A good match, even though the crowd was extremely quiet by the Houston 1980s fans standards. It might be that Blanchard belongs to another territory, or it might be that Conway is not over enough as a single babyface, I can't really tell for sure but I will side with the champion on this one. Even in the ring, the challenger never fully impressed me, he was pretty basic and mainly got his points across thanks to the good Blanchard selling. I liked the quickness they showed at the beginning and towards the end, the finish was also pretty well done
