    It's not that late considering that Martinez didn't know that the knee was down. Maybe I was being a bit overzealous but Martinez was just battering him, the ref could have easily stopped that before as Edwards was showing absolutely nothing.

    “His style works perfectly for me, it plays into my hands,” said Edwards. “He’s already told me that he’s going to knock me out. But when he doesn’t, things are going to get very tough for him and if he’s coming in with that mentality it shows he’s underrating me already and that’s not a good place to be.”

    In hindsight looks a bigger fool with those comments.

    Exactly it was settled and I also just want to add that he should not ignore this and needs to query it with PP customer services, because I honestly don’t know the answer to this but that £230 could be classed as debt and come back to bite him on the ass down the line.

    Yeah you're probably right, maybe my dislike of him is getting too much! Bloke at the moment today was looking at his Insta in horror, I need to stop looking myself!

    Those were 3 brutal rounds though. First not that bad, second quite bad, 3rd quite brutal.

    There's no way he wins the rematch if it ever takes place.

    It being settled means nothing, do you think if a bet is settled in error they just say oh we've settled there's nothing we can do, this is in effect what has happened here. I spoke to someone yesterday quite high up at PP and he said that according to their betting rules they state 'official result published by the official governing body immediately or in a timely manner after the event is finished' and that's what they will go by in this instance.

    Of course I'm on the punter's side here I had a bet myself but the bookies really have so many T&C's to hide behind it's unreal and if most people who had an online account read the extent to which they cover their ar**s they would NEVER use their account again.

    As I say I hope the man gets to keep his money but I think most if not all will agree the one result this wasn't was a Martinez win, a NC at a push but should've been a DQ surely.

    Second line of their boxing rules reads 'Results are not official for betting purposes until verified by officials at the fighting venue', they will hide behind the fact that MS did not verify the Martinez win but declared it a NC.

    Ah I like the WWE style of someone grabbing the mic and just making it up personally

    Absolutely no way Edwards takes the rematch, he'll vacate and hang around at the next weight waiting for an easy title shot. Yafai would be an easy one to make and there's beef there but I think Edwards would lose that. Ioka is the other current belt holder Edwards would probably fancy his chances against, Estrada and Ancajas would destroy him. Either he waits until they vacate and an easier shot at a title can be made or he cashes out with a fight against Yafai, waiting as long as he possibly can before taking it to try and face a fighter on the decline.

    Them two things aren't linked. Just because Martinez doesn't know he's down (which is rubbish, because Edwards is still and his head is below Martinez' groin), doesn't have any bearing on timing. Edwards takes a knee, Martinez pauses, steps to the side, and lets another punch go. Bit like one of the fights in Creed II.

    No one is denying that Martinez was hurting Charlie and had gone well on top. I thought Edwards was boxing well in spurts but it became very clear he didn't have the power to hold off Martinez and essentially would have been marched down even if that ending hadn't happened. It doesn't change that it's an illegal punch and the fight should be a no-contest if you believe it was accidental, or a disqualification if not.

    It's very clear that Edward's will also move up now.

    Still again, his lack of awareness when posting that is staggering. Some people really have a warped outlook on themselves.

    Looking forward to the rematch

    Some refs around the world would’ve stopped the fight before the actual stoppage
