"We sparred 2 times, 10 rounds, it was good work, but I think I got the better of him in those sparring sessions.

Man, those words alone...

I hope it really does get made.

Good stuff.

Can't decide whether i like Virgil Hunter or not. He is a good trainer but you shouldn't need to play these mind games with other fighters.

Bizarre that it was so widely reported that he weighed 163 on fight night. He didn't look any bigger than usual.

Glad he commented on the weight issue. That was really bugging me. 153 makes sense and it's good that he's still making weight comfortably.

Veteran move. He knew Dallas was in for it, it was his DUTY to stir the pot and get Matthysee out of his zone.

Didnt work though, but had it worked, Dallas was winning the first rd, and may have gotten comfortable and started cruising, who knows.
