    Off topic slightly but the USA women's soccer team were beaten by a boys under 15 team once!


    Hope this is a good scrap!

    Is it better than brocks sword though?!

    Lovely first round, not entirely one-sided either. Santos countered a couple of those oblique kicks really well.

    Still fancy Jones to improve and win it handily later in the fight.

    Jones legs look unstable.

    Santos in trouble, there'll be a rematch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Jones way too tentative! He could be 2 rounds down here


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,078 ✭✭✭✭rob316


    Santos looking miles better than Jones last two opponents anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Jones very much settled into the fight now, he’s only going to look better from here on in. Still believe he’ll get a late finish.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,078 ✭✭✭✭rob316


    Stepped up that round Jones did. Santos needs to push forward.

    Would Rogan ever shut up about Santos knee.

    Good round for Jones but he's playing with fire. He could be 2-1 down. Won't take much for Santos to nab another round


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Jones looks like absolute dogsh*t in there. He's advancing, but not actually throwing anything. What is he waiting for?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,919 ✭✭✭simongurnick


    Gave 1 2 and 5 to the brasilian but will be shocked if they give it to him


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    48-47 Jones for me.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    Pico Grams looks less and less impressive lately.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,047 ✭✭✭Jamiekelly


    48-47 Santos. Jones was doing very little.

    Jones had a 10-8 but it could easily be a draw. I think it's 48-46 or a draw.
    Kudos to Santos either way.

    I'd give it to Santos.

    10 8???

    10 8???
    Yeah the round he won clearly with a knockdown.

    Horrible fight!


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,353 ✭✭✭✭eagle eye


    I think Santos deserves a rematch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,579 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    That split went the wrong way for me.

    When?

    There was no 10-8 rounds there. This isn't boxing. A knockdown doesn't make a 10-8.

    Don't think so man. Two judges 48 47... no one gave it 10 8


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,078 ✭✭✭✭rob316


    **** off Jones stop trying to be so nice.


  • Registered Users Posts: 988 ✭✭✭brendanwalsh


    I had Santos 1 2 and 5. Jones is poor off the juice


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Even with the new rules, there was no 10-8 round in that, not even one you could make a compelling argument for.

    I had it as two of the judges did, but it really could’ve gone to Santos and I wouldn’t have complained. A seriously close fight, and I’d like to see the rematch in December if Thiago’s knee isn’t too bad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    There was nothing anywhere near a 10-8. We can't have been watching the same fight

    This is how I felt, very close, think Santos won 1 and 2, and Jones shaded the last 3, but I think you could give any round to either of them.

    Jones looked gunshy most of the fight.
