  1. To me that’s a 2-stars fight. No rhythm, lots of holding, so many headbutts and the referee is very annoying.
    I can see some good skills on Tabiti’s side, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. He’s weak defensively, which is surprising since he’s trained by Mayweather Sr. Often, he moves backward in straight line, he doesnt move his head much, when he throws combination, he tends to drop his hands at the end and to stay right in front of his opponent. But he’s quite fast for a cruiserweight, and it made all the difference in this fight.

  2. Very entertaining and active fight with two fighters displaying a quite different style. From one side a wild crazy bull and in the other a calculated and very calm executioner. Tabiti in spite of having less boxing experience than his rival he is very mature and by far a faster and better technical boxer than Tapia. Calmly, I did his fight controlling the action and counterpunching with intelligence till the point that obliged Tapia to fall under his game. Tabiti quite deserves the victory. Regarding Tapia, he practised a completely disorganized aggression going just for desperado attacks. Also, his frequents changes of stance produced a lot of head butts fortunately with injuries just for himself. Regarding the knock down it looks like that was a wrong call from the referee but difficult to evaluate when it occurred since the referee in my opinion did a very good job controlling the fight and the bull. In the reply the punch hit the shoulder but it looks like that missed the head. Anyhow, if this knock down never counted Tabiti still would be the clear winner.
