Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

Wilfred Benitez vs Tony Chiaverini

A clinic on how to fight off the ropes. The commentary team felt Chiaverini was doing well early on, but he was pretty much getting countered to death from the opening bell to the eventual stoppage. Benitez would be perfectly content to lay on the ropes and soak up all of Chiaverini's pressure. Barely anything would land of note, and then Benitez would explode with combinations, most of which would land. As the rounds passed, Benitez was landing at a higher rate and more cleanly. Chiaverini's head was snapping back with every right hand and left hook. It was a dominant performance. Outclassed. Chiaverini was pulled out after the 8th round by corner man Angelo Dundee.
