Also i think the stoppage was bullshit. Although the knock down in the 10th was beautiful, still a bad stoppage imo.
It was kjinda quick but Katsidis was finished. After he got up Joel threw a crazy flurry that IMO Katsidis wouldn't have survived. Not only that but since so many fighters as of late have been dying or getting brain damage refs seem to be stopping fights a lil prematurely. And Katsidis didn't dispute so that usually means it was a good stoppage.
edit: And the ref can't stop such an important fight because of an accidental punch on the ground. That happens a lot in boxing in the heat of the moment...I take it you wanted to see Katsidis win? lol
