To those who say Martinez was the only one landing effective punching; Williams made up for the flush shots he ate with his own, he had Martinez on queer street at one stage with a straight left (round 6 I think?)
Will watch it again, was a quality fight. A rematch for the WBO interim (useless) and the WBC at 154 is essential IMO.
I think it was the end of the 4th round when Williams landed a big left hand and Martinez was hurt.

Ive watched and scored up to round 10. Its been a good scrap so far but I feel the commentators, ring side scorers and obviously pro Lockridge arent giving Pedroza enough credit.
Basically an end of round poll has Rocky shutting out EP after 7 and even when Pedroza wins clear rounds there are still like 40-50% voting for Rocky.
Ignoring a lot of good bodywork and consistent scoring from Pedroza in favour for Rocky landing or half landing a bigger eye catching shots and being the aggressor.
Rocky made a great start and has rocked EP a couple of times..but the 9th and 10th were BIG rounds for Pedroza, with some vicious and exciting exchanges..Great work from both men.
So far Ive got it 5 rounds Pedroza, 4 round Lockridge and 1 even...with as I said Pedroza starting to get on top when I stopped it.
I shall watch the rest of it tommorrow and post my final card.
I thought Pedroza won it fairly, I didn't see the big controversy about it.
