It’s too bad that Anselmo isn’t the hardest hitter and that Yamanaka has a superb chin.
Still, it’s one of the most exciting boxing fights this year.
Yeah he is definitely the better skilled fighter. Yamanaka has awful defense but a great chin and hits hard. This match really reminded me of the old school boxer vs puncher wars.
Maan…Anselmo used to be so slick defensively. He got crushed in this bout. Yamanaka is pretty solid… nice jab, balance, straight left to the body…. Nothing crazy. Just seemed to be the stronger of the two.
