It probably is a step down in intensity from their first bout, but wouldn't be?
It is still going to be mentioned as a fight of the year candidate and it was a very close, very intense fight with both guys landing a lot of clean shots but without the fight devolving into a hands-down slugfest. If you like boxing at all, I think it's a fight worth seeing. They've probably set up a third fight later this year.
