Leonard-Benitez was a bit naff, as was Duran-Marcel.

I also think the ref screwed Ayub Kalule a bit against Leonard in 1981....... The ****ing bell sounded after 9 heated rds when Kalule was dropped, and I think the tired and hurt Kalule may have recovered during the break....... Kalule was in-shape.......

MR.BILL
If you watch it, Kalule says he doesn't want anymore. After the fight he said he had no idea they were that close to the bell

That's the first fight that came to my head too. Though all it did really was save time.

Johanson vs Machen is absolutely horrific.

I don't agree. That wasn't a bad stoppage at all. Lewis was still wobbly when he got up, his legs looked gone to me. It's not like Tyson-Ruddock 1 where Ruddock was hurt but clearly had his legs.

Worst Non-stoppage has to be Gabriel Ruelas-Jimmy Garcia. Garcia was taking a battering, if not the ref. his corner should have been compassionate enough to stop it...

Williams did not look the ref in the eyes and he did not respond to his questions. It was his own fault for the stoppage.

Ruddock vs Dokes is pretty bad seeing as the ref is staring at a lifeless dokes while ruddock lines up another shot

I usually agree with "premature" stoppages, because even if the fighter is perfectly capable of continuing, the ref only stops it when they are being systematically beaten up with no realistic chance of turning it around (Calzaghe-Manfredo and Roy Jones-Clinton Woods).

I suppose a rough stoppage would be Leonard-Benitez. Even though Benitez had no chance of winning, I think a warrior would have wanted to see that one through to the bell, I bet he felt disappointed inside. He was being beaten, but he was not being seriously hurt or embarrassed I don't think.

The first Chavez-Taylor fight was pretty controversial and it was a horrible stoppage, IMO. If the referee didn't stop it, Taylor would've won. There was like.. what? 2-4 seconds left? Chavez couldn't have done anymore damage.
