Good point.

I did research on Farenas before the fight. I knew going in that he was a decent fighter with good skills and power. He's just slow. And, let's face it, everybody looks slow versus Gamboa. That said, I expected Yuri to end the fight pretty much how and when he wanted, even with the ring rust.

Gamboa gassed very early, so that probably saved Farenas from a knockout. But Michael impressed me with his toughness and determination. He was there to win, not be an opponent. With everything considered, it's no surprise Yuri didn't win by KO.
