Yana clearly won the first two rounds by doing more but reneau clearly ****** her up in the third.
Should have been a draw!

Hughes won 2 Rounds clearly.

The Ivanov Decision not popular but less of a robbery. Rothwell clearly won the 3rd. The 1st 2 were close. 

The biggest problem with that decision is one ****tard gave Ivanov the 3rd.
