after this fight happened, AND we all now know the "great" extent of Meldirck Taylors inuries, you can make the argument that Richard Steele is a genius......the fractured face, stomach full of blood, possible brain damage thats very evident today.....the hospitalization......


Great video by the way!

Although I thought it was a bad stoppage, Duva screwed this up. He came out of the corner and yelled instructions at Taylor WHILE Steele was asking him if he was OK. Taylor hesitated by looking to his right, and Steele called the fight.

Does anyone know the scorecards at the time of the stoppage? Knowing Don King I wouldn't be surprised if they all favored Chavez.

Dave Moretti 107-102 | judge: Chuck Giampa 104-105 | judge: Jerry Roth 108-101

Taylor was leading on two of the cards. Right decision by Steele.

technically taylor wasn't fit to continue, and i can't think of any rule requiring the ref to take the clock into consideration when deciding whether a fighter is fit to continue, so you can make the argument that the stoppage was good

If Taylor had been allowed thos two seconds and it went to the cards, two of them would have favoured Chavez by the time they'd been read out.

He did in my book. The stoppage wasn't so bad though but I'd have probably let it go on, ready to dive in if Mel hadn't responded when the action resumed. Funny thing is though, if Meldrick had earned the nod I think all the sympathy would then lie with Chavez- and a rematch would have been imminent, probably around Sep 1990 (which Julio would have won I think).

The ref is not supposed to say, "I think you cannot fight on but theres only a few seconds and I think you deserve the win". Steele made the right call.

I remember once that fight was made the talk on who would win and why. It was a toss up between the guys I watch the fights with. We looked forward to that fight and the bets were made. Man what a fight!! Right down to the end...and all hell broke out at the guys house we were at when they stopped it!
