It was a rugged battle as Krael was able to get a lot of things done by boxing, and working behind a nice long jab from the outside. Bunch, who has been the most active fighter in the sport, as he was making his fourth ring appearance of 2021, was aggressive and giving just as much (if not a little more) then he was getting.
Both fighters fought at a nice pace and had good work-rates, which provided very few lapses in action, A lot of the rounds were close, but where Bunch was able to create space for himself was in a the middle rounds, where Krael did not throw as many punches as he did in other rounds..
In the end, Bunch took the decision 79-73, 78-74 and 77-75 to raise his mark to 14-1. Krael of Las Vegas is 17-18-3.
