  • The Kid was robbed.He won by 2pts.Kid held on inside and was more accurate.Good tactics smothering Warringtons style.Warringtons corner very relieved with result.The least would be a draw.Kids stock very high after this performance.

  • Yup, not a nice fight to watch but The Kid did a great job at Neutralizing Warrington’s Offence,i would like to see the numbers on this one, the amount of punches thrown and missed by Warringtons was a pain to watch, The Kid threw less but was way more effective, he deserved at least a draw in that ugly fight. I noticed Warrington’s punches are way too mechanical and he lacks slickness, once he crosses over on the other side of the pond and faces a better oponent, one that moves well, has power and can put a few combinations together that belt will be gone from his waist.

  • 115-113 JW. Galahad should have had points off for holding. I actually counted more holding than Akinwande vs Lewis and Akinwande was disqualified. Galahad wasnt throwing enough leather and only has himself to blame.

  • Ugly fight. Galahad can only blame himself for the loss. He neutralized Warren’s offense through holding but did not provide enough of his own.
