    Come on people. Watch the finish again! The stoppage was correct. Vargas was gonna be knocked out before the ref jumped in. You people seriously gonna argue that was not gonna happen. He was buzzed and taking clean shots!

    Referee stopped that far too early.

    Re watching it now and Vargas should have been given more time, even though he wasn’t firing back. He wasn’t out on his feet.

    Also robbed the fans of seeing a knockout- as Benn was about to potentially land the knockout

    Fair play. He'll be even more unbearable than Shannon now though.

    I don't think it was that bad. At least Benn was landing with power shots unlike Calzaghe against Manfredo.

    You know what you need to do now right Eddie? Clearly Conor is much better than Vergil Ortiz Jr. Feed him to Benn. No need to wait..... Make the fight.:naughty2::devil-flip:

    Said it before but the level of improvements Benn is making is remarkable.

    He looks like a totally different fighter.

    Why not giving a standing 8-count

    Benn looked very quick, very sharp, take nothing away from him there, accurate too.

    But Ill say this, if Benn was on the other end of those punches, the referee would NEVER have jumped in, NEVER.

    Not sure if this will upset some mods but I'm not really interested in watching this but would like to know if anyone knows what channel this is on the radio?

    Too many unanswered shots landing. Should have defo took a knee to put a pause to the onslaught. Had the ref not jumped in then Vargas was probably willing to take another 10 heavy blows before thinking of going down
