Just got back from the event, I was doubting to go because I had a rough weekend (
), but although the event pretty much sucked, the grande finale was just... wow, holy shit.
Ground breaking news: Spong is just from flesh and blood!
But seriously, this was the upset of upsets. I couldn't believe. No one in the audience could. Everyone was just standing, looking around with feelings of confusion, disbelieve and denial
This just did NOT happen, it cannot be!
But, it was Spongs own fault. He was dominating the first two rounds, scored a knockdown with a big knee, and from then he just got a little cocky... it was just a matter of waiting when he decided it was time for the big finish, believe me, he could have ended it whenever he felt like it. He was just butchering Zeyada, but with surgical precision, he found and exploited every opening or weak spot, just scoring away. I just got the impression Spong wanted it to end slowly and just put up a show and give Zeyada a beating.
But then you see what happens if you underestimate your opponent, and it so happens to be that Zeyada has a huge punch, and now it landed and Spong never saw it coming. He could barely make the first eight count, he lied flat on his back, and was wobbling around... The ref could have ended it right there, but the stakes were high, so he let them fight. Soon came the second eightcount, Spong just couldn't recover that fast (it was a huge blow).
From that point everyone started jump in the ring, assuming it would be over now. But, they decided to proceed with the fight, giving Spong a little (but still not much) time to recover. But, it didn't help, and Zeyada kept going at him, finally for the ref to stop the fight.
Wow. I still can't believe it!
