Hard to not to see Nino giving Rocky some early round trouble, and
possible shaking Rocky on several occassions.
Could see Rocky have some problems with a swollen left eye, from
several hard punches from Nino.
The bout will be 'Even' after 7-Rounds.
But, by Round 8, the body punches from Rocky would break the big Cuban down, as Nino did have some stamina issues.
Nino becomes a 'stiff tree' in Round 9, and gets his ribs crushed, and barely escapes Rocky's clubbing fists.
But, Rocky lands a 'Suzie Q' early in Round 10, to score a 'knockkout'.
