As we head into the second half of the fight, Nelson did indeed dig deep and came back with a solid sixth round. Nelson got more aggressive and landed right hand very impressively throughout the round. Reis was not nearly in control of that round.
We head into unchartered territory for Reis as she heads into the seventh for the first time in her career -- against a boxer who is in her fifth straight scheduled 10-round bout. Nelson 10-9. Nelson leads the bout 58-56.
