cintron is coming in much heavier than angulo. advantage in size to cintron over angulo, or a sign cintron is out of shape and will be sluggish again?

The Franchise said...

Not sluggish so far tonight!

uatu said...

cintron is looking extremely good. all kinds of movement, mixing up different punches.

uatu said...

I've said it a million times and I will say it again, I really don't think that Lennox is a bad commentator. He is sometimes a little choppy, but I think he is making good points today.

kermit faded just a little down the stretch. a bit of the bicycle in round 12.

uatu said...

well done. congrats to kermit.

The Franchise said...

Yeah he really showed something. And it's not like this ruined Angulo or anything, as he's still young.

uatu said...
