March 19: Pacquiao v.s Morales - Page 2

i've never heard of ricky hatton but kostya is one of my favorite fighters. i thought he'd be retired by now though. the last time i saw him fight, he was the underdog, and he knocked out the guy they were hyping up, zab juda(?) i called that one.
Kostya is one of my favourites, too. I even have a stylish sweatshirt - "Tszyu Crew." Ricky Hatton is an undefeated Englishman, 38 wins I think, with a knockout punch. Some have questioned the quality of his opposition. I was there the night Kostya Tszyu "knocked out" Zab Judah. It was a bad stoppage for sure by referee Jay Nady, but Mr. Judah's post fight tantrum was disgraceful. Fearing a riot, I fled the Grand Garden Arena. Do you guys think "The Contender" is winning new fans for boxing? Haven't seen it but hear a lot of talk.

i thought it was a good stoppage. generally i feel that referees let fights go too long, especially in america. boxing is a sport, not a fight to the death. once zab got tagged, he was very vulnerable. he wasn't going to defend himself well, and the next punch could have caused permanent damage. i think it's better to err on the safe side. if you consider that the powers that be wanted judah to win, the ref had a lot of guts to stop the fight when he did. i think he was right.

I agree with that statement.  But in the case of Tszyu vs. Judah, there were only two seconds left in the second round when Nady called it off.  He should have given Judah a ten count.
