      Did Lara even take a single punch?

        I don't like how the ref jumped on top of Cornflake and stopped him from getting up. He actually held him down, you could see Cornflake didn't quit until the ref pushed his chest. I'm not saying that wasn't a good knockdown, but the ref made sure he stayed down.

          Levels... not sure why they did this to LaManna. Hopefully he was paid well.

              Refs in both mma and boxing do that all the time buddy.

              There is no conspiracy here, when a fighter is seriously hurt better he lay down than get up and collapse again.

              There is a reason they quickly bring a chair and make him sit after the fight.

                Jack Reed should have jumped on Tysons chest I guess.

                  Zaryu, Like you say, levels. Lara is, has been for a long time, world class. Cornflake never was remotely close to that. I guess British fighters have an advantage here because they can fight for a Commonwealth, British & European title. American fighters don't have that. I guess they can fight for, like NABA titles but they don't seem to have any prestige. Hence, I can understand Cornfllake has been a boxer for almost 10 years now, he's had 36 fights & he must feel, its time I was given some sort of shot. This came up & you can understand why he jumped on it. I can, just about, understand why his management agreed to it, although they really shouldn't have done. This fight was an accident waiting to happen & I hope Cornflake doesn't suffer long-term damage.

                    Lara won't have as much luck when he fights Weetabix though.
