And I hated it! I was playing as JMM against an avoided online fighter with an impressive resume that told me the top ten were all ducking him. I was dominating for 8 rounds, but for some reason my damage was almost full after 4 even though I was clearly landing more, so I had to use most of my points to maintain damage to avoid a TKO. Anyways I knocked him down about 3 times, and dominated the majority of the fight, but he was in every round, andwas wearing me down. I usually never have stamina problems, but having to use almost every point on damage controll drained me. So I decide to move and jab for the last two rounds. Anyways with 40 seconds left in the last round I have literally zero health and stamina, the guy catches me and I go down, and I beat the count at 9. With 20 seconds left my feet seem to freeze, and I can not get away He traps me in a corner, and just keeps throwing, some land, some don't. I get in stunned mode again with less than 4 seconds left, and the ****ing referre jumps in and stops the fight! I lost by TKO, and when i checked the scorecards I had won every round except the last two. ****!

haha @ jermain taylor moment!!

I've had some truly amazing battles online, too many to count. Sure, everyone complains about body spammers etc. but once you're in the top 100 or so and you fight guys around the same record as you etc most of them have skills, so it turns out to be either great wars or great tactical matches.

A handful of my victories were come from behind last round KO's. Those are the most rewarding, losing round after round but staying persistent, putting in work, slowly tearing the guy down and then going for it all and scoring that final KO shot. I'll often find myself pacing in my living room, talking to nobody about how tight I am, haha

It was depressing man. I got caught with some good shots early, and got cut and swollen in the first few rounds, so I had to keep the damage down neglecting my stamina. The thing was rounds 3-8 were were clinics with me side steppting, rolling shots, bobbing and weaving, and countering. I honestly have little idea how my stamina got ****ed like that.

How dare you disrespect the great Jermain Taylor...


I've done worse...I had Pernell and was outboxing the **** outta Gatti(RIP) and in round 10 or 11 I was exhausted and he caught my ass and I went down and couldn't get up...

So I went and got SRL and finished Gatti in 6...

Lmao thats happened to me, I also had an audley Harrison moment, where my fighter refused to throw punches, although that may have been down to a dodgy analogue stick!
