You heard the boo's, after the fight. Most there (close to his hometown) thought Ruslan won.
Also, I've never seen Ruslan fight, most were calling him a C-level ESPN2 fighter.
I think goin toe-to-toe with a ESPN fighter (not my words, he sure didn't look like one too me) hurt him tonight. If he came in and destroyed him it would have been different. It was have erased the Pacman memories. He also got knocked down twice.
