I really liked the Curran / Freire fight. Curran's boxing looked real good. I think he could have ended it if he was more aggressive.

I was shocked that one of the judges gave the fight to Pitbull. It was a good close fight but there is no way Curran lost three rounds.

I agree, definitely should have been a UD, but at least the right guy won
