Default Quitting In Fights

Who made a career out of it?

Bert Cooper flat out sat down during the count sometimes, just giving up. Think he did that against Bowe.

Flat out turned his back after rising from a knockdown against Sanders after kicking the shit out of him in round two.

God damn it Cooper was frustrating.

Golota quit numerous times, as well.

Phaintin' Phil Scott, who made a career of sitting on the canvas and crying foul.

Cooper had him against the ropes and was hitting his body HARD.

Nasty uppercuts to. Then he just quit.

I'll have to look at the fight again, because I can't recall Sanders being in any distress. I could be wrong though (memory is such a fallible thing) so I'll get back to you on this.

i used to have that dvd of his sanders fight, i hate to say it but it did look like he said he had enough, he gained like 20 pounds between then and his last fight b4 that one, so he totally just showed up w/o training, he could beat sanders easily if he trained for it, cooper could beat almost anybody if he took his career seriously, he just went in there expecting to land something big and thats why he lost, but i'm confused on that gesture he does when he raises his arm, he's did it before when he fought zolkin and he said after the fight that it meant "He did me no harm" like as in he wasn't hurt by the flurry he got nailed with, its more like to say you didn't hurt me, against bowe tho he got rocked hard and was definitely hurt, he was layin on the mat holding his head like he got rattled

Joe Grimm. One good shot and he'd just call it a day.

Buster Douglas. Quit against Tony Tucker when he was ahead, to the great chagrin of his father.

IMO he put in a sub-par and unmotivated performance in almost all of his important bouts except for that one night in Tokyo against some guy called Tyson.

Hmm, that's another one for the 'myths' thread sometime - it's always said that Douglas quit when he was ahead against Tucker.

In actual fact he was up on one card, down on another, and it was all-square on the third. A dead level fight.

Hilmer Kenty quit against Roberto Elizondo, probably the end of his career right there.
