There are probably 5 different (and all credible) versions of this story.
Eddie Futch in an interview with KO magazine stated that he told Joe he was going to stop the fight. Joe stood up, but then sat down again.

The interviewer said that it must have been hard for a proud warrior like Frazier to take, to which Futch replied that it was, but Joe knew that Eddie was right.
Joe did argue with Eddie about coming out in the last rd.
Matter of fact Joe never let the resentment go against Eddie.
