  1. Well, that fight was nothing like I expected and everything I’d hoped… I’m low-key salty that Roxy didn’t disengage from the ground pressure in Round 3 as the finish was SO there, and the humbling woulda been that bit sweeter thereafter. But respect due, ‘cos that might well be the best performance I’ve seen from her.
