This was a fantastic fight, but I really can't understand how Banuelos took the fight. He won the first round, but I thought Jorgensen decisively won the second two.

I agree, but i guess the second round was seen more as a swing round in the judges minds. Personally i thought that Jorgensen was back to normal and ready to bang more towards the beginning of the round, but i can see how it would be scored for Banuelos as he continued his barrage until midway through the second where i feel Jorgensen took over and dominated the rest of the fight.

i agree with this thread.

It always seems the split decision losses end up losing me massive amounts of money.

I thought Jorgensen won those last two, but I had picked Banelos so that gave me 5 pts so no complaints I guess.

I had Jorgensen winning but I tend to be a little bias when watching. The second round was too close. But he was always in control and stalking Banuelos the whole fight and came close to finishing him several times it was definately a steal but i am not upset because Jorgensen should have finished him.

I kept yelling head-kick cause banuelos' hands were droping lower every second. He only threw one in the 3rd round.

great fight

Banuelos won round 1 for sure. Jorgensen won round 3 for sure.

Round 2 was extremely close, but I was thinking Banuelos might have edged it out. The judges couldn't have judged this one right in everyone's eyes. That's for sure.

that was a great fight i also thought jorgenson pulled it out but it was close. i wouldve won a lot of real money if jorgenson got the nod i had him as the center piece of 3 large parlays, misery.
