As I recall, the only part of Larry's body which touched the canvas against Butterbean were his feet. Basically, the wind from a missed hook by Esch sent Holmes stumbling backwards into a corner, and the asinine referee administered a standing eight count which Holmes was laughing at, the idiot ref's ruling being such a ridiculous call. In later interviews, Beanfart described Holmes as being "flat on his back," apparently forgetting that cameras were recording the action. If Beanfart is going to make up lies like that, then he should make sure no cameras are present. (And if he genuinely believes he punched Larry down on his back, then Esch should be given psychiatric care for learning to discriminate between fantasy and reality.)

Beanfart certainly is a fraud by most people's standards. I can't even believe that Beanfart could even qualify for a license as a professional fighter.

Are you sure Weaver knocked him down? I don't remember that.

Do you think Beanfart might qualify as a challenger to Tsunami Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut in next year's Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest?

That Shavers Knockdown, shit i thought Larry was killed, didnt even dream that he'd get up. Now watch Butterbeans "knockdown" and Shavers, you an clearly see a difference

Think it was one of those Morrison-Ruddock type punches...the impact when they hit the mat wakes 'em up! Holmes goes down like he's been shot.
