Most of Brashear's punches were big looping hooks, while Thornton was inches from his face. After all these years, doesn't he realize those hooks are only hitting the back of the head of the guy he's so close to. I did like how they both started out with jabs. You don't see that much.
thornton is a gamer. hung in there really well despite taking at least three huge pounders to the noggin. nice of brash to ease up at the end, he knew thornton was at the end of his fight rope. lot of people rip on brash for whatever reason, but dude is strong as hell. and throws heavy punches. throws with the forearm, not the fist. probert was the first to master that technique
