Default Re: Roy Williams should have been awarded the KO in the Shavers fight

Perhaps. And if it had been another referee or different set of men in Shaver's corner, your proposed outcome may have occurred. But with all due respect, I don't think that we should be remiss in denying Earnie credit for weathering the storm and coming out victorious. its moment's like those that make boxing most memorable and Shavers gave us one of the best examples of what a fighting heart looks like. It was very similar to a scenario that occurred when Earnie himself had a young talented champion on the canvas, who was very nearly KO'd.
