finally they were trying to do something in 15th if they had any stamina left.
This is not true. I grew up in the era of 15 rounders, and let me tell you, some of the most exciting finishes came in the now-obliterated CHAMPIONSHIP rounds. They were called this because they were the rounds the separated the "champ" from the "chumps,"

It is a TRAGEDY that television stole the championship rounds from us all those years ago. All to fit boxing into their hour-long time slots. They should be brought back ASAP.
