    common thing.

    yeah and sometimes guy is pretty fresh, just bleeding is not stopped completely and TKO gets declared.

    Whyte? He get concussion, really looked completely switched off considerably longer more than 20 seconds.

    I guess on paper it's laughable because somebody who knows nothing about the sport , just going by the records, wouldn't be able to tell the difference between Povetkin TKOing Whyte and AJ TKOing Takam, it is quite laughable really

    stfu noob.

    The correct term is a Technical Count Out. See 3.33.3 of the British Boxing Board Of Control's Rules Of Boxing.

    Because it is better for the safety of the fighters if the referee just waves it when there is no chance of them being ok to continue.

    Tko’s and ko's both get defined as knockouts when your record gets talked about, a victory inside the distance goes down as a knockout, it’s only when it’s written down that they differentiate between the two, but it doesn’t really matter, especially with a knockout like that when ever they bring up that fight that punch will be spoke about and remembered.
    The worse problem is when premature stoppages get put down as a tko and that’s easier to get forgotten
