For me, you have to rip the belt from the champion. Not stop him on his feet with 3 seconds to go in the round with his head totally clear. THATS ROBBERY!

Honestly some people are full of ****!
No, you just have to beat him in line with the rules. The champion doesn't get special dispensation because he has a belt. Go read the rules of boxing before starting in with such biased ****.

Because when you get hit by a hard shot, it snaps your head back and you temporarily lose control of your senses, meaning that you wobble unsteadily, your eyes roll back and you're unable at that moment to protect yourself by covering up as you're trying to gather your senses.

Crolla was moving back with his gloves up attempting to defend himself in an intelligent fashion and his legs seemed fine, he had been wobbled by a shot about a minute before that he seemed to have recovered from when the referee stopped it. He did nothing to suggest that he needed to be saved and demonstrated no body language which would make me think he was in particular trouble.

No one in the world but Crolla can truly know how he felt at the exact time of the stoppage but as we all watch a lot of fights I think we can express an opinion on whether he was hurt or not based on the evidence in front of us. And my opinion is that he should have been allowed to continue.
