I disagree, Acosta was confident, showed really good skills. It seems that after his defeat against Rios he's lost his confidence, look at his last fight, he gets dropped and becomes overly tentative for the first four rounds, granted I thought he clearly won but his confidence hasn't been the same since. He seems to fall apart when he gets touched up.
