Pretty clear 29-28 I know the judges kind of got it right but there’s always one just that gets a bad scorecard that would cost someone in another fight. I don’t see how someone scores it 30-27 unless their not doing their job and their looking at their phone

Second round was close if you argue that Ewell didn't do any damage while Guttierez did some significant damage. I would have given it to Ewell as well, but I understand the argument the other way.

I think Chris gets exposed against someone who counters any time he throws blind leg kicks with no set up
