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.
Found my card sweet...a tad different to what I remember but here it is.
Pedroza-Lockridge I - 146-141
Rounds 3 and 15 Even
Could easily see the 3rd, 4th and 15th (on reflection I should have given the last to him) for Rocky but felt that Pedroza did some very good work himself.
Perhaps the final score is not indicative of the closeness of the the bout but Ive got to score each round on their own and I thought Pedroza just edged some of the more contentious ones, and had a big second half of the fight.
The whole fight the commentators were very bias against Pedroza.
