i would go with a draw....they both landed shots in the early flurry but tough to tell who did better...George kept busy in the middle of the fight but most of his shots didn't appear to land or landed on the back
kind of a 5 out of 10 fight....would have like to see the initial exchange go longer it was a very promissing start but as usual with BGL it got boring fast
Thornton gives up plenty of size to Laraque and he was fighting with his right hand the whole time despite being a lefty. He managed to eek out the win. He also gets points for not falling on Laraque when he was down like 90% of the guys in the league would've.
THornton seems to know how to get a good jump on Laraque but Laraque came back strong and I give him a narrow win. This may be the year Laraque loses though. He's so strong but for a fighter his age may become a factor. 32 is not real old but he's not young like Orr, Godard ,Cote and so on.
