Further, although I haven't seen the fight, the AP account describes it as a "bruising" match, which doesn't sound like a total slaughter.
Please do not 'ummm' me.
Turpin beat ****ell a lot more cleanly and efficiently; he wasted less energy, looked better, and outperformed ****ell on a professional, tidy level. He dispatched a fitter-looking ****ell with far more accurate and economical punches than Rocky delivered.
Besides, I was referring to the finish, since finishing is what we are talking about. Turpin wrecked ****ell in the eleventh round.
