Puerto Rico – Ryan Pino (5-1, 2 KOs) vs Anthony Mercado (10-2, 9 KO’s) this past Saturday at the
Cancha Ruben Zayas Montanez
Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico.
Pino wins by unanimous decision 60-54 and 59-55 for Pino and 58-56 for Mercado But apparently not a crowd favor.
After watching the video of the full fight there is no question Mercado did more then enough to win the contest, Pino small and strong got tattooed all night by the pressing Mercado fought very gutty hurting Pino with a hard body shot Pino spits out his mouthpiece 3 times in the round with no points taken.
Pino was not a great defensive fighter that night being backed up all night winging wide shots getting caught flush with hard left hands by Mercado who demonstrated Skillwise to be the determining factor but fell short to the judges.
