Herman vs Natal Scorecard

Ed Herman

“I just tried to keep the pressure on him and turn it into a street fight. I did that and I was able to win the fight. I wasn’t sure about the first round, but I thought I won the next two.

“Now I’m going to get healthy and get ready for my next fight.” 

Rafael Natal

“I thought I won the fight. You can never leave it in the hands of the judges. When I heard the first 30-27, I thought it was for me and I think he thought it was for me. But I don’t want to criticize the judges because they have a hard job and usually do a good job. But I was surprised by the decision.”
