There should have been a criminal investigation in that fight. Those rabbit punches were what did McLellan in. The guy is basically a vegetable now and Benn got away with it.

I bet if Benn never threw a rabbit punch they`d all say he should`ve been stopped in the first rd.They`d say anything to take the gloss off a good British fighter,except Lennox Lewis who was trained by american Manny Steward.

I

The shots to the back of the head don't cause the damage. It's the shots that cause cranial acceleration.

How do you work that out? Benn got back in the ring and beat the count of 10. It wasn't a slow count and he was fit to continue.

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