They were like that throughout the entire round, although the one who saw the checkered flag first was Israel Staircase followed by Francesc Cucharrera and Anthony Ford Dunn.

In the second round everyone expected a similar fight but we were left with the desire since Israel Escalera fell to the ground in the dirt area and nothing stood between them.
