As for the ropes, if the ropes hold you up, then it is a kd anyway.
I've watched that 1st knock down closely & i can honestly say that in no way was it a knock down.....peterson went down due to his foot tangling with the ref. I have no clue what to tell you.........
BTW it depends on that individual commissions rules........& many judges don't count backing up on the ropes as a KD unless the guy was noticeably hurt & nearly out of it. a slip to the ropes or darting backwards off balance towards the ropes is RARELY counted as a KD.
& if a elbow is used (which khan used to push peterson down) a warning should have been issued let alone a KD for peterson.
this is why the 2nd KD is VERY debatable.
