Page had a very powerful right hand and it was a punishing weapon when he was in shape. In this fight Coetzee took plenty of big right hands and was knocked out brutally at the end. We can blame the Page KO for Coetzee's thereafter chin troubles. It's actually a quite brutal fight. Both men take some huge artillery.
Did you happen to see Coetzee Versus Iran Barkley?! Beyond Sad. Bordering on Pathetic.
