Its so annying. I get that we have to save the fighters. But all the greatests fights in history only happened because the ref showed some leniancy.

Kirkland was getting up straight away from that knockdown when cortez jumped on him.

It was funny,
I, for one, think that calling the stoppage "terrible" is going to far. The guy was knocked down thrice within two minutes and didn't seem to be all there. You could say it was a bit too soon, but there was 1.24 to go on the clock and he didn't look like he would make it to the bell. Cortez saved him from a potentially massive beating.

It was such an upset that they didnt have a translator on hand to interview Ishida after the fight. The commentators called him by the wrong name many times before during and after the fight. This just goes to show you on any given day you can be beaten and never underestimate you opponent (^^)

How does lanky, scrawny, happy and asian beat compact, muscular, powerful, angry, and black? Please tell us, because Kirkland would like to know as well!

Honestly, I don't even think Kirkland could win a rematch. Ishida has a granite jaw and can actually fight as we've seen against Pirog and Williams. Kirkland has a china chin and WOULD get tagged again.

Oh, I have no doubt Ishida would spark Kirkland out again, in pretty much the same fashion. . . They could fight at 154, or 175, whatever. . Ishida step-back counter punches him to death. . .

The funny thing is I actually like kirkland but it was just so funny, when he got dropped all three times he got up like did I just get dropped by ishida?!?!?! Ishida was so happy lol i dont think i've ever seen a fighter so blissful or make such a happy smile for the 'tale of the tape' it was just so bizzare

I think he stopped it kind of early.. You can make the argument that he was looking bad and dropped by a very light hitter multiple times in a short period... But he also tried to get right back up and possibly could have survived the round. I'm glad he was given the chance in the Angulo fight to continue on, and I have to think the same could have been possible in this fight.

Either way, nothing clear enough to say a bad stoppage or he would have survived to win. **** happens, it's boxing!

He didn't take Angulo's bomb, the first one put him on his ass. Then Angulo gassed out going for the finish, unlike Ishida who didn't get wild but stuck to his style and beat that ass.

Ishida is awesome.

Also, is that Donaire who shakes his hand after the fight? (At 5:06)
