He kept himself in shape and he could keep throwing a lot of punches...but his reflexes and punch resistance was getting pretty worn by that stage.
I think Medina was past prime but nowhere near shot. Harrison is a little underrated, he maybe 1 of the strognest featherweights ever and as tough as old boots. If Medina deserved the decision over Tapia thats also showing decent form
