Early on, his speed, ring IQ and precision allowed him to outscore more limited opponent. Jorrin really had an excellent right hand by the way. He was relying on it heavily, was rarely setting it up - but He was able to get this punch to the target almost at will, particulary early while He was still fresh. Sato was 5 points down after 3 rounds, but did brilliantly to come back into the fight. He showed top-notch conditioning and was all over Jorrin from middle to late rounds. Jorrin wasn't able to handle the pace consistantly - so was forced to take some rounds off and pick his spots, but I thought He did so effectively enough. One thing about Jorrin - and I think many people were not very fond of him, I read opinions that He He was lucky in every one of this title wins - is He was very smart tactically, had good sense of where the fight "was at" in terms of scoring and clever at managing the fight, so able to trick some stronger and better conditioned fighters. I only see the first Larios fight as contoversial. Brodie I thought He beat clearly - in what was the best fight of the lot as well - and here, draw was not unfair but if anyone deserved a win it was Jorrin.
