What, can't find the Agyei-Dua and Richard Commey bouts anywhere! Not cool.
At least there's the Yoan Pablo Hernandez/Troy Ross fight in a few.

Now on from Germany are middleweights Domink Britsch vs. Robert Santos.
Rd. 1 just ended. Britsch working behind the jab.
Rd. 6 - If Santos doesn't start being more active, Britsch's steady jabbing, occasional combos and effective movement will definitely win this for him.
Sep 15 2012, 03:26 PM
Rd. 7 - Well, well, well, the worm has turned. Santos sends Britsch to the canvas, thanks to a nice left to the body and an earlier right hand.
Rd. 8- Santos going for the kill.
Wow! The referee stops it due to Britsch not responding to Santos' onslaught. His strategy paid off.

After that bit of madness, I think the Hernandez/Ross bout's on next. I didn't catch their names and the guy should obviously have never touched the ref, but that was a very, very questionable stoppage. Is Germany becoming Europe's equivalent of Texas?

Got to love this. A live band's playing for Hernandez' ring entrance. Even though I made the comment about the questionable ref'ing, Germany's been fantastic for boxing.

Rd.1 - Hernandez started off the way the taller guy should. Shooting out that jab and using his size advantage. Ross showed some interesting stuff. He could be threat with the counter punch.

Rd. 3 - Very exciting. A lot of power punches by both guys. Ross is coming on nicely. Hernandez stopped the quality jabbing from the first round.
Rd. 5. The fourth round was a slower round, which seems to be to Hernandez benefit. So far Hernandez is back to the outside game. He's probably ahead in this round so far, but Ross has shown success with the counter and he's also using his jab a bit to advance.
What! Hernandez gets knocked down! I think it was a right hand.
It was started off by a left, but I think the biggest punch was a right hand.
Rd. 6 - Hernandez survived the 5th. I think that Ross could pull this off, but Hernandez could also skate by because he can keep it on the outside.
Rd. 8 - Ross might have missed his opportunity, because now he has to get back on the inside and Hernandez has learnt his lesson from before. Still though he did rock Hernandez earlier with big punches and might be able to do it again.

Rd. 9 is bananas!!
Rd. 11 - Like 10, less activity from both guys. Throughout the fight, Ross has been trying to land his big hooks. This one is close. Ross' trainer seems to be on point.
Rd. 12 - Ross starts off with the jab. He's advanced behind it opportunistically throughout the match. Hernandez has made it hard for him, but Ross used his jab intelligently.
Hernandez is awarded the UD. A UD was a bit much because he got knocked down and the point margin was definitely off. A split decision for Hernandez, a draw or even a Ross victory (he would have to give Hernandez a rematch anyway and I doubt that Hernandez will give Ross a rematch), would have been fair. Great boxing match, very nicley done by Ross. Hopefully his management get him some good fights.
