  1. I enjoyed it very much. Some rounds were tough to judge, but at least 5 or 6 were clean cut for De la Cruz.

  2. Till the beginning to the end it was amazing the amount of punches thrown by both contenders. Mare did right being the aggressor and trying to go for a short distance fight however he was holding too much. After a couple of rounds Cruz took full control of the fight and using his reach advantage and nice side steps dominated the fight. The judge score 114-114 was absolutly wrong.
