Xu Can Retains WBA Title, Decisions Manny Robles

WBA featherweight titleholder Xu Can successfully defended his WBA featherweight title, defeating Manny Robles III by unanimous decision. Can was making his second
defense of the world title he won from Jesus Rojas on January 26 2019. From the opening bell, both fighters chose to fight in the pocket, exchanging combinations in the center
of the ring. By round six, Xu began to close the distance between the two fighters, letting his hands go and connecting with more regularity. Xu finished most combinations by
digging a left hook to the body of Robles. Both fighters laid it out on the line during the final two rounds of the fight. Both traded vicious shots in the center of the ring, connecting
with hooks and crosses. Scores were 120-108, 119-109, and 118-110 all in favour of Xu Can.
