    Naw, I don't think anyone really knew much about him before the fight was announced. And I think everyone who said they were picking Ponce was more picking against Ritson due to his Vazquez performance than backing Ponce himself. I believed in Ponce and bet on him, but I'd only known about him for like 2-3 weeks and only became a fan after watching his fights for research during fight week.'

    I meant to say this way earlier. He was probably seen as a live dog by most but not as obvious or as unanimous of an underdog pick as Pedraza was against Rodriguez later that night.

    Ritson lost to Vaquez last time out. No one was thinking big things were going to happen for him. He hasn't had any momentum for years. His feet are poor and is very susceptible to body shots. He just doesn't take them well for some reason. I think everyone was picking Ponce. He's the one who had all the momentum coming in. It was to be expected. This is most definitely not a shock.

    Just watching this now. Jesus Riston would have gotten his **** pushed in against Josh Taylor.

    One judge had Lewis Ritson ahead when the fight was stopped, and one had it to Jerry Ponce by 1 round. Tells you all you need to know. Ritson was a domestic-level weight bully at Lightweight. He has always been wide open to shots, has never improved on any aspect of his game, and has been hurt to the body by journeymen before. He has moved up to 140, and seemingly lost all of the size and strength advantages he had over opponents at 135. He can't box, and he doesn't like it when an opponent applies pressure and fights back. Very little optimism going forward, was a joke Eddie Hearn managed to even get him in position for a "Wurl'" title eliminator, Ritson having won a close fight over Robbie Davies Jr. which could have been scored a draw, and then losing to Miguel Vasquez but being gifted a robbery win. Justice prevailed last night though!
    Do you have a link to the scores?

    Wow, I had actually thought he didn’t see it and threw it out not knowing for sure they had thrown it in....but he clearly did. Odd.

    Some losses are just different! Like Kell Brook, who was little known, coming to the U.S. and taking Shawn Porter's title. Then Errol Spence making his UK debut, and breaking Kell Brook, and snatching his title! Or Tyson Fury humiliating Deontay Wilder on U.S. soil! Warrington and Ritson had big things ahead of them in 2020, and 2 relatively unknown fighters came to the UK, and not only won, but beat them into submission! That's what I meant when I said, "not again."

    What do you mean, not again? That a fighter lost? Yeah, it happens to every nation. Why, which nation do you think it doesn't happen to?

    Strange comment.

    Ponce was the favourite for pretty much most over here. This isn't an upset. The Hurd loss was though.

    By kicking out the towel, you think the ref was helping him? It's a law you idiot. Refs can make that decision. I don't agree with it. But it's legit.

    Corners need to step into the ring if they want to stop a fight, not throw the towel.
