    Dear Matt,

    Went to see my son fight last night. Got on this page to share his victory with his six siblings. All you did was talk about Camus. How about how Menigoz dominated while standing and almost choked him out at the end of the fight.? It was definitely a good job by both fighters. However, when reading your write up, one must wonder if you are some how related to Mr. Camus or a close friend.

    I understand that Camus may be more well known, however, I believe the focus should have been more on the winner not the loser.

    Respectfully,

    Ed Menigoz (I am allowed to be biased, you should not.)

    I’ll grant that Camus’ name is mentioned more, but that in itself does not constitute bias. It was a very tough fight to call and judge, but Rob clearly won the third which gave him the victory.

    Thanks for stopping by the site.
