tarver couldn't keep his hands up when he was most hurt. green failed to pull the trigger when he should have. yes that's greens fault. i can't tell u why. only green knows why. u can't allow someone as experienced as tarver to recover, u will regret it. and that's what happened.
tarver not a puncher?
green let him pummel him and tarver was happy to oblige. tarver is more than strong enough to ko anybody with a succession of punches.
I guess Green worked out that it's better to conserve energy rather than throw ineffectual punches.
You see round 7 as being a missed opportunity for Green, when reality it was more Tarver slipping off his game plan for an instant. Tarver was nowhere near stunned enough like RJJ was for Green to go complete assault on him, and both guys knew it too.
