A very technical start in the first round, with Williams being a bit sharper and accurate. Williams was very accurate in the second round, especially with his left hand. Leo was looking to get close and dig to the body to slow Williams down.

Leo stepped things up in the third, when he was getting close enough to land to the body. Leo continued to rally with his inside work in the fourth. During the fifth, it was close with both fighting on the inside and the same continued in the sixth.

The inside fighting was still being engaged in the seventh, Leo having the edge with his body work. Leo continued to have success with the inside fighting in the eight. Williams was having trouble keeping Leo off of him when they got in close. Leo continued to do his inside work in the ninth.

I was hoping Williams would win

Williams reminds me of Farmer. Decent technical skills but simply lacks the physical strength and power to keep guys off, therefore will always likely fall short at the higher levels.

And the USA has another world champion. Well done to this young man and the PBC
