    On the replays of the initial punch that rocked Junior, it looks like he was simply backing up and didn't think he was within range of the overhand right. Cain leaned forward and his arm extended much further than JDS estimated that he effectively could.

    This appears to be the only real "mistake" that JDS made.

    What do you think?

    he was getting whooped before that shot which happened with only 1:22 left in the round.

    Cain didn't let Junior find his range, he was too aggressive.

    Cain landed two body shots and a hard left hook before the overhand right. It was only a matter of time

    He underestimated Cain's striking overall. And I hate to say that. That punch that knocked JDS down, after that, Cain already won the fight

    JDS approach was working fine until just a little before the big punch when he showed the beginnings of windage. He was ragdolling Cain every time Cain went for a TD (11 for 33). I think he underestimated the tenacity and pace of Cain.

    JDS gassed for whatever reason, probably the pace. That's what lost him the fight. Not the reach.

    Yeah it was the reach, obviously the reach.
    It's always the reach.

    I don't think he underestimated Cain at all. He said that Cain is one of the best in the division and knew it was going to be a tough fight. Cain was just the better man tonight and he dominated.

    Cain has always been my favourite HW, but that doesn't mean Junior can't come back and upset Cain once again.

    It almost appeared that JDS was not expecting Cain to strike with him. JDS kept saying before the fight that he thought Cain would try hard to use his wrestling and take him down. But Cain mixed it up very well and just came at him with everything. I believe though that Junior will learn from this fight. I can't wait to see his next one.

    What happened is that JDS did not land a huge shot behind the ear in the first minute of the fight. This fight was played out and it showed that Cain is the better fighter.

    JDS kept his hands down a lot, probably cuz he was gassed, but he seemed to avoid tons of shots.

    But Cain did land a big overhand right in the 1st to JDS chin so he only won because of that.
    See how that works? It's a retarded sentiment. The better man won on each night. Deal with it.

    Thanks for not shoving it up our throats:). Cain was the better man. JDS will come back and hopefully work on his cardio. Cain

    Yeah, but Cain's punch did not end the fight so the fight actually got played out. If Cain's punch had ended it there we probably would still not really know who does better if they don't catch each other early.
