Not a good fight at all, after a couple views of this I decided to go with Eager because of the solid upper cut he gave Rupp, Rupp didn't seem to want to do anything after that so obviously it stunned him. I don't really count takedowns for anything cause it's not that hard for a 230 pound guy to toss someone 15 pounds lighter.
Eager won this fight with one uppercut stunning Rupp. Rupp spent the rest of the fight with his head turned away, just holding on. Eager threw alot of body shots when that's all Rupp would offer him. Rupp took Eager down at the end but not with a punch.
Ben Eager got the stronger of the shots in with some strong uppercuts. As for the takedown by Rupp, he was just trying to make up for the fact that he wouldn't expose himself to actually throw any punches bc he did't want to get hit. The takedown is a very cheap strategy to woo the crowd, just get in there and toss your fists. This fight was too boring, if you're gonna drop the gloves, you have to be willing to take a few shots. These guys just wrestled around and would not throw with both hands, Rupp just kind of distanced himself as far as he could from Eager, they both just have to get in there and let fly, I don't want to see a damn waltz, and I know nobody else here does.
