Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

Duran - Dejesus II. I have this fight somewhere but just watched it on Youtube (thanks Addie). Dejesus is a true badass for having knocked Duran twice in there series. I think Dejesus could've been a top 40 ATG if not for the great Duran.

I gave Dejesus the first 2 rounds (10-8 in the 1st with the knockdown). I gave Duran the rest of the rounds. The 5th round was close (gave it to Duran). 10-8 for Duran in 7th due to a knockdown.

This is a great performance by Duran. Dejesus looked really sharp but Duran was just better. Dejesus had success with the left hook against Duran but maybe violated the rule "don't hook with a hooker". After the first 2 rounds Duran's hook was getting there quicker and stronger. Dejesus often hooked with no setup and Duran figured that out after a few rounds.

sidenote: I believe the referee is the same who had the horrendous stoppage in the Duran - Marcel fight. I didn't notice him much in this fight, as it should be.
