    23/10 Andrade points . Thought Andrade fitness was shocking but he is so skillful.

    100%. Ref allowed Andrade to ruin the fight as a contest and as entertainment.

    Even against a brawler and fighter that doesn't hold for half the fight utilising an uppercut? There probably aren't many boxers you would find entertaining in the sport if you don't want to see Williams at all again

    This was not a close fight in my eye. William was hurt in several rnds. He was game but that was it

    I don't think Williams performed as well as he could, when he seriously hurt Andrade, he just smothered his work rather than take half a step back to leverage punches in.

    My card was effectively this:

    1 Andrade
    2 Andrade 10-8
    3 Williams
    4 Williams
    5 Andrade
    6 Andrade
    7 Andrade
    8 Andrade
    9 Williams
    10 Williams
    11 Andrade (was this or a draw).

    Andrade is so frustrating, incredibly smart and he never broke until the ref either pulled apart, or tapped him, just ignored the break command until that happened and used every second to rest.

    His output was abysmal second half of the fight.

    Andrade clearly won but what a awful guy to watch

    How frustrating though, as the first two rounds were good from him

    Without that clinching Williams takes more rounds for sure

    "He's a very good fighter, better than I thought, more slippery...I couldn't really get going in terms of landing shots because...i hurt him a couple of times i feel but he was gone before I knew it and I couldn't capitalise on it...i know i'm tough...i can take a good shot...when i went down i thought "i taken his best shot, got nothing to fear"...i don't feel like i'm going to take too much of a step back i'm going to stay at world level...he's the best of the champions except for nothing but respect for him."
