Yea don't necessarily disagree, but I do think while it looked gruesome it wasn't as bad as it looked. Or it was more superficial than serious.

That said due to the wideness of the fight & the injury I'd have had no issue with the ref calling the fight. I'm on record here as saying more fights should be stopped sooner when its merely uncompetitive & a guy is just getting beaten up & not putting up much of a fight. To me as a fan one of the worst parts of boxing is the sheer volume of uncompetitive fights that I believe makes boxing less interesting to fans so its doing no service to anyone from the athletes to the fans.

And back to the cut perhaps ironically as a MMA fan where blood is more common specifically blood covered faces the worst injuries seldom come from those blood drenched faces & much more often come from mfers who've just taken hard shots to the brain, jaw or eye socket & the bleeding you see on them is more trivial.

So again I think the cut looked BAD, but at no time was Badou in greater danger than he was when he first walked into the ring.
