Chagaev's corner did the responsible thing. Wach's should have pulled their fighter out after eight IMO. That beating he took probably will affect him down the road. The Shannon Brigg's beatdown by Vitali should have been stopped earlier also. Both Wach and Brigg's had already proven their grit and courage. No point in prolonging these one-sided beatings for the full twelve rounds. The fighter's are too brave and proud to quit so the corners need to step up.
