Agree. Terrible stoppage. Wouldn't have mattered though. He ran out of gas again.

As it was. Fucking boxing.... Fucked by the judges or fucked by the ref, Kovalev would always be fucked over against an American in the US if possible. He would probably still lose this one though, Kovalev was in trouble.

Agreed. Didnt affect the ultimate outcome but it was a shit stoppage, and some of those shots in the end were clearly below the belt.

DisIsDeRiddumOfDeNite - Kovalev has no gas tank

Don't think it was his gas tank, Ward did a great job of working the body especially a few rounds leading up to the stoppage. The 2 low blows would've drained him too.

Have to agree with Paulie, terrible stoppage.

They showed the scorecards and he was down on 2 of 3 everyone had him winning 6 or 8 rounds though.

His belt was pulled up above his belly button. None of those shots hit his nuts.

He got nailed with a low blow early in that round and wasn't even given a chance to recover. 

 

It really sucks because nobody wants to see a fight end in controversy. 

 

I dont understand why the ref called the fight at the end and did not give him a standing 8 count instead ?

No standing 8 count for the majority of title fights. He should of taken a knee if he wanted time to recover.

It is absolutely wrong that they're allowed to wear groin protectors and pull their shorts up to their arm pits.

Shit stoppage, Kovalev was done, pretty much every agrees with both things. More importantly, Malinaggi needs to stop calling fights, big fan of his as a boxer, but as a commentator he's the most insuffable kind of NYer

as someone said his pants were pulled up pretty high there, none of those shots hit him in the cock lol If it did I think he would have been way more vocal than thinking he deserves a rematch
