he was hanging on the ropes and not even attempting to defend himself. it was a legit stoppage. if what you said is true about it happening in the first round, that's impressive. but i really don't remember montiel landing anything in the first couple rounds that could've hurt hoz. he seemed to be easily outboxing him.
