"I did not see that he was down" "He's a good actor, he's a good actor." said Abraham



“They didn’t ask how he was – just if he’d taken a drug test,” said Shaw. “Andre is severely hurt. Is it more important in your country that you p--- in a cup than get your head taken care of?”


There's some real bad blood between these two and no doubt there will be fireworks if they meet up again.

To be honest I was getting bored with all this touchy feely gloves, every second, thing we've been seeing of late - it looks like we've got ourselves a good old grudge match.

i've watched this several times now, sl;ept on it then watched it several more times.

To me it was a clear DQ considering that Dirrell couldn't get back up....

However I do feel Dirrell was NO WHERE NEAR as hurt as he was making out and could have easily made it up.

Abraham can have no complaints though

I think the doctors were cut men for AA as all they did was take as long as they could to stop the bleeding. It's the doctors who are killing the sport.

I just saw a replay of the missed KD of Abraham in the 7th and after watching it a couple of times (admitadely on the only available angle) I think the ref made the right decision it wasn't a punch it was a swing and AD's forearm that pushed into Arthur's neck and pushed him off balance.

Remember when Honeyghan punched the chap whilst he was still on his stool or something.

Was it Johnny Bumphus? I believe the bell rang to start the round and Honeyghan charged over and hit him.
He was just about off his stool, but forgot about the "Defend yourself at all times" instruction.

Although it was legit (IMO), it was a bit cheeky. After that, and ever since then, referees keep fighters apart at the start of the round until they are both ready.

Agree

I screwed up and downloaded a german version so I had no idea what was going on !

It didn't ring true to me at all though

He shook his head, put his hand up, then fell over. And after the fight he was touching his head in the wrong spot. Since when do boxers hold their heads in pain anyway?

However like the Mitchell KO the other week, you can't be sure either way

But for mine he looked like he was acting

The one thing that puzzled me was the fact he shook his head pretty hard afterward. Someone who gets knocked out (I have been KO'd twice) does not shake there head afterward. You feel like your head is gonna explode, you just wanna keep it still

Yeah he looked up and shook his head, almost in disgust. Rang alarm bells to me too.

You just can't 100% say how someone will react to a bang though so it's hard to be sure...

Yeah I mean i'm not condoning that AA was wrong (Even though it seemed to be a shot out of frustration).
