A guy like this might have an ugly style but deserves his chance to shine. Rios was the one engaging in half of those clinches due to fatigue anyway. He was given a chance vs Rios nd was robbed blindly of it and no justice was done about it.

the lundy fight was pretty close as well. the issue was an outlying scorecard, which had lundy winning almost every round. abril dropped lundy as well. it was more of a flash knockdown (and frankly, who hasn't dropped lundy,) but it was not a slip. they both looked like very good boxers. abril was controlling things more with his height and lundy was the harder puncher.
not sure if the entire thing is filmed. i've seen a few rounds on youtube kicking around. it was at a club and the place was dark.


along the lines that one judge was so clearly favoring lundy (and the other two were split and very close,) it can be considered a robbery.
