it sounds like you went from your own opinion on the fight to the general public perception, and back to your own opinion again

as for the KO loss, it is the result of the dumb WBA 3 KD rule, Spoon never looked like he could not possibly survive, who knows what would have happened without the rule (keeping in mind Spoon had already dominated Smith and how you can turn back the tide like Marquez did after a disastrous 1st round)
