I had it 7-5 Ramirez. Watched the Russian broadcast too, then the ESPN version. It was close. Swing round fight. Postol seemed to laxed to really want it let’s be honest, especially when the Champion is dictating the pace

[QUOTE=petero;20735339]That fight was a draw. Arum made sure the judges kept the Taylor fight alive. Taylor fought Postal in only his 13th fight and dropped him. I believe Taylor is gonna beat Ramirez by k.o.[/QUOTE] i had Postol winning clearly…
