Otherwise they should have stopped it before the referees instructions.
I know, I just mean that he hadn't shown anything to make anyone think he stood a chance. The very few shots he landed had so little power on that even Khan laughed at them, and he clearly didn't have the technical ability to box with Amir - he was focused 99% on not being knocked out by Khans shots, IMO.
I'm just annoyed that we were robbed of a decent ending, it was a bad matchup, but at least we could've got a good ending! A nice KO would've been good...
