In most of the first half, Perrella's boxing ability and accurate punching was giving Ramos a lot of trouble. Ramos tried to rally in the fifth, as he closed the gap and began to outworking Perrella, who came right back in the sixth with the better boxing.

Ref isn't supposed to give a fighter the benefit of the doubt cause of the time or round. Good call, bad luck for perella

BS stop, but Perrella can't be getting up so much and giving the ref a chance to get involved. Beating the odds is good for the house, anytime a long shot gets close, they'll give it to him.
