    Yes. I got it wrong. I vastly underestimated Beterbiev, and he deserves plaudits for breaking Gvozdyk down like that, in a back and forth game of violent chess.

    The rabbit punching in the clinch was absolute b.s. Ref sleeping at the wheel.

    The Nail can box his ass off. But he didn't have the heat to hold him off.

    Beterbiev is a physical beast.

    The Nail couldn't keep AB off him. He had success when he didn't engage him in the pocket but as Gvozdyk started to slow down, that was all she wrote.

    A guy with good legs I think would box AB's ears off. I'm not sure there is anyone at LHW ATM who fits that bill.

    Incredible win for Beterbiev. Totally outclassed a tough, undefeated champion in the division. That's amazing.

    Nonsense, lad.

    High levels of skill demonstrated by both men.

    Gvozdyk slightly more skilled, but Beterbiev was just too tough and had too much power for the Ukranian.

    Beterbiev just ruined CST80's whole month. We may have to put him on suicide watch. The whole set up was against Beterbiev. Ref wouldn't even let him infight.

    Beterbiev was in Gvozdyks head from the amateur days, he couldn't forget that knock out from 10 years ago

    Good fight though, the nail landed some good punches too

    The 2nd one was not a knock down. Push shove on the back. Thought the other two was.

    What know one seems to mention was when Gvozdyk got punched when he was down. That was a hard solid punch. He should have been given time.

    Basically this, yeah. I was really hoping Gvozdyk's edge in skill (and the lingering rumors of Beterbiev not being able to quite take it as well as he dishes it out) would make the difference. Alas.
