Default Just rewatched Gerald McClellan vs Nigel Benn

Probably one of the most dramatic and brutal fight I've seen. So hard to watch the rounds go by as GMan is slowly succumbing to the brain damage. I still can't believe they robbed him out of a 1st round KO. Had it been stopped in the first round I'm sure we wouldn't see GMan in the same condition as he is right now.

Oh, and the american commentary was a disgrace. Ferdie Pacheco sounded like a douche when he said that GMan "quit".

If you think he was robbed of a first round KO you haven't watched the fight.

Not taking anything away from Benn as he showed true heart but I thought he should have been counted out. That ref saved Benn's ass in the first round and wouldn't let Gman do his thing.
I also noticed the constant rabbit punches as well.

Why should he have been counted out though?

Benn took more than 10 seconds to get back in the ring through the ropes. The ref made sure that he wouldn't get KO'd.

You get more than 10 seconds if you are knocked out of the ring.

It isn't WWE

Benn made the count, but those constant hard punches behind the head piss me off every time I see this fight.

Count to 10 as soon as Benns back hits the canvas, he is on his feet after 7. If a boxer is knocked out of the ring, he gets a count of 20 to get back in and on his feet. He cannot be assisted.

I watched this fight 2 days ago actually. It was exciting but it was sad also to watch G Man get hit like that and know what it would lead to. When he took the last knee my heart really sunk.
It didn't help that he was holding his mouth piece half way out of his mouth for most of the fight. The mouthpeice wan't there to absorb the force and it didn't let him close his mouth all the way

Brutal shots by Benn to the back of the head. WTF!
