1:44 Body shot!!!

Bernard swoops in and slaps at Oscar's sides with a right and a left before clinching, neither of which were caught well by the camera angle provided by HBO - but if you're paying attention you can both hear their smacks and plot out their logical trajectory.

1:43 OH, OSCAR!!

Six seconds of silence from the corner

Knockout punch lands @ 1:37 without Naz saying a word.




It's pretty clear to me that Richardson saying Oscar's name was done to mock him in the spirit of competition, not to warn him of anything premeditated or scripted out between them. Just listen to his tone. "Ohhhhhhh, Oscar!!" as in "I bet that hurt, huh?? Poor little baby..."

It makes Naz sound like a typical kid in the hood watching someone lose a fight on the playground, actually.
Yeah, that's one way of looking at it.

The conspiracy theorist in me wants to say, though, that they planned that ahead of time.
