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
I don't really mind Katsidis, not really a fan, but i wanted to see him knock Joel out fucking cold. I can't stand Joel, the guy is a dirty fucking boxer.
That punch to Katsidis while he was down, wasn't in the heat of the moment, that was intentional. Joel knocked him down, Katsidis went to his knees and hands, then Joel hit him. That was just fucking dirty.
Also what the hell, i thought John Ruiz was the only man to hold that much, but tonight Joel held on for dear life.
I was impressed by Joel i will say that. But by no means was i a fan.
I also agree with you Harlem about the refs stopping because of those issues. But i think they need to let them go a little longer sometimes.
Like tonight, i felt it could have went longer. I am not saying in anyway that Katsidis would have won. Shit after that knock down in the 10th i didn't think he was going to get up, but i still think it should have gone on a little longer.
Katsidis lost that fight because of stupidity not because Joel was better. He fucking ran like a retard into that punch, which again was beautiful.
I think Katsidis has a bright future, and would defiantly like to see a rematch down the road before Joel hangs them up.
Either way it was a great fight, but Joel is just a dirty fucker.
