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.

I agree. I saw this fight a few days after it actually took place. Man, what a war! Boxing is truly an art form. Simply beautiful!!! Honestly, what made the fight so thrilling is the fact I had not seen or heard of either fighter before this point. Again, what a boxing treat.
