So now you've gone from Neo to RIV?

Looks markedly below here in a sparring match, dodges two blows and taken down in one move
I highly doubt Batman was taking that as anything other than gauging where Bronze Tiger was at.
Exactly. It wasn't a serious fight and it's not like BT is some lame.
Yeah but wasnt BT trashed by DS just a year ago?
To be fair I like he gets some respect here.

How serious the sparring encounter is being taken troubles me. Not deeply, but like, about as much as Buzzfeed and creepy pasta articles...

DS isn't Batman. Losing to Slade doesn't mean much here.

Yeah but later Batman stalemated the same DS.

Wasn't DS at a disadvantage against Batman since he had both eyes, though? I thought they made mention of that?

Yeah he was,there's also a reference of DS still regaining his peak level during a training session,after such fight.
This made BT's loss even worst,glad to see some respect,even if during a sparring match.

I'm still trying to understand how having both eyes put him at a disadvantage in the first place?

Haven't read it, but I assume it would be because his body, mind and fighting style (THREE THINGS) had adapted to only having one eye, and now that he has two, everything is different.

Like the reverse of going from two eyes to one, your body and mind (TWO THINGS) have to relearn how to do things.

That happened to King Snake(Bane's dad). He was(is? I haven't seen him since Blackest Night) one of the best fighters in the DCU but when the Lazarus Pit restored his sight his skill level dropped significantly because he was used to fighting blind. I think Tim beat his ass until he went blind again due to some cobra venom in his eyes or something like that.

Why didn't he just close his eyes?
