The Son of a Rican legend — W-Vas — has some type of pull with judges. In all his losses, he clearly got his arse torched. But one judge always made the darn thrashing a split verdict by gifting him with winning that scorecard.

OMFG! Marvelous M-So got payday for his loss to W-Vas.

And y'all know da deal. And it's real! Pinoy TIME, BABBBEEEE! [url] Holla!

Sonsona has talent but needs a lot of refining. A lot..

I am not sure what Vazquez's strategy was in this fight. He survived the early onslaught and looked to be in a position to take over the fight. Sonsona was tiring, pushing his punches, making plenty of mistakes, etc. But after winning a couple of the middle rounds, Vazquez stopped punching. If he had pressed just a little, he easily would have carried the night. Almost reminded me of the second fight between Seth Mitchell and Jonathon Banks where Banks just stopped letting his hands go after seemingly seizing control of the fight.
