And the commentators, betting agencies, boxrec, everyone on these forums and the rest of the media were confused also? Isn't it easy to be confused when the announcer said the fight was scheduled for 12 rounds? Isn't it incredibly amateur that anyone is confused in such a situation?

Botha can easily argue he went easy in the opening rounds because he was conserving energy for the later rounds. This is a straightforward thing and there should be no confusion.

Botha deserves a rematch for sure. The problem is that SBW won't be free to fight again until at least November.
