Default Besides Steele, which other ref in history would have stopped Chavez/Taylor?

Besides Steele, which other ref would have stopped this fight?

2 secs left in the last round and he stops it when Taylor beat the count and would have won an SD. What a disgrace.

Robbed the kid of such an important victory and even more so, ruined his life.

Is it not true?

He got up at the count of 6, was fine and only looked away because Duva climbed onto the apron.

After this fight, Taylor was NEVER the same again. Went up in weight but never fought like an elite fighter ever again. This decision completely destroyed him.

Steele's decision was God Awful. It was highway robbery.

The ref was correct. He followed the protocol as he should have. Any competent ref should have done the same.

People need to let it go and stop crying about it now.

It wasn't the decision which ruined Taylor, it was the beating he took.

Yeah, he lost the damn fight. This is an emotional topic where people inevitably start slinging mud on both fighters depending on which side they take and it's a fine line to walk. I don't think there are too many things more amusing or ironic than having a favorite fighter(s) and proceeding to shit on some of the best fighters he beat. That's an indirect downgrade.... There's a very obvious, very recent example of this but temptation to sling vitriol at fan base is very high.

any other ref would of called a DQ due to Duva being on the apron.

It was the decision that destroyed him? I beg to differ, Taylor had busted ribs, a fractured orbital bone, and was pissing blood. A Decision doesn't have that affect, that was Chavez punches that destroyed Taylor.
