    Great card! I was pretty sad to see Spratt go down but Trigg played a very intelligent if slightly boring game to a very obvious decision, and Bang’s KO of Sammy Morgan was very satifsying. I’ve always thought that guy was overrated.

    Waterson HANDLED parker, that girl is gonna be a force if she can fight that well in EXC!
