    Phenomenal performance from Rodriguez, even given the timing aspect, size and experience were against him, Rungvasai still had to be broken down, and he implemented the perfect game plan. Rungvasai couldn't deal with Rodriguez's footwork at all, he couldn't cut him off, couldn't apply any pressure, and Rodriguez was always making adjustments with his feet to set up his shots. Rodriguez's speed in hand and foot was a factor, I don't think Rungvasai was affected mentally by Rodriguez's hand speed, but because Rodriguez was throwing 2-3 punch combinations and not staying in front of Rungvasai, his hand speed was a problem. Rodriguez's blocking was great, especially considering Rungvasai's power, he didn't get backed up because he was comfortable when Rungvasai let his hands go, but Rungvasai struggled to get through the guard, and wasn't building any momentum off his clusters of punches, he needed Rodriguez to punch with him, but Rodriguez used the ring, and he established his jab. Rodriguez didn't make the mistake of focusing too much on variety when Rungvasai was more and more of a target for the left hand, once Rodriguez had started walking him down, the stoppage was imminent. Rodriguez seemed strong at 115, the Cuadras fight was great preparation for the weight and a great learning fight in general. Pita Garcia did a good job for this fight, with Robert having to focus on Joshua's preparation for the Usyk rematch in the weeks of Rodriguez's training camp.

    R8- The ringside doctor examined Molina in between rounds and contemplated stopping the fight, which honestly would have been the best decision. Molina seems to really go for it, slinging several roundhouse lefts and taunting Crawford throughout after walking through his offense. A left uppercut allows Crawford to momentarily spin Molina into a corner, and he staggers Molina into the corner across from it soon after with a left to the body and right hook to the head. Clearly hurt, Molina finally goes down from a vicious triple right hook combo to the head, body, then head. The ref immediately stops the massacre. Masterful performance from Terence Crawford, who fought the perfect fight to dominate every second against a world class brawler. Not only did he effortlessly outbox, but he also brutally outslugged the slugger. Aside from a few punches far in between, the best things Molina did in the fight were show tons of heart, as usual, and wear real cool Riddler-attire to and in the ring. While Crawford did not dispatch of Molina as easily as DeMarco did, he certainly is second in that regard, but more importantly dished out the worst, most lopsided beatdown that Molina ever endured in his entire career. Terence Crawford arguably deserved to be fighter of the year for 2016 in what would be a second time in my opinion (the first being 2014, unofficially), only behind Carl Frampton if not. In the post fight interview, Max Kellerman entertained the matchup of Crawford and Spence (who was about to challenge for the world title) for the very first time. In what would be six years after that interview took place, hopefully the boxing Gods finally goft us that fight this October!

    R7- This round is a repetitive sequence occuring- Crawford spearing Molina with left hands and right hooks before pivoting away or spinning Molina out of position, seemingly taking nothing in return.

    R6- In an opening exchange that Crawford dominates with timing and clean punching, a flush left to the chin hurts Molina, who grits his teeth like the warrior he is and attempts to fight it out. Crawford is still having his way, landing punishing body blows and doubling up on the left and even left hookercut at one point. We also see Crawford disallow Molina to get inside still, turning him around himself entirely at one point.

    R5- Effectively being the matador, Crawford has done a good job at keeping Molina from getting on the inside, and a good job at keeping him from making it ugly inside when he does. Everything Molina throws seems to hit the air or shoulders of Crawford, who is countering him effortlessly.

    R4- Crawford is sticking and moving, but still power-boxing, walking Molina into lead uppercuts, hooks, and crosses. The body work of Crawford has been sharp too, as he causes Molina to double over with a left to the body before landing a straight right to the side of the head.
