Tony Harrison after being knocked down in the 2nd round was fighting much better, but when it got to the 11th he got a little lax and when you get lax you can get caught.
Harrison admitted as much.
“I started getting a little lax and got caught. He earned it. I hate it, but he earned it. The game plan was to do a little boxing. But taking a year off, my body wasn’t used to it. He earned it and no excuses. I got caught slipping. I never trade offense for defense, he caught me in between. I feel like I let us down, I let me down. It’s one and one. Back to the drawing board.”
Charlo is a dog.
He might not be fundamentally sound as some other boxers, but he will keep coming and wear you down.
In what was the fight of the night Ajagba-Kiladze put on a slugfest.
Kiladze even put Ajagda down for the first time in his career.
Here is what Ajagda had to say about that.
“When I got knocked down, I didn’t see the punch coming. I tried to hit him with the left hook and that’s when I got caught,’’ Ajagba said. “He has a lot of experience and he’s a good fighter. This kind of fight will help me perform better in the future. This guy was a good fighter and he can take a lot of shots. I missed a lot of shots. Ronnie Shields, my trainer, kept telling me to work behind the jab and come back with the hook. It’s something that I have to learn to do. I made some mistakes, but I will go back to the gym and work on it. I’ll do better next time.”
