Which makes every fight suspicious -- don't all of them go "a certain number of rounds"?
Where's the outrage of Marcel Cerdan throwing the LaMotta fight? Nobody was more mobbed up than Jake, and here's a champ with a 111-3 record "quitting" on his stool.
But, of course, Cerdan went "a certain number of rounds" first -- which he did!!!!
