Then he must have noticed he was going over the top and started to balance things out by making out Kalambay was coming on like a freight train which wasn't really true to that extent either.
Not an easy fight to call live, to be fair, these kind of fights never are.Best rewatched with some of the old Ludwig Van on instead, or something like that
I must admit I did indeed see it as two halves, very much so. Not quite the way the first Colin Jones - Milt McCrory fight was, but........
