    I REALLY feel like bypassing the word filter and stating my ill feelings toward this disgusting robbery.

    Screw the main event, I am legit outraged at this BS. Soto was gassed out, missing like a drunk. He's trash and he's gonna get his comeuppance as soon as he fights someone who is not 37 years old and 5 years out of the ring.

    Screw this.

    The worst referee in history makes the worst stoppage in history !

    Texas is a boxing disgrace.

    The fact that that moron Cole , after all his shenanigans and incompetence, still has a job, makes Texas a boxing backwater.

    Fighters should just refuse to fight in the state.

    He was taking a lot of shots. “One of the worst stoppages I’ve seen in a while” is an absurd statement. I see worst stoppages on every UK card I watch.

    If you want a perfect summation of how messed up boxing is just take a look at this card.

    Fight 1: Quit job
    Fight 2: A judge giving 7 rounds to Conway
    Fight 3: Fight stopped for no reason

    The biggest event this year for boxing, and not one fight free of bs.

    There was nothing compassionate about that stoppage, preventing a veteran champion making his last stand from having a chance at the victory!

    I had Soto ahead but Takayama landing these short body shots inbetween the wide shots by Soto inside along with the fast pace he set were definitely troubling Soto and I would have liked to see how this would have played out

    I can't see how BJS can win this unless he KO's Canelo.. based on judging and ref. I am still picking Canelo.. but.. let's be honest here.. BJS really has it all to do to get the nod here.

    No, it'll be Mark Calo-oy.

    Good ref. He appropriately deducted points from Jaime Munguía (versus Spike O'Sullivan) and Tevin Farmer (versus Guillame Frenois) after giving them fair warnings for low blows first.

    This has been an atrociously reffed card. The Long Count in the previous bout and now this BS stoppage.

    Bad stoppage. I hope they give BJS a better chance than that
