I had Abril winning but it wasn't a great performance like most think. I thought he did what he needed to do to win but it was nothing for example like what Carlos Molina did to Kirkland.
Molina held but also landed so much more combinations, turned Kirkland and really took him to school.
Abril basically stood in the philly shell, held his right hand and blocked the left hook all night long. Rios failed to lead with a nice stiff jab and continued to get frustrated with his one dimensional attack. Even though Robert Garcia was giving him the proper instructions, Rios failed to execute and got frustrated.
