Leonard - Kalule fits the bill. Kalule beat the count, but the ref stopped it a little early.

Calzaghe - Manfredo. A pretty bad stoppage. Calzaghe throws an avalanche of punches and the unhurt Manfredo fails to throw anything back.

Dokes - Weaver. Perhaps somewhat obvious. At least it got plenty of attention BITD.

I'm assuming that JCC-Taylor qualifies as obvious.

I thought the first McCall-Lewis stoppage was a travesty. Leonard-Benitez didn't need to be stopped, although Ray would have won on points anyway.

Orlando Salido vs Juanma

it wasn't that early... it was a good stoppage in my opinion...

It probably saved Juanma from a lot of extra damage that may have shortened his career. He was a beaten fighter when it was stopped.

Joey Curtis pulling the plug on the previously mentioned Dokes-Weaver I was the first fight that came to mind when I seen this thread.

I don't see how you can say he was a beaten fighter when he was on his feet and throwing back.

There were AT LEAST a dozen times during the Ward Gatti trilogy where those guys win worse shape then Juanma was and the fight was never stopped.

You are asking about the past but I think all fights these days are stopped to quick. You have to be the star or the home town fighter to keep from the ref stopping it on you.

But Scott, wasn't Lewis falling into the refs arms, and didn't he need to be helped down the stairs 5 minutes later? Poleaxed! :lol1:

So was Meldrick Taylor bro. The amount of time left on the clock doesn't count for 5hit.

He was on his feet but just flailing away with harmeless slapping punches. There was nowhere to go but down at that point. If I managed the guy, I'd be grateful for the stoppage. It may have given him quite a few more quality performances later in his career.

Strongly disagree. The time on the clock always matters, especially when the fighter isn't being hit when you actually stop it.

Like I said none of the Ward Gatti fights get past the 6th round if that is the standard for a ref stopping a fight

First one to jump out at me was Chavez-Taylor II. No one mentions it, but I thought it was early.

Vazquez-Marquez II & Casamayor-Katsidis.
