The fight took a slower pace compared with the others taking place that night in Dublin, as Hua - seemingly in sympathy for the long-retired heavyweight champion - was out of breath himself before the 2nd round was done!

It was 3 rounds of slow, loping swings and kicks, with heavy jabs and generally a lot of mediocrity. The fight also went to the judges, who predictably gave their decision to Rua.

But I don't care. Seeing Coleman back in action is enough to fit this one somewhere in my top 10.
That was also the first fight that Coleman ever gave up a takedown, to Rua of all people. That showed it was time for him to go, I would of loved to see a fight with him and Shamrock back in the day.
