This was a first round match in the 2017 16 Carat Tournament.
This was so good. They wisely stuck to the big vs. small story and executed it very well. London really shined here as the veteran junior who knew how to give himself a fighting chance against the much stronger and bigger opponent. He showed great fire and took an even better beating. He believably almost won a few times (including a great back-to-back shooting star press sequence late in the match), and he made Bad Bones seem all the better for beating him as a result. This will probably be one of the true hidden gems of 2017. (****)
