This was only the second or third time My grandson has watched a full fight with me... yes he's what you would call a very casual fan... unless there's otherworldly action or traumatizing KO's,.. he'd rather be listening to M & M or watching Anime' videos. The only thing missing from the fight was Figueroa putting a Goku-like Kame-Hame-Ha finisher on Arakawa. These are the types of fights that draw in the casual fans... not Rigo vs Donaire masterpieces... too bad the guys who engage in these types of battles can't last as long as the Bhop's or Wlad Klitschkos of the world
