This denoted the first run through in Jones’ profession that a rival has ever won a battle against him on any of the three judges’ scorecards. Jones was also speculative and reasonable with his offence–nearly to say the least.
Santos set the tone right on time with some hard calf kicks however appeared to hurt his knee in the second round. Jones pushed ahead of the whole battle and outlanded Santos in everything except one round.
Be that as it may, on occasion, it appeared Santos was the more risky warrior.
Jones completed a great deal of good work on Santos’ waist and legs with kicks, however, everything except one round (the third) could have gone whichever way without debate. When it was finished, the two men required assistance strolling from the confine as a result of harmed legs, and I was left pondering when the rematch would be declared.
