That fight really opened my eyes to how lethal and ruthless Cain's pace is. (I knew he was fantastic but that performance really was above and beyond).
That big first punch that landed on JDS was definitely the beginning of the end. He couldn't recover and mount and sort of offence towards Cain. I know some of Cain's TD's look telegraphed, but that pace wore on Junior to the point where he dropped his hands.... well the rest is history, brilliant game plan. On a side note, did that punch actually break Junior's jaw or was that rumours floating around? It would make total sense why he couldn't gather his bearings for the next 4 rounds.
I'm all for a rematch down the road, but that would mean JDS would have to win 2-3 convincing fights and that's also assuming Cain doesn't lose to Reem.
Like both Cain and JDS, I did pick Junior to win 2nd Rd TKO and was proven wrong. They're both two different fighters, now Junior has to pick himself up and go down the road to redemption.
