    Nah judges were shit all night. first fight should’ve gone to Shipley.
    Either way that’s shitty on judges end Their job is to judge the fight not judge coaches

    Smh

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 12 Thumb down 10

  3. Truth 2.0 says:

    Shipley lost that first round 10-8 for sure, Krebs was landing bombs and dominated that round. Even with Shipley winning the final 2 rounds it becomes a draw. He was rocked multiple times in that first round.

    Shipley’s durability/toughness was super impressive. He came back to win the final 2 rounds (but both 10-9 IMO, that makes it 28-28)

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 9 Thumb down 6
