    Perfect trajectory and power landed right in the refs hand.

    Was it the right decision?

    Arc was a little shallow for my tastes, towel perhaps a little too fresh but I’m nit picking. It was a solid chuck.

    Yes it was the right decision. Wood would have got seriously hurt if it carried on.

    Completely wrong decision. Wood was starting to control the fight and got a bit lazy and got tagged. It happens. He responded well enough after getting back up and the referee was happy for it to continue. Silly stoppage from Davison

    I thought it was a good save. Woods didn’t look great.I would sooner see the towel in than Woods ironed flat surrounded by paramedics.

    He had to find a way of making it all about himself and did so fantastically.

    Gutted for Wood. I can't believe he threw the towel in with 10 seconds left.

    10 bloody seconds.

    Very accurate throw from the corner and saved his man from a career damaging punch or two in my opinion.

    He would have recovered fine… Blokes an idiot, Wood kept his cool in the aftermath .. however looked raging with Davison … he said to another corner assistant “Why the **** did he stop the fight”…. Davison didn’t stop the Conlon fight did he??….. All about him…. Wood needs to get rid after that disgrace

    Also the way it was going I think there was still a very high chance after a minutes rest Wood went on to win that …. Worst case they would have been level on energy levels and will to win…. Lara was flagging and hurt to the body… and confidence was low …. I felt angry **** knows how Wood feels about it… Davison is a **** and is in it for what he can get hiding behind a nice guy persona

    I'm with you on that he needs to bin Davison and so should every world class fighter.

    Such a cautious trainer.

    Would the ref of ordered Lara back to the neutral corner as he was now stood directly behind him. Had the ref ordered lara back, that'd take up the 10 secs, Davison could then assess tye damage in the 1 min rest.
