I just rewatched the replay on HBO..I dont see where any controversy is coming from. Jr won the fight to me. He needs to get serious about his craft & stop using his last name to get his way however.
No way he won that fight. He was atleast two rounds down. I understand the controversy in power punches vs volume but JR was pushed around all night. Vera controled the fight and the pace. If JR would have knocked him down, that would have been a different story. But he was constantly looking for an excuse not to fight.
He was clearly not the aggressor... And did not land the most punches or power punches
I would have scored it 7-3 or 6-4 to Vera
