- Joe Calzaghe fight - was finding the pace of the fight too difficult to maintain and feigned a low blow, cowardly grimacing on the floor in embarrassing fashion, receiving a 5 minute rest at a critical time and hoping that corrupt ref Cortez would disqualify Calzaghe.
- Robert Allen fight - Not sure which one of the famous trilogy this was, think it might have been the 2nd fight where Hopkins dived out of the ring and then pretended to be injured to get the fight called off, really cringe-worthy stuff. Sure there will be some more examples of 'old school' Bernard as well but i'm sure you get the picture of the kind of stuff I'm looking for.
Now its your turn, give me examples of fighters who disgraced their own fans, robbed them out of they're hard earned money and cowardly looked for ways out during fights . . . . . .
Utter unadulterated bullcrap>>>>>>>>>>>>>
1... Chad Dawson DELIBERATELY!! threw Bernard to the floor, separating his shoulder
2...Bernard kicked Calzaghe's cowardly ass. That was a blatent low blow as you'd know if you knew anything about boxing. I doubt if Calzaghe landed 30 LEGITIMATE!! punches aqll fight long mos were illegal inside of the gloves slaps.
3... Mills lane knocked Bernard out of the ring yet another blatent foul. Again Bernard was LEGITIMATELY injured.
Bernard Hopkins only lost 2 fights legitimately Jones.jr I & Dawson II
Calzaghe & Taylor got gift dec they did not deserve
