Absolutely agreed. Another example would be Calvin Brock vs. Jameel McCline... I think round 5, Brock battered McCline around the ring and got knocked down hard. Got back up and continued the battering. 10-9 round for McCline.

I assume you are talking about Holyfield - Moorer I, where Moorer was down in the 2nd? IMHO that round was 10-8 for Holyfield.
