Santiago Ponzinibbio is unhappy with the judgment of his recent bouts,
“When I was in there fighting, it’s the same scoring I had as when I rewatched it,” Ponzinibbio said.
“First round I put pressure and I controlled the distance. But he moved and it was difficult to maintain the distance, and he landed a couple more punches, and he won the first round, for sure.
“The second round I closed the distance. In the first minute and a half, he take the activity, but after that, I started to work more and put more pressure and control the center of the cage. It was a very close round, but after a minute and a half, I controlled the center of the cage, I gave a couple more punches, a couple of more kicks. It was a very even round, but I had a couple of more punches in my favor. In the last 20 seconds, I put a takedown and scored points. And with this, I thought I won the round.”
“I’m coming off two losses in a row and both of them I lost them by split decision and I think I won both fights,” Ponzinibbio said. “As of my last fight, even the champion Kamaru Usman made a Tweet saying I won the fight and I was more aggressive.
“I’m pissed off for the judge who has no idea how much work there is behind the fights and they put you one, two, three steps back in the career and that’s how we lose money. We make half the money. That’s bad. Some judges are terrible.”
