    I just watched the knockdown and knockout again. When Galahad is taken back to the corner after the knockdown, Ingle says get a cold towel on top of his head now and Galahad says "Yeah". When Ingle asks if Galahad is listening, Galahad just stares and doesn't say anything.

    Yeah you could argue it was poor from ingle allowing galahad to go back out as he gave him nothing back sitting on that stool.

    Shades of Brook Golovkin then because Ingle did the same thing with the towel on the head and sent him back out with a broken eye socket.

    Bellew saying that Warrington is a bigger puncher than kiko is laughably biased and beyond ****ing stupid.

    Very bleak times for the Ingle Gym. All their fighters do is lose.

    I noticed ingle turn his back at the knockout, looked more pissed at galahad than concerned for him lol

    Cant really blame ingle tbh. First one was a bad knockdown but the bell went almost immediately to give galahad the minute break. Cant imagine any fighter/trainer giving up the world title without having the chance to go out for the next round especially that barry can fight well on the backfoot and was winning the fight.

    No it's not a disaster but it's another dent in the Matchroom machine, Hearn loves putting on these shows and spouting his usual "it's got 3 world titles on the line, monster card, best I've ever done"

    Then we see its two women's world title fights and somebody like Galahad..

    So he lost two world champions tonight, it's not a good look.

    Yeah I get that but another example was Garcia losing which was called a disaster yet in that loss they gained a Spanish champion to work with.

    I see why some like to think he must be devastated (I doubt it) but ultimately this is what fans want isn't it?

    Just watched it again. I noticed that when Galahad was flat on his back from the KO that Ingles initial reaction was to turn his back. He almost had the look and body language of disgust. It took a few seconds for him to move back to the corner for acknowledgement.

    EDIT: my bad. this has already been mentioned.

    It's what we want but Hearn never set out with the intention to give us it.

    Hearn dragged over an old, smaller fighter, who had seen much better days and got caught out.
