First title defense.

Boxing Purist's picture

Very clear winner of every session. Will post my post fight review for this fight and the Louis versus Pastor endurance chessmatch soon.

Boxing Purist's picture

Farr controlled the first 2 rounds with his jab, the second Farr gets a bit more agressive and lands to the body while incorporating his right hand in, wwo clear rounds for Farr.

Sessions 3,4 & 5 Louis finally gets into the fight, starts landing with that cracking jab, sledghammer right and brutalizing Farr's body, all clear Louis rounds.

The sixth frame Farr re-established his jab, and lands a couple decent right hands. He does suffer a cut this round from Louis' jab, but he landed more and cleaner to take the session.

Round 7 was probably the closest of the fight, but Louis nicked it on the strength of his jab and blistering work to the body, even though there was very little of it.

Rounds 8 & 9 Farr took back over command of the fight, again with his jab as Louis looked to be taking the rounds off to conserve energy for the home stretch.

Frames 10,11,12,13,14 & 15 were controlled by Louis from start to finish.

Sorry for the abbreviated review. This one is based off memory, I took notes for the other fight reviews as I was watching. Then wrote them up by hand before posting here. And I meant to edit my original post with this review.
