OK, thanks.

He still won't get past Alexander, but impressive nonetheless.

It wasn't that kind of KO where it's worth posting the very end by itself as though it were highlight-reel worthy.

So, stupid move by Tomato Can and even more stupid for anyone else to give an uninformed opinion on the merits of the TKO.

Not ONE person watching the fight live claimed it was even remotely premature. It made perfect sense if you'd been seeing the events play out from the beginning to the end. There was not a single "boo" or "harumph" from the Ukrainians in the crowd, who were mostly just concerned for the well-being of their hometown hero.

It was VERY NEARLY stopped after the conclusion of the 8th, as they had a long close look at the cuts & swelling on Senchenko's face. Smoger wanted to stop it right then and there, but had to defer to the doctor (probably a Ukrainian) who gave Senchenko another chance to go out there. Once he went out there, Malignaggi resumed whipping him and targeting his sundered flesh - ultimately leaving SS no choice.



Now, this surprises me. You're usually pretty solid in appraising the action.

How was it early? Malignaggi had already completely spoiled Senchenko's vanilla style of conventional orthodox boxing. Senchenko had already thrown his game plan out the window and started chucking desperate bombs. That didn't work, and he kept getting zapped with fast counter punches he couldn't see coming (and he wasn't even seeing them before his eyes swole up) and having his grill flayed off.

He was backing up and started to drop his hands with a defeated facial expression & body language, and Malignaggi kept opening up on him with increasingly faster and harder shots. Smoger absolutely made the RIGHT call, and waiting any longer would have not only been the wrong call but would have severely jeopardized Senchenko's health.

Not every stoppage has to be "to save a guy from getting KTFO cold". Prolonged one-sided accumulations can be just as bad as one punch rendering someone unconscious.

This was a clean TKO, and not a moment too soon.
Finally saw it. The eye was pretty bad and Senchenko couldn't defend it. Paulie targeted the eye and the last 'pop' was as far as Smoger was willing to let it go. What Smoger saw as a guy that couldn't defend an already badly damaged area and had already decided the next blow to that area was the end of the fight, that is why it looked premature in some respects I guess.

Paulie is not just a kid taken out of that bunch of italian americans with greasy hairs from Jersey shore. This is a former LW Champion who proved toughness gainst Cotto at 140 pounds, rumbled with the very best out there and he's simply a slick, composed and above-average fighter. Congrats Paulie.

We like to make fun of him because of his antics, but your assessment of him as a fighter is on the money.
