I thought Le was kind of holding back as well and I guessed maybe to save energy, but I think that was a strategy. He is a feared kicker and few believe he would try to box with Rich.

Le suggested at the end that was a lucky punch just to be to be humble, IMO. We can clearly see he had his eyes open and perfectly locked on Franklin's face during the whole time during that fatal exchange. The move of an expert.
