Nice fight with Varga putting a quite good resistance but he wasn’t able to keep the right distance required to overcome Robin’s aggressive style. Therefore, the punching power of Robin prevailed. It is incredible that Varga’s corner and himself didn’t realize that the mouth guard wasn’t in position at the beginning of the second round (most likely was also forgotten in the first round too). A mistake that could be very costly for Varga’s teeth health.
