Good call pal, I agree there was no cowardice involved but Duran was looking for a way out and he embarrassed his fans big time, as well as ripping them off out of they're hard earned money.

It did look a bit iffy,but he should never have been fighting at middle.

Yeah, in a way it was a cowardly move from Hopkins in the first place dragging Oscar up to middleweight, especially after his awful performance v eurobum Sturm.

Don't know about that,but the way he hit him right in the tummy just because he wanted to get home was way out of line.

Hopkins didn't feign a shoulder injury. He dislocated his shoulder and produced a doctor's discharge letter as proof. Nor did he feign a low blow against Calzaghe. He was hit low and the replay clearly showed it. Why let the facts get in the way of a cool story though, right bro?

Bad Glass Jawson against Ward. He is a Glass Jawed quitter in the same mould as Quitter Ortiz.

The way Amir Khan quit against Garcia was almost as disgraceful as Hatton quitting against Pacquaio.

Dariusz Michalczewski feigning injury to get his opponent DQd was one of the most disgusting acts ever seen in a ring

Kostya Tsyzu quitting against Hatton rather than face the final round deserves a mention
