    The thing that really annoyed me was putting his adult son on blast in front of everybody and talking to him like he was a kid in need of discipline and punishment. That was ridiculous.

    He's a vomit. Hopefully Porter never speaks to him again, and shuts him out of his life. That post fight interview was unforgivable.

    I think Kenny Porter needs to see a Sports Psychiatrist. Seriously.

    Shawn needs to see a psychologist also if he's willing to just take that from his dad and have breakfast with him tomorrow morning like what he said was no big deal.

    If my pops would have done that, you better believe once we get home were going go a few rounds with the gloves and no headgear.

    That fight needed to reach its organic conclusion. Imagine a female saying stop 5 seconds before climax. I actually wanted to see if Crawford could stop him legitimately. Now, it is a political stoppage.

    NDam was hurt worse in the first round and was still eating leather until the ref's merciful intervention.

    No, he was very hurt.

    Wobbled and on shaky legs.

    Of course he could have continued, but with the amount of time left he was headed for more KDs and / or more brutal stoppage.

    The towel was a fair call.

    However, Shawn should have slapped the old man when he started disrespecting him in front of the millions watching. He should fire Ken if he want to stay in the fight game.

    I'd love to hear Kovalev's opinion on the matter. I think we all know what his answer would be.:sisi1

    Porter was poker face but he was hurt real bad. I can see after he slammed the ring floor.He paused for a second and felt badly concussed but summon all he had to get back up. Even when he was up you can see his legs were shaky as he was walked back to his corner. I agree!

    Shawn: "But Dad, I was going to take the Mrs. out to breakfast and have an all day-da-"

    Kenny: "NOT WITH MY MONEY YOU'RE NOT!"

    Set aside whether you think the stoppage was good or bad. In this case, it's almost secondary. The real issue was what he said. He threw his boy under the bus, that it was all Shawn't fault they were in this position, and if he had listened to Kenny they'd have won. He, Kenny Porter, is a genius, and the sole reason for Shawn's success, the ungrateful corn-headed cornball. Did him dirty in front of the world, when he knew that was the last night of his son's career. When people go back to review Shawn's career, the last thing they'll see is Shawn's own father telling the world his son was a lazy P.O.S.

    That's the kind of **** that takes years to forgive. If ever.
