Holmes was basically landing in the 75% range and Cobb just eating it and walking forward with no success, it was terrible, makes boxing look bad.

Should have been stopped about round 8, but it went on 5 more rounds.

i couldnt imagine a worse beaten then the one gomez gave him, his lip was sliced in half and he just collapsed to the canvas painful to watch, alot of his fights in which he was battered to the point of death have been removed off youtube. i guess people want to honour him and remember him as the fighter who gave us all those exciting brawls against journeymen

Muhammad Ali vs Ernie Terrell was Ali at his sadistic best. He could have ended the fight when ever he wanted but continued to punish Terrell for the full 15 rounds. One of my favorite fights.

Vitali over Kirk Johnson was a beatdown. KJ was literally beaten down and crumpled into the canvas in less than 2 rnds.
KJ's career never recovered.

I saw the fight live and heard Howard's rant and wasn't that sorry to see him leave.

While the fight was very one-sided and I believe Holmes won every round, most of them very decisively, Cobb was never close to being stopped. He had one of the best (maybe THE best) chins in the sport.

That night he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'.

He joked later that he was trying to wear out Larry's fists. He figured if the fight had gone another twenty rounds, he would have got him.
