Anyone watch this less than thrilling fight? I only watched it because I had money on Coleman (Arnaoutis is shot). Now, it was an awful fight and a close fight. I admit I may have had some bias but I scored the fight a draw. Some of the rounds I gave both guys could have gone either way.
Sam Rosen and the normally solid Wally Matthews talked about this fight as though it was a complete whitewashing by Mighty Mike. Matthews had it 118-110 and Rosen had it 119-110. They raved about Arnaoutis' movement (decent) and jabbing (less than impressive). Last I checked, jabbing and movement don't alone win you a fight. I thought Coleman's defense was very good (ring generalship) and he also landed the harder shots, granted they were often looping rights (clean, effective punching).
I'm happy to cash my ticket but was anyone else taken aback by the announcing? Or am I the idiot and this was the robbery of the century?
