That was a close round. You could make an argument for either fighter but I would give it to HL Mencken.
Well Mencken has outscored his opponent in every aspect of the fight today. Only a scarily incompetent judge or two will keep him from a well deserved win... Over to the ring announcer for the scorecards.

HL Mencken very nearly forgot to thank King of Fists amongst all the excitement of his win but just as the interview came to a close, he screamed their name. Hopefully he'll get a few nice freebies in the mail as a thank you.
