Even Mills Lane let a bout go on after a huge bite. Referee discretion IS a rule. I have a problem with the whole "Shoulda been DQed" mindset. "Coulda been DQed" is valid, but should isn't really on the balance of the thing. It's on tthe ref.
This is how I see it, and great example of Mills Lane there

Webbiano; I wasn't talking about the actual decision being overturned earlier. My point was should the general opinion on Ali be that he cheated to win that fight?
