helping Rios putting the belt on. This guy will be back. Two winners in such a fight, 4 stars in my view.
fantastic sportsmanship. they will grow form this. velez showed serious class.
