Full of action and a pretty good fight involving two warriors that never stopped throwing punches. The fight was very close since Rosales never took advantage of his longer reach offering Higa the opportunity to have a short distance fight during the whole bout. The strength of Rosales finally prevailed. 3 stars minimum.
Great fight, total war from rounds 4 to 9. Both were taking very hard body shots. I guess Higa’s corner stopped the bout since he had gassed out.
Great fight !
Rosales has all the atributes of an outstanding boxer. He can fight from the outside or the inside. He really cranked it up in the later rounds much to the disappointment of the Japanese commentators.
Great fight worth four stars in my opnion. Higa was clearly outclassed after the later half of the first round.
