Wallin dominated from the opening bell.He overtook Breazeale every step of the way.His left hand was on point, mixing the thrust and power shots, causing Breazeale to slow down considerably and not look good at all

Wallin is tired. Let’s see if Breazeale can take advantage of that. He goes down with Wallin to get him on the ropes, but his shots don’t have the same zipper and he’s missing wildly

Before the round begins, the ring doctor looks at Breazeale’s right eye. The doctor lets him continue

That seems to start a fire, Breazeale, as he binds on a sharp right uppercut Wallin absorbs the blow well and continues to stab Breazeale’s eye (10-9 Wallin, 80-72 Wallin)
