03/06/12 Both Tarver and Kayode unhappy after draw
So Tarver v Kayode ended a draw and a very disappointing vibe at the end of the fight, many people thought this fight was going to offer so much more including myself. It was Kayode that started the fight well and it seemed that Tarver had his foot of the gas for most of the first half of the bout. It wasn't until mid way through the fight that Tarver decided to up his game and show Kayode a little less respect, offering some big shots but never really troubling Kayode. Had Tarver kept up the hard work and intensity he may have swayed the judges decision, but it looked as if he ran out of steam after his intensity over the previous few rounds. Many fight fans have Kayode the winner here, i have to be honest i couldn't really separate the 2 men and both had some great spells in the bout, but neither really worthy of winning the fight. Judges had the fight 115-113, 115-113, 114-114. Both men were left unhappy with the decision and ultimately wanting a rematch after feeling they had both won the battle, i suppose a rematch is inevitable, if it does happen lets hope it offers a bit more than this encounter.
