Davilla did well early, befuddling Pintor with his quicker combos, but Lupe is a beast and when it came time to rumble he overwhelmed Davila, who by the way showed a ton of heart to stay in there and try and match terms with Lupe till the end.

I had it 145-143 for Pintor, and felt it could have maybe been a little wider in Pintor's favour. He dominated down the stretch, sweeping the last four rounds on my card to take it. At best Davila deserved a draw, there's no question in my mind he didn't do enough to win.

Rounds 2,3,5,7, and 11 for Davila.
Rounds 4,8,10,12,13,14 and 15 for Pintor.
Rounds 1, 6 and 9 even.
Pintor's a super fighter, one of my early faves. How do you rate him? He's a bit forgotten by most now.
