Top fight..Rocky would have been a long reigning champion in any other era, he really took it to Pedroza and hurt him a couple of times.
In the end though Eusebio had to many tricks up his sleeve. To slick and really turned it on in the championship rounds.
I had it 9 rounds Pedroza...4 rounds Lockridge and two even. I could see someone having Lockridge up after 10 if they scored the even round for Rocky and another close one I saw just for Pedroza.
But clearly Eusebio had the late rounds with Rocky potentially stealing the last.
Dont see anything controversial about this one.
I thought it was pretty close myself. Pedroza gave away too many early rounds and then had a battle on his hands to claw his way back. I thought he edged ahead toward the end and had some big rounds, but Lockridge bravely stole the 15th and the fight ended a draw.
Eusebio Pedroza vs. Rocky Lockridge I: 143-143 Draw
Pedroza: 7,8,9,10,12 and 14( 10-8 ).
Lockridge: 1,2,3,4,5, 11 and 15.
Rounds 6 and 13 even.
I can see someone having it for Pedroza by 2 or 3 points, but 5 points seems rather wide to me WAR.
