    Conlan looking very dialled in but Baluta is throwing a lot of shots to watch out for. Being picked apart at times though.

    Not particularly tbh, I've heard lots worse. Conlan is doing the better work so they're right to credit it and they're acknowledging when Baluta is doing well too.

    I think they're being fair so far. Baluta is throwing a lot but missing a LOT.

    He might win a decision but nothing easy about it so far!

    Could easily see Baluta break him down from here.

    Baluta throwing punches non stop, but most being caught on the forearms and arms of Conlan, still he was too active to not win it. But Conlan still more accurate.

    It's very competitive, I have Conlan 4 up, maybe 3-1 up.

    Referee is awful.

    Commentary team spot on saying Conlan should be punching more off of his defensive movement. Dropped a round because of it.

    Baluta round the 5th

    4-1 or 3-2 Conlan.


    Conlan staring to look a little frayed, not as sharp and it paying the price

    Baluta puts on a serious pace I'm surprised he lost those fights earlier in his career because his style is a handful for almost anyone.

    Round 6 Conlan 10-9

    Mick lands a nice jab then an overhand right, puts Baluta down, their feet were tangled. Mick working the body well, landing a hard right from range. Left lead from Mick to the chin, he's doing much better this round. Mick is countering his flurries with rights to the gut. Mick goes southpaw, Baluta flurries an misses a lot.
