    R1: 10-8 Soto
    R2: 10-9 Soto
    R3: 10-9 Takayama
    R4: 10-9 Takayama
    R5: 10-9 Takayama close
    R6: 10-9 Soto
    R7: 10-9 Takayama close

    Soto is so lazy lol. Getting outworked. He landed the bigger shots obviously. But Takayama outworked him easily and if you like output > power it could be a very close fight at this point. Who would have thought that after R1...

    Who will show up tonight? Billy or Joe? I don't think he will disappoint though, biggest fight of his life and gypsies rise up to it. He has the skills to get out of tough pressure spots and back-foot game, to have to make Canelo have to reset. Things Canelo had struggled back in the earlier days. Is his foot speed still slow? These are some of the reasons why I have been waiting all this time for it. I think even Canelo wants to see what he could do against a slick mover. We'll know all a lot soon. This has potential to be great, especially if BJS can land some counters.

    Takayama's punch resistance and engine are truly impressive for his age, 37 is ancient at these lower weights!

    Takayama's head is too big for his body. That's why he can take all those big punches.

    Anybody else starting to feel a little concern for Takayama?

    He is taking too many big shots for my liking, he is game an he keeps coming but as he is getting more tired he looks like he could end up getting hurt here.

    I'm surprised no one has been cut since this a Takayama fight.

    Alright, to hell with the glandular pods of Himalayan ungulates. Musk going forward needs to be prepared exclusively from Takayama gonadal extract, aka the manliest substance on earth. All in favor say aye.
