Buchanan had testicular surgery; to suggest that it was a result of cumulative shots to the abdomen is absurd. It was a low-blow after the bell. Duran should have been disqualified.
That's a bit of an overreaction. It was low of course, but it was at the bell, during an exchange between both guys and it wasn't intentional.

Buchanan should have been given 5, and, at the most, Duran had a point deducted. There hadn't been any warnings prior, it wasn't a foul filled low blow fest and thus shouldn't result in DQ.

Peterson was rightly DQd. Mares should have been DQd, or at least had two points taken off so he understood he was about to get DQd for doing it again. Duran hitting accidentally during an exchange at the bell is not really worthy of anything more than a point deduction and a 5 min rest for Ken.

It's a pity he didn't get his rematch. It wouldn't have made a difference most likely but it would put a conclusive, uncontroversial end to it. A great fighter such as Ken deserves his rematch and a chance at redemption.
