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?

At the end of the day the ref should be at fault for letting the fouls go !

Just which Americans did Benn destroy,overrated G-man who never beat a world class middleweight,Doug DeWitt,or tough,but limited Barkley,who rocked Benn himself before being stopped due to the 3 knockdown rule and could have continued in the 2nd?Silly,silly fellow

Last I checked the rear parts of the brain interpret images seen through the eye and assist in motor skills. McClellan was blinking during his KD and is now blind, followed an inability to walk straight without assistance.

Jones whooped the **** out of Malinga who Benn won a UD and lost an SD over.

But you never know. Benn just might rabbit punch him to oblivion as well.

I can't re-watch that fight knowing the toll it takes on McClellan afterwards. I'm the same way with Watson v Eubank.

I struggle with those, too. Ring of Fire is the same way, if you ever get around to watching that.
