Barry Jones, what a legend!
This was a great performance from old Baz, it was very close, but I thought he just edged it, the cards were wide, 118-110, ridiculous, but I believe the right man got the decision. Palacio was good, he applied pressure, threw with variety, with activity, high output, he was awkward, and he ws the heavier handed of the two, but Jones, with his movement, defence, cleaner work, and better use of what power he had, was enough for him to win the fight, I think he did enough, early in the fight to take a crucial round or two, he was outboxing Palacio at times, he just never got control of the fight, neither fighter did, and it was so even, so close, overall, I just thought Jones edged it by one round of a few which were debatable rounds, with the two fighters getting the better of each other, in different tactical ways.
