Knocking a guy for his performance is one thing. But I don't see how he's a "toolbox" cause you think he's a bad ref. That sounds like something a tool would say. Phone Post 3.0

I have issues with Mazz, but he's not the worst by a long shot. I don't understand why Dana always calls him out.

Mazz is a good guy and means well. Hes not on the level of Yves and Herb but he is no where, and I mean no where, near as bad as Big Red and Cecil. Phone Post

Really hate that he wouldn't admit that he botched the Jones V. Hamill fight.

Although Jones did throw some illegal blows, they are not what caused the stoppage. Hamill's shoulder is what stopped the fight. So, clearly that should've been a victory for Jones... or at the very least a no contest.

Jones should hate Mazzagati more than Dana does. Not having that 0 on the other side of his record has probably cost him a lot of money.

I agree, he possibly ruined what could have been a perfect career for Bones, and maybe it was a bad call, but the fact that to this day he stands by that call is what makes me think he's a complete douche Phone Post

The only way a ref will live up to Dana's standard is for Dana to get in the ring and ref the fight... Then we can sit back and see how well he does ~ He may be a good ref who knows?

I completely disagree. Illegal blows are illegal. Rule is stupid, but it was still against the rules.

If Jones stood up and started stomping on Hamil's head or soccer kicking him should he have been disqualified then?

Even if it wasn't the stomps/kicks that finished him?

On the plus side he never has to deal with people asking him about being undefeated or the pressure that comes with it and all the marketing and stuff because he technically has a loss. Phone Post

This response should end all future discussions about the Jones v Hamil fight.

I'm a Jones fan and I agree with the DQ loss.

RE it being a 'No Contest' is that not something the camp should have appealed for after the fight? See it happen these days where wins are overturned to a NC because of an illegal foul.

It was so long ago, so I am not sure if that was within the rules back then? Phone Post 3.0

Jones' camp did appeal. It was denied.

I'm a Jones fan, but I agree with notion that the DQ actually takes some pressure off of him. He also learned an important lesson.

With that being said, Mazzagatti's statements in the article seem to indicate that he believed Jones wasn't doing any real damage to Hamill before the 12-6 elbows landed. I'm sorry, but that's comically stupid. Hamill had the living shit beaten out of him before the illegal elbows, which were the last two strikes of the fight, were landed.
