R1- Both are patient and showing stiff jabs, but Charlo is also able to pinpoint a few lead right hands, particularly to the body.

R2- Charlo opens up with a flashy looping right-left hookercut combo, but Harrison starts to get into rhythm from there. Harrison is repeatedly catching Charlo coming in with jabs to the face, instantly disrupting his rhythm, while getting under the jab of Charlo as well. Harrison’s best moment is where he lands a 1-2-3 that gets Charlo off balance.

R3- From the start, Charlo is busier, and he opens up the round with a short rally. However, Harrison is getting under or catching most of these shots, while occasionally countering them. The jab is still throwing Charlo off, the right hand and hooks to the body are landing fluidly for Harrison too. Very nice boxing from Harrison in this round.

R4- As cited in the commentary, Charlo said his jab would “kill Harrison” going in, while he is getting outjabbed with ease. At times, the climate is going like this: Harrison jab, Charlo miss, Harrison jab, as Harrison improves his counter punching as time goes by. Harrison’s jab is not only landing with more accuracy, but also more of a thud. A few lead left hooks land late for Harrison, who wins another round clearly.

R5- Charlo had been unable to cut the ring off on Harrison in the previous rounds, but he is getting to him with more success now. Shortly after landing a pair of hooks to the body, Charlo takes a big right to the face that certainly gets his attention. He snaps back on track soon after and lands a clean right of his own. Charlo’s doesn’t seem to be as effective, but it certainly lands. Harrison is still winning the war of jabs, but Charlo is having success potshotting. Just as the round seems up for grabs, Charlo buckles Harrison at the end with an overhand right, effectively pocketing him the round.

R6- Charlo gets in a solid right cross in the opening seconds, but the rest of the round consists of him walking forward and being unable to close the gap, as Harrison tags him frequently with the jab. One jab in particular lands on the chin and snaps Charlo’s head back, but he comes forward after.

R7- Funny how the commentators are hard on Harrison’s strategy and saying he needed to make big changes, meanwhile, the judges and I evidently had him ahead at this point. Charlo gets in a right quickly, then disturbs Harrison with a left hook/potential thumb to the eye. Harrison jabs his way out of danger. They seem to share a similar amount of success offensively, but Charlo’s defense has become more effective than it was in any of the previous rounds, and him slipping as many shots as he did allows him to edge this swing round.

R8- Since the last round, Charlo has been succesful at evading most of the shots from Harrison’s combination punching. They trade right hands at one point, yet Charlo is the only one who follows up, as he lands a left hook shortly after. Charlo gets in another right-left hook combo soon after this. The right hand is landing with some regularity for Charlo overall in the round.

R9- Harrison takes a right hand-left hook to the body combo early, but comes back to catch Charlo coming in low with a lead right. Charlo walks directly into another right hand counter later, only to aggressively taunt Harrison in return. The jab of Harrison along with the two flashy counters allow him to pull away with the round. Despite me having Harrison ahead this late, I felt that Charlo would come on strong enough in the next three to run away with the fight.

R10- Charlo is stalking Harrison and using effective head movement to keep himself from plodding into most of his shots. They trade right hands late, but Charlo is getting more shots in from the outside, and his left hook is eye-catching whenever it gets in.

R11- Just as Harrison gets off balance early and tries to move back, Charlo switches to southpaw and rocks him with a lead right hook. Harrison is content to stay away after this and use his jab to keep Charlo at bay, but Charlo is now slipping and rolling under these jabs with ease. Charlo hurts Harrison late with a left hookercut up close, but is unable to maintain a strong follow up.

R12- From the start, Charlo picks up the pace and pressure. He misses a right, but follows with a left hook that hurts Harrison badly. Charlo potshots right hands from there, and Harrison holds after taking each one. One clinch in particular takes the ref about ten seconds to seperate due to Harrison ignoring his calls to break. Honestly, Harrison could have lost a point for holding following this sequence, at least at the end of the rounf. Despite punching himself out by the final minute and taking a couple of body shots, this still is a strong close for the champion and the easiest round of the fight to score. However, Harrison would ultimately bag his first and only world title in shocking and controversial fashion. I was shocked that Harrison won given his strategy and inconsistency, especially when noting that he had the hometown/event disadvantage. Harrison did box well throughout, especially early, clearly outjabbing Charlo and showing some smooth counters through the course of the fight. However, the consistency and slight edge in Charlo’s offense seemed to do it for him. On top of that, he certainly did more damage between the two. I was furious and labeled this a robbery (meaning Charlo won 8+ rounds), when I first saw it the night of the fight. I still don’t agree with the decision, but it was not a robbery. That said, Harrison definitely did not school him or win even seven rounds at best. I can’t even find seven full rounds to give him at that. Their argument (initiated by Charlo) would turn into bad blood leading into their instant classic of a rematch.
