”My phone is blowing up, everyone is texting me ‘Robbery!’ and ‘Till won!’” White said. “After the fight, they all looked at me and asked who won. I said I have no idea. Every round was so close. When you have rounds that are so close you almost lose track of scoring and trying to figure out who won. It was a tough fight to score.”
What do you think of this scorecard and Till’s win over Thomspon?
