Re: Referee - Tony Perez 'I Should Have DQ'd Muhammad Ali'
A hold and a clinch is one thing.
And a boxer can usually get away with a couple of 'cuffs' behind his opponent's neck.
But what Muhammad Ai did was perform in an 'unclean way' with 'intentional fouls',
which deserves a penalty.
Round 10 is a perfect round to view and ****yze. Mr. Ali was obviously tired, and
was attempting to ride out the round. His 'dirty tactics' were also 'flagrant stalls'.
After the 4th 'cuffing foul', which lasted 9-seconds, Referee Perez clearly should have
broken up the hold, and informed Mr. Ali that the 'foul' was way over the line, and
one more time he would be deducted a point.
Mr. Ali would go onto perform 10 more 'cuffing fouls' on Mr. Frazier.
A Referee with *****, would have DQ'd Muhammad Ali.
