Photo: Omar Figueroa, Nihito Arakawa - The Scars of War

Lightweights Omar Figueroa and Nihito Arakawa had the scars of battle after their tremendous twelve round war on Saturday night in San Antonio. Figueroa won a twelve round decision, but it was far from easy with Arakawa taking punishment all fight long and continued to come forward with punches of his own. Arakawa threw 1170 punches in the fight, and Figueroa unloaded 960 of his own. The two fighters went to hospital after the match and there was plenty of respect as they took a photo side by side.
