Round 3










Full disclosure, I missed the first round, so I can't give my recap there, but from what I saw, I don't have a problem with those that are giving Aftershock the win. The crowd, as has become normal with Toronto were really bad though and made both guys material come off worse than it could have with a more receptive audience. Here's hoping that doesn't become the theme of the night.

A. Ward vs. DNA

Round 1













Round 2









Round 3










So this was really good. DNA had one of his better performances in some time, and A. Ward continued his solid run on KOTD. Fairly debatable battle, consensus seems to be A. Ward 2-1, but I can definitely see an argument for DNA. Good showing that will help both.

Chilla Jones vs. Gjonaj


Round 1






Round 2








Round 3











The story of this battle was the same for both, but in different ways. Both got stronger as the battle progressed. For Gjonaj, his first round was a bit shaky, second was stronger, and his third round was his best. For Chilla, every round started a bit slower, but he picked up the aggression by the end of the round. Gjonaj mentioning Mario in his third really helped Chilla as it caused Chilla's 3rd round Mario scheme to hit much harder. This battle will likely look better after a couple of watches, but it was a good showing live.

We'll break there for part 1, check out part 2 here.
