He'd just get disqualified if he did that.

People need to understand the difference between a competitive fight that could be scored either way and one that can't. In the Canelo fight, Trout threw more and landed more, but Canelo landed harder and scored a knockdown.

But in this fight, Murray landed more punches, definitely landed the harder shots - Martinez didn't seem to have anything on his punches - and he also scored a knockdown (maybe two). Yet people still say it could be scored either way. If Murray had gotten the decision, everyone would've said the right guy won.
