Webb comes out with the intention to work his way in straight away from the bell. Rose puts him off early with a stiff jab and a right uppercut. Rose working the straight punches in the middle part of the round. Getting the range right.
Starts to back Webb up by the end with a big overhand right.
10-9 Rose, though Webb looked pretty game it's not going to work.
Webb once again looks to work his way to the inside but Webb's jab is effective and keeps him away. The first time he does get close Rose hits him with a left hook to send him back out again.
Webb works his way to the inside a couple of times but Rose seems to be landing the cleaner shots. Webb's had some success there and lands a decent straight right towards the end of the round but still Rose's round.
Webb is putting his shots together well at times, jabbing and doubling up on the left hook to the body, but Rose's punches are looking much more impactful when they land. He's throwing jabs that almost look more damaging than Webb's combinations.
Round 1: Haskins. Entertaining opening round with both trading punches early on. Jamoye lands good scoring shots but Haskins counters well with the uppercut inside. Really close round. Haskins just edges it for commentator Barrie Jones and I tend to agree just. 10-9 Haskins.
Rose is backing straight up onto the ropes too often in my opinion. All well and good wanting to utilise the jab from distance but he's gotta be a bit more intelligent in his movement when a dude tries to close the gap on him. Both appear to be tiring a bit but Webb is maintaining a lot of his output, whereas Rose's has dwindled a bit and thus he's not pushing Webb back very much anymore. He's shown he can discourage him at times though.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand just as I type that he pushes Webb back on the ropes and unloads some punches................
Round 2: Haskins (10-8). Early in the round Haskins lands a big left hand to floor Jamoye and shake him badly. Haskins jumps all over Jamoye when he recovers but smothers his work and gets tied up inside. The Belgian puts the pressure on for the rest of the round but Haskins is boxing better and counters well with awkward shots from different angles. Haskins picking his shots well. 20-17 Haskins.
