The call was right based on WHEN and HOW the fight was stopped. I agree with many that it could have been ended earlier, but I guess Matt was defending himself enough.
And note, not all illegal or accidental blows give a fighter 5 minutes to recover....See Lawler/Smith.
right, but that was because the doctor stopped the fight because smith said he was seeing double ... mazz stopped the fight incorrectly ... doesn't matter though, jones thumped him ....
