    Here is a link to a small article where Gans says he threw the fight but was double-crossed by his manager.

    I think he did. But it's by no means certain he did. It's a shame that it's the only footage we have of McGovern, other than a recreation.

    I don't believe his claims about the Jimmy Britt fight or that his loss to Frank Erne (which I've not seen him claim) was a fix.

    What are you McGoverns grandmother? Everyone knows gans took a dive. Look at the ref he was disgusted he clearly knew gans wasn’t trying watch the ref counting on film and his mannerisms

    ^^^Wait, is that back row of emoticons humping the front row? Well, let's not pay attention to that right now. That's not-let's not bother with that.

    Jesus. Every once in a while these clowns come out of the woodwork and ignore that Gans is clearly going down in that fight from punches that dont land and want us to believe that McGovern stopped him despite the fact that a bigger, stronger, harder hitting fighter like Nelson hit gans hundreds of times and couldnt.
