  • Wayne Llewellyn catches Michael Sprott taking him almost clean out.
    Sprott gets up at the count of nine and is allowed to continue - did the referee stop it too late - the commentators seem to thing so.
    Or were Wayne's punches not causing any real damage until the referee stopped the fight?
    You make the call!

    Ref did a good job. He saw that the hurt boxer was still blocking most of those shots and he didn't stop it too early.

      The Boxers Last Stand that is because more boxers are dying. The rule is it can be stopped if the fighter is not throwing any punches not because he is covering up. Just because you are covering up you still can be hurt.

      No it was too early. The guy was still defending himself. Stoppages are getting more and more frequent these days, and it's allowing room for corruption.

  • tyme4mike
    tyme4mike 11 years ago

    Most of the punches thrown after the knockdown were eaten by the fighter's gloves. He's in a defensive mode which is EXACTLY what a fighter is taught to do if he's wobbly or needs to catch some breath. He doesn't know if there's only a few seconds left in the round so he's defending very well, waiting on the bell like he's trained to do. The stop came at the time it should have and the ref did his job admirably.

  • Roddas

  • joopsnoop
    joopsnoop 11 years ago

    Ref did a good thing and timing of the stoppage was spot on IMO. The punches weren't scoring -- all landing on the gloves. Ref was in a position to see Sprott's eyes after the knockdown, definitely better position that the commentators. You have to give the fighter an opportunity to fight out of it and he did. It is not about if he didn't recover from the knockdown as ALL fighters take time to do that. It is about whether the fighter is able to defend himself. And Sprott was defending well.

  • LKeet6
    LKeet6 10 years ago

    ignored my main point, that there was a substantial risk of a badly injuring punch getting through. Especially in a heavyweight fight. Sprott was out of it, staggering backwards. You're right that people can come back, but there was no sign from sprott, usually the guy will come back with a couple, get hit again, maybe get saved by the bell and recover between rounds. None of that here. The fight game isn't too much for me, i've seen 100s of fights and only 2 or 3 inept referees like this.

  • drumfucked
    drumfucked 9 years ago

    are you serious? he got through with at least 3 punches almost on the back of his head. the impact could be enough to cause a concussion. sure it's a rough sport but don't underestimate the power of the hits he took. I do Muay Thai and i have experienced it a lot, that some hits didn't look as hurtful as they actually felt. If you look exactly you see some hits landing behind his blocking glove

  • Trontholomew Garzantaria

    That was a good stoppage. The fighter was still protecting himself, and you can clearly see the ref almost stop it before when he seemed like he was not protecting himself. Good on the ref.

  • Joe Blow
    Joe Blow 11 years ago

    It was a PERFECTLY timed stoppage. The referees are professionals and know what to look for to allow a fight to continue or be stopped. The announcers have absolutely NO CLUE as to what goes into such decisions and therefore announcers should stick to useless blabbing as that is all they are good for here. They are qualified to be NOTHING more than TALKING HEADS. The announcer's opinions on the stoppage is no better than the drunk arm-chair- referee at home yelling at his TV and spilling beer.

  • Gabe Garcia
    Gabe Garcia 11 years ago +1

    perfect stoppage...he was covering up the whole time

  • thisbrokenmachine
    thisbrokenmachine 11 years ago

    I believe the reff was giving the boxer the benefit of the doubt because he was still semi intelegently defending himself by backing up, tieing up the opponent, and covering up. He was buying time to recover, only the accumulation of punches breaking through his defence made that all but impossible. I think the reff did a good job at calling it when he did rather than at the knockdown or any earlier moment b/c every boxer is different, some can recover quick and get back into the fight

  • Contentz

  • Michael Paddon
    Michael Paddon 11 years ago

    For me depends if its title fight or not. For me I'd stop it about the 40 second mark. He was up and was covering up enough, which you'd expect after a big knock down. However after that with nothing coming back, and the left that hit home at about 39-40 seconds that is when I stop it.
    If this was a fairly nothing fight, might stop it earlier as he was pretty gone on his feet, but only the ref can see the spouts eyes when he asks him if hes ok, and thats the real guage of how out of it he is.

    @kintle182
    i agree, fighting a 3 min round is incredibly tiresome. most people havent experienced that, but the concentration needed is quite a lot. i like ligh and middleweigth fights better than heavyweights because they tend to be more strategy and skill focused. heavyweights are mostly(but not entirely) about raw power

  • Kurt
    Kurt 11 years ago

    Compared to the reffing behavior of what you normally see in an MMA fight this was stopped waaaaay too early. I'm certainly no afficionado of the rules of boxing so I couldn't say whether it was stopped too early or not.
    While I'm all for stopping a fight to preserve brain function the fighting spirit of a martial artist like Sakuraba could have endured the kind of comparative patty cake slapping seen here for another 2 hours and then recover for the victory.

  • KARMIOS

  • Milo Berrios
    Milo Berrios 9 years ago

    I agree with the ref on this one, the downed boxer had enough time to make an attempt to at least guard himself and counter-attack, he stayed on his feet enough for me to give him a chance, I've seen longer and more brutal stoppage delays than this in boxing and mma

  • christo930
    christo930 11 years ago

    I think the ref did do a good job. Most of those punches were landing on the gloves and not on the fighters head. As soon as he took some real head shots, he stopped the fight. Great refereeing, maybe a little late. I wouldn't have let him take that last head shot though..

  • lfcblaze
    lfcblaze 11 years ago

    He is holding his hands up as his last line of defense, and even if the blows were hitting his gloves, the impact was still strong enough to cause significant damage. It was quite clear that he was not coming back from that barrage of attacks, and the corner didnt throw in the towel because they were sure that the ref should have stopped the fight.

  • Anthony Lucania
    Anthony Lucania 11 years ago

    Good timing by the ref. Even though the guy was hurt he covered up well and the other guy didn't land flush.

  • Jamie D
    Jamie D 11 years ago

    Well, after the knockdown, even though the fighter was wobbly, the biggest part of the punches did not land cleanly, they mostly hit gloves and arms. The fighter in red trunks was defending himself with gloves up, avoiding taking many clean shots to the head, although he took a decent uppercut from the other guy while his head was being held down. Until he is not blocking the shots well enough, let him continue, give him a chance to find his legs and get back in this thing.

  • Richard40171
    Richard40171 11 years ago

    It's a difficult call. One's first instinct is of course that the fighter was out on his feet after the knockdown and it might have been stopped then. On the other hand, fighting while hurt is what fighters do or are supposed to do, by choice. Many fighters play possum to regain their wits; we know even Ali was dazed in the first Frazier fight. The ref wanted to be 100% sure the fighter was unresponsive and when he saw that he stopped it.

  • rmcdfitness
    rmcdfitness 11 years ago

    I know he never threw one punch after the knockdown but he was defending himself the entire time, try to give them some time to gather their bearings or get it to the end of the round. He just didn't recover well and I think it was stopped at the right point.

  • Ian Billen
    Ian Billen 11 years ago

    @TheCagewarrior
    Me as well. Sure, the fighter was hurt, but the ref gave him some time to recover. He was hurt but not so badly he didn't know where he was or couldn't keep his hands up. He was protecting himself, but his legs were gone. The ref gave him ample time to clinch and try and recover but he didn't so the ref stepped in at about the right time in my opinion. He was pretty shook up, and sure, he was hurt, but he wasn't "terribly hurt". He knew where he was (though he was unsteady).

  • ajuvix
    ajuvix 11 years ago

    These guys are professionals. You have to give them every chance to ensure a decisive outcome by their own merit and not the judgment of the referee. Good call by the ref at the appropriate time.

  • FireStormBaller
    FireStormBaller 9 years ago

    I think the referee did a great job. People always complain too early and too late, no matter where the referee stops it, it's never good enough for you guys. I've seen fights where the referee stops the fight wayyy later than this, way more brutal and more injuries than this and I've seen referee stop the fight wayy earlier than this, didn't see anything happen and the fight is stop...

  • Daniel Olsen
    Daniel Olsen 11 years ago

    I would have called it a few seconds earlier. He DID get up after the knockdown, he responded to the ref, but it was clear after a few more seconds that he wasn't able to defend himself.

  • CommonSense
    CommonSense 9 years ago

    Ref did a beautiful job! Pefect timing. You have to give the fighters a chance to "redeem" after having been knocked down. The guy clearly gets up in 8 seem to not wobble as much to indicate he's out. But if you not gonna punch back, on top of taking some POUNDING lefts, it's over.

  • AirBabe
    AirBabe 11 years ago

    @OvalleFamilia Thank you for the reply, you make your point very well. I have to say I am suprised that there are cases when only the ref can stop the fight, I find that a bit disconcerting that a situation could arise where the trainer wants to stop it (and he knows his man better than the ref) but can't. I have to say that on reflection perhaps the ref could have held back a bit, as you say he wasn't taking substantial damage, he might have made the bell and consequently got his legs back.

  • vinsta76
    vinsta76 11 years ago

    Michael had his guard up, he was defending himself. After the knock down he got caught by a hefty punch straight away but continued to defend himself. Then after some glancing blows the ref stopped it when one more clean punch got through.
    I thought the ref did an ok job

  • DRCsyntax
    DRCsyntax 11 years ago

    That was a good stoppage; the commentators probably never fought a round in their life. He's a damn fighter; he GOT UP, that means he still wanted to try; most of the punches that he took after he got up were blocked anyway, it wasn't until they started landing clean that the ref stopped it. Everyone has seen a wobbled fighter come back from the brink and deliver a KO; it happens; don't take the their chance away.

  • Crafty Vegetarian83
    Crafty Vegetarian83 11 years ago

    Would've stopped it right when he got laid out. The dude was wobbly the entire time and took unnecessary damage. Even though he was blocking, he was still getting hurt. The dude had no legs and offered zero offense- he immediately goes into defense and was just a sitting duck before it was called.

  • James
    James 11 years ago

  • Grufftastic
    Grufftastic 11 years ago

    The ref did it by the book. Stopping it any earlier would have the title of the video being "Did he stop the fight too early". Ref can't win either way.
    He suffered a flash knockout (still a concussion). If it were an MMA fight it would have been called a KO. It's dangerous to continue after suffering any brain injury, so the commentators were not "wrong" to question it, as the result would have been the same if he did stop the fight earlier.

  • DavySigfusson
    DavySigfusson 11 years ago

    I think it should have been stopped, I'm surprised the ref didn't... It takes a lot more than a couple of seconds or minutes for a person to recover from that kind of blow and just like the commentator said, his feet obviously fell from under him, a clear sign of a flash knockout.

  • caligti4
    caligti4 11 years ago

    personally, if a punch puts you clean on the floor.. i think its time to call the fight, getting "knocked out" is a sign of serious damage and the ref cant let that go on. especially when he was stumbling and didn't even throw another punch. Boxing is a great sport, but like football, you cant allow people to get seriously hurt

  • linop412
    linop412 11 years ago

    The Ref stopped the fight exactly when it should have been stopped. He was defending himself and not to mention non of the punches thrown at him were landing.
    Plus a fighters legs can come back to him rather quickly.

  • Yutubetopteensingers

  • ayobmedz
    ayobmedz 11 years ago

    I thought it was gonna go the full 2:12 of the clip, but this wasn't bad. Sure you could make the argument that it should have been stopped but it wasn't outright offensive like the announcers implied, and it certainly didn't look like the guy suffered any permanent damage after getting back up at the 9 count.

  • neonblack88

    aristotle358 11 years ago

    They're damned if they do and damned if they don't! Sometimes when the ref stops a fight the person who was on the verge of being knocked out complains that he could have carried on (as do fans sometimes). Perhaps in this instance the ref did leave it a bit late.

  • Death Tap
    Death Tap 11 years ago

    He was fine. His defense was up. His legs were wobbly, yes, but his defense was still tight. It was not broken once.
    Tight guard ≠ defenseless.

  • Michael Findlay
    Michael Findlay 11 years ago

    Interestingly the count started before Llewellyn was in a neutral corner. For me it was the wrong one,he was too close to the boxer taking the count. His finishing is diabolical. Sprott's defense took care of most of the punches. It was stopped because Sprott had not fought back.

  • yellowsneakers234
    yellowsneakers234 11 years ago

    That fight should have been stopped at the count. He was stretched when he hit the ground after the knockdown. That means he went completely unconscious. Having barely made it to the count of 9, I would have waved off the fight. It was all heart and instinct that got him off that canvas. There's no way his eyes were straight and the ref should have seen that.

  • randyjsing
    randyjsing 11 years ago

    Michael got up before the count of 10 and began to throw blows...weak ones because his legs looked to be gone but he was fighting nonetheless. Look, I've seen people eventually regain their wits and fight effectively for several rounds after getting knocked out. My question is...why couldn't Wayne FINISH Michael off immediately as soon as he got up? Why didn't he overwhelm Michael with a barrage of effective punches right away? If so then the ref would've stopped it sooner.

  • Scottney

    SeisanStnc 11 years ago

    Get ready to thumbs-down me, but ... I agree with the ref. Yes, the knockout looked vicious but the guy made the count, and that is supposed to equal a chance to continue. He could have stayed down, but was willing and able to get up. He was STILL standing at the END of the fight. On top of that, his corner had a closer view than we do, and they saw fit to let it continue. Boxing is a brutal sport. Just sayin'.

    @PrehistoricPinup I agree. Stop the fight early. Yes, occasionally a fighter gets knocked down, recovers and wins the fight. But that is exceedingly rare. In most cases fighters cannot defend themselves properly and that is the time when the brains gets really damaged. Why would you let a man suffer through that after it's clear who the better fighter is?

  • Sammy Mohamed
    Sammy Mohamed 7 years ago

    I listened first time without audio, I thought :43, which is fight after those two vicious shots, would have been good. Earlier could be fine but the guy was defending himself and appeared OK if still a little wobbled, so I understand why he did not stop it immediately after the knockdown. When the ref stopped it was as far as would be reasonable imo, anything after that would be ignoring the fact that the fighter hasn't thrown back or otherwise done anything meaningful while eating huge, clean shots.

  • DwiteTheSpriteKnight
    DwiteTheSpriteKnight 11 years ago

If his corner wanted the fight to be stopped, they could have thrown in the towel. They gave the fighter the benefit of the doubt and a fighting chance to come back. When it was clear that he wasn't able to continue, the ref stopped it at the right time.

    proper stop right there the ref tells them to protect themselves at all times and he kept his hands up.....ref did a great job of not stepping in too soon

    a couple seconds after the 9 count , realizing he was in no shape to continue the fight or risk injury.

    Ref did a good job. The guy was defending himself. The other dude was just punching the gloves. Until the other dude landed the shot to the head, that's when the ref stopped it.
