That Douglas' count wasn't any different than the one Tyson got.....namely it's a STFU to whinging Tyson KoolAid drinkers.

but people don't take that into account, they take the short cut that fit their agenda

Douglas definitely looked like a man taking his time on the canvas before getting up, he would probably have beaten a good count
No, we don't. But Hearns would also have still had enough stamina to get through and keep fighting back. The reason it got stopped wasn't as much because Leonard was going to knock him out or had him really badly hurt, but was as much about Hearns being exhausted by then and not able to fight back or stay up.

I do know what you mean though.

Any controversy taking away from douglas's win was D.King made and only kept alive by extreme Tyson fans.

See the Gene Tunney long count. Dempsey did not go to a neutrel corner therefore the count did not start and Tunney was allowed down for approximately 14 seconds.

I seriously had Douglas winning up 2-3 points. If I remember right.

The only round Tyson won was the 8th, only because of the knockdown. I scored it 88-83 for Douglas.

It's been a while since I watched the fight but I had Douglas winning nearly every round, aside from the round he was knocked down.

Fighters are taught to pick up the referee's count NOT the timekeeper's. Why? Because the ref's count is the only one that counts.

Poet

With that being true, what was the deal with the second Ali/Liston fight? Jersey Joe Walcott never even started his count because he couldn't get Ali to a neutral corner. They said on Ringside that the rule is the ref is supposed to have the fighter leave the ring if he can't get the fighter still standing to a neutral corner? So then, the fight was stopped when Walcott was told by the timekeeper that Liston was down for more than 10 seconds, but the ref never really started his count, so what was the deal there?

Supposedly, Liston years later was in a diner talking about the fight saying he must have lost because Nat Fleischer (of Ring Magazine) said he lost, since it was Fleischer who pointed out that Liston had been down for more than 10 seconds. Was this fight some kind of exception then?
