The way Hopkins trainer kept shouting out bodyshot bodyshot bodyshot, then 5 seconds later DLH goes down. Do you boxing fans think it was staged for DLH to take a dive or was it a good placed bodyshot and it was legit?
No he didn't.
I was at fight but closer to the top than the ring and thought it was a dive. On the way out I was next to manny steward and I asked him. He said it was real. When I finally got home and saw on tv it looked genuine.
