He dominated a can (much more than a can if you listen to Enzo Calzaghi a few years ago) and it happened to have a tough enough chin and determination to last 10 rounds.Maternak was absolutely dominant and showcased his superior skills to a Danish audience. The combos, the variety of punches, the speed were all there. What else do you want denier?
Just put a cork in it already. I like
Masternak. Fact is, he didn't show a lot of urgency and probably could have gotten rid of Miles...tough and determined or not.
You don't need to oversell the performance. It is OK to acknowledge that while yes he dominated and yes he threw many nice pretty combos he still didn't go all out to close the show and was in cruise control much of the time.
