Could Tszyu and his team have called the fight after the 4th round?

    Well, you mix that in the Vaseline and in a deep cut like that it won’t matter. In the nose that works better to stop the blood vessels from bleeding but it’s not much else to do with deep cuts like that than stuff as much of Vaseline as possible and hope for the best.

    Man just stop, Vaseline isnt going to stop the bleeding. You need the other stuff. I’ve watch boxing for a long time and this was the bloodiest fight I can recall.

    His team literally said they were going to walk Fundora into something big. They said that was the gameplan after the cut and why they didn't call for the fight to be stopped. His own team's hubris bit them back hard

    However you cut it, Fundora shouldn't walk around thinking this was a legit victory and that he's all that- if he gives Tszyu a rematch and wins, then we'll talk. All he did was spam jabs with an occasional left hand into the face of a blind fighter.

    Tim has a lot of pride and confidence in hisself. He clearly wanted to fight on but the corner should have convinced him otherwise. I was shocked that the ring doctor didn’t stop it at some point as Tim lost a lot of blood.

    What did I just say?? Do you have reading issues?? It’s no “other stuff”, nothing that’s allowed in the corner will stop a cut like that from bleeding, it was too deep.

    Good for you that you have “watched boxing for a long time” but I actually fought myself and I been in the corner of other fighters, I know what a cutman have and how they use it. Plus I sat a few rows from Tszyu’s corner.

    In hindsight though, it was obvious in the third round that the tide switched dramatically in Fundora’s favour. His team simply had to advise Tim to tell the ref that he can’t see due to the blood, which was accurate.

    The decision to not stop has cost him his undefeated record, two world title belts, a certain amount of marketability in the US, massive paydays in his next few fights.

    It’s like having access to a multi-million-dollar lottery ticket and letting it expire. I see it as an atrocious blunder that shouldn’t be viewed any other way.

    Yep, it’s an absolute howler of a decision to let that fight continue.

    A proper stinker, the likes of which I have never seen.

    Dude shut the hell up. Your dumb ass said they can only use vasaline. Yes that is what you said. You were proven wrong. So dont give me this bull crap about how you work in corners. You are juat making yourself look dumber. So Shut the **** up. Mr “you only can use vasaline”.

    No. if Tszyu's team called it, they are the ones foreiting. The ref and ringside doctor allowed it. The corner can't all it to go to the cards.

    Honestly was worse than Badou Jack vs Marcus Browne. And the ref that night was drenched in blood.

    Haha, ok keyboard warrior, you’re a fvcking nerd that lives in your moms basement that wishes he was someone like me so know your place.

    How do you think a cut man apply Adrenalin or Vitaminerals Formula 120 Liquid Concentrate?? Do you think that those “meds” magically close a deep cut and stop the bleeding??

    If you can’t continue due to an accidental foul before the end of the fourth round I thought it went to the cards.

    If he told the doctor he can’t see due to the blood the doctor would have stopped it.

    Shut the hell up. Keyboard warrior is you. When put in your place you react to threaten me like a 12 year old. In case your forgot mr I work in corners before “the only med they can use is Vaseline”.

    Yes. If they told the doctor that, would be different story.
