    I'd say what boxer would take a dive in a unification fight.... But.... The jab hit his elbow before it hit his body... It definitely invites questions and claims of taking a dive

    If you're nodding off like that there is something wrong. It's safe to say he had no more to give and exerted himself past his limit. Dont talk about how hard a punch lands or didnt land. Once severe fatigue sets in people are severely vulnerable. Our organs dictate our condition. If the organ cant stand up to the punch ; that it! Its ovah! Doesnt matter if it's a glancing blow or not. If he is that weak that pressure is more likely to effect his diaphragm. If you are about to pass out in your corner you have NOTHING left.

    If he took a dive, then why the **** would he choose to get KO´d by a body jab?
    Why not quit in the 6th when he got legit knocked down and was hurt?
    Why even put of such a plucki effort at all?

    Whatever happened, it looked like he was gasping for air while laying on the canvas.

    Just look at him. There was clearly something wrong with him. That jab hit the right spot.

    Everything has to be a conspiracy. It is all a fix. Absolute corruption from A to Z.
    This is how many vocal boxing fans see this sport as.

    I said it invites questions and gives ammo fir anyone wanting to say he took a dive.... Not to mention the amateur theatrics on the floor after made it looks worse... I don't think he did take a dive cos that would be ****in stupid... But that doesn't look like a remotely hard jab and it hit his elbow first.. What's his body made out of.... Wicker?

    No.

    I think he was out of it after the sixth round, when he had his senses separated by the hook to the temple and the follow up right hand. He also took a clean right to the head near the end of the seventh that clearly rattled him.

    Between being hurt by those punches, and seemingly mentally exhausted from the effort of trying to keep pace with Charlo in the biggest fight of his life, it wasn't going to take much to get him out of there from that point forward. The next clean punch he wasn't prepared to take probably would have dropped him for the count, regardless of how it was delivered and where it landed.

    It's a little weird, for sure...

    But, if he's already badly hurt, it won't take much to put him away. If he instinctively relaxes after the jab skids off the elbow, and the punch ends up in his solar plexus anyway, that might have been enough to short-circuit his body since Rosario wasn't expecting to take the impact of the punch anywhere but the arms.

    No, he didn't take a dive.

    Charlo is a strong puncher, and Rosario was already badly hurt from an accumulation of punches some time before he hit the canvas.

    You ever had someone shut off your lungs with a body shot? Well that´s what it looks like. You are gasping for air but can´t get a breath in.
    Normally guys crumple up like say Donaire did vs Inoue. Donaire did his best to stay up but it´s natural to turn away and curl into a ball.
    Only Rosario was on his back and that´s why it looked so goofy.

    It´s like saying Jermain Taylor faked the KO vs Abraham because of the way he was holding his arm out.

    If he took a dive then he should have stayed down in round 6 when he got his bell rung.
