After a brief restart caused by Slick Nick coming out sans mouthpiece?you read that correctly?the rest of the third round went about as smoothly for the Brit.

Osipzak was either gassed or injured to the body (as Joe Rogan seemed to think), but he nevertheless survived the round without ever being in a huge amount of danger. Ludwig must've realized early in the round that his adversary wasn't going on the offensive, but the American simply couldn't muster enough power to get the stoppage he required.

He easily owned the five minutes, but Duane needed more than that after dropping the first two stanzas. Consequently, Osipczak gets a well-earned unanimous decision that ended on a whimper.

Or, what a brutal decision by the judges.

Duane Ludwig defeats Nick Oscipzak by split decision (28-30, 29-28, 29-28).
