For two rounds, Sosha Rockwood and Carma Radford seemed content to stand and bang, trading heavy exchanges marked by Rockwood’s constant pressure and Radford’s heavy counters. And it seemed as though Radford was making the most of those exchanges, landing hard, precise shots throughout both rounds.
