  • Wow usually I look at a fighters KO ratio and write off any chance of a KO win but this guy looked like the heavier handed fighter from the get go. Hopefully more explosive KO’s to come. Congrats

  • That was a bomb! I didn’t think he could do that. Full credit to Curiel and Ramla Ali as well, I didn’t think either would win tonight.

  • Cordina might be a bigger fraud than the money laundering treasonist from Delaware. Cordina is a phony. He needs to go home and get his shine box. Any true top level guy will level him out.

  • Vasquez won this one and if they wanted cordina to keep the fight they should least made it a draw like one of the judges had it

  • Cordina is a hyoed fighter not as good as marketed, Vasquez exposed him, Vasquez looked better on defeat than Cordina in victory, Navarrete and Foster would destroy Cordina
