    His head was too straight as he punched so he got caught flush, wide open to counters, he hasn`t been very well schooled.

    Outstanding champagne-quality post, Uncle.

    As my great-grandfather used to say, "once they crack, they don't come back."

    GLASS JAWS do exist in BOXING. It's irrefutable.

    Just to balance things out, that Popov is also outstanding. No shame in getting chinned by a man of that calibre.

    Cracking punch, lightning fast hands. Had to watch it a few times to see what landed.

    Combination punching with your chin in the air isn’t a great idea when your opponent has his feet set and is looking to land a bomb.

    He's also only had 2 KOs according to boxrec from roughly 50 fights on there, so it doesn't bode too well from that perspective.

    Hassan Azim did look quite badly hurt also, even walking to the ref afterwards he didn't look great.

    In a professional bout he would have been allowed to continue then properly KTFO.

    Yeah Popov is a very skilled talented boxer, but not known for power or knockouts.

    Plus it's with headgear. Azim seems to be packing glass for sure. Not a good look for his pro career
