“He was a tough fighter,” Leo said. “I’d give my performance an eight. He had a punch. I had to stay cautious in the beginning and take my time and get on the inside.”

“He kept smirking at me when we first started so I wanted to wipe that smirk off his face real quick,” Martinez said. “So it went from him smirking to him getting serious really fast. I was looking to get the knockout, but in my head I was thinking if it doesn’t happen, just keep working him. But I didn’t have to. I took him out on the third.”
