At times it was as if Whitaker was having a conversation between rounds with Benton, although he was usually all ears and no mouth. Benton, head through the ropes, always calm and clear with his gameplan plan for the next round, while Whitaker's facial expressions showing a fighter ready and willing for the task ahead.
Excellent clarification Robbi, very well explained. Thanks!
