    You must know that's not true. Literally no one but you gave Williams as few as 3 rounds.

    Each round was hard fought though. I like that fight. The judges gave Williams 4 rounds.

    Two of them did. The other gave him 6 rounds. Which takes us back to the fact that no one but you gave him 3 rounds.

    You ruined my trap regarding the three rounds!!!!!!!!!!! It's OK though, evidently he was to cowardly to address it anyways so it wouldn't have went anywhere.

    True, some refs let things go on far too long. See Pac vs cotto or practically any badou jack fight.

    However, sometimes it doesn't matter how lenient the ref is. The body can only take so much. And Liston is possibly the last person on earth you want just unloading flush bombs round after round on an opponent, his fists made poor Wepner require something like 60 stitches.

    I agree with the consensus. Cobb takes too much punishment for his own good in this fight. This likely results in a stoppage at some point

    While I agree Holmes beat up Tex. It was Tex that asked referee Steve Crosson for. 3 more rounds. If he could he promised to KO Larry. He said Larry cant hit me no more his hands hurt him too much. steve verified this when I met him at some black tie fights in Dallas. it was also verified by Tex's wife when Larry banged on there hotel door next morning asking her to " Please cut my eggies up my hands wont work '' lol

    The fight was not a robbery. And That’s clear. Terrell worked harder. Landed more punches overall. He won. But each round was rough and hard fought. I give you that.

    *sigh*

    Nobody said it was a robbery. The person making false claims about the scoring is you.

    The false claim is from those who believe Williams was anything more than a Terrell level fighter in the “All Time” scheme of things. And He barely was.

    I checked. Most people that voted for Terrell gave Williams 4 rounds. So I was wrong. I gave him 3. So I was the only one. Most thought Terrell won. So I guess 4 for Williams or less is about right.

    Since most thought Terrell won, what’s wrong in saying the majority of people gave Williams no more than 4-3 rounds?

    I was gonna wait for him to redirect me to his Williams-Terrell scorecard thread as his evidence, then use that to show him literally not one person gave Williams as few as three rounds (except Chok himself), but you ****ers ruined my trap!

    One round less than two of the official judges voted? Hardly a crime.

    Exactly. Little wonder people come down so hard on you. You always err things to your own personal agenda/slant i.e. there's not a chance on earth you'd say most gave him 5 to 6 rounds, or even 6-7. Little wonder people get irate dude.
