Earlier in the evening, Ryan Garcia (19-0, 16 KOs) brought the early fireworks and maintained his perfect record with a spectacular knockout of Romero Duno (21-2, 16 KOs) in Round 1. S

eniesa Estrada (18-0, 7 KOs) ultimately won the highly-anticipated clash against Marlen Esparza (7-1, 1 KO) by technical decision after an accidental headbutt in Round 5 led to a nasty gash on Esparza’s forehead that ultimately halted the fight at the end of Round 9.

Lol a lot of the pics of Kovalev landing, Canelo's skin is moved from being touched, but there's no sweat flying because there's no impact. Kovalev pulled his punches all night. IMO fixed fight.

This fight played out exactly as De La Hoya paid for it to be. No surprise. Kovalev on his way out, taking a big payday under the table to keep all of you morons hyped about his juiced up cash…

Comment by j.razor on 11-04-2019

[QUOTE=lopetego;20166172]Kovalev was winning at least until he got brutally iced by ginger that was a scary looking KO he looked concussed right there, his arm trying to jab by itself after getting KO'd I hope Kova didnt get brain damage…
