    Yep, totally agree. That's why the 3 knockdown rule is ****. Barkley could have continued without a doubt and would have made it to the end of the round, ready to come out hard for the second. I actually think he would have won as well.

    I'm really enjoying Holyfield vs Parkey.

    Sahaprom vs Konadu is a better short fight IMO.

    This is the fight that made me a Cotto fan. Fantastic fight.

    Is this the one where Quintana jumps out of the ring in terror?

    I think that was in round 5 ... But yes great call , man that hook that knocked Donald out was beautiful ,, MIke took a step to the left and sort of threw it from a crouch .. it's like it confused Donald as he was just caught kinda looking, not thinking Mike was in range .... It was a hell of an angle

    Here's a good one for the British 154lb title back in 2000, Wayne Alexander vs Paul Samuels both big punchers and both with suspect chins :

    Rewatched this a couple of nights ago.

    What a great fight with the momentum swings, constant action and some superb body work by both guys.
