First round to b1, barely

I've got to hand it to va, staying on his feet, and landing two solidly admirable haikus to to body. (The Rosa piece has tremendous resonance.)

However, b1's feint with the much less powerful alliterive ku--seeming to come out of the corner weak--followed up by his wild, swing-for-the-rafters, haymaker-to-the-jaw Yoko piece would likely have resulted in a first round KO with a lesser opponent.

It's too early to tell, but this could have all the makings of a classic confrontation.
