That's because both were on a huge win streak. Now they both got outstruck or stopped by lesser strikers. I'd still like to see this.
I think both JDS and Reem were too confident in their striking leading up to their fights; JDS making Klitschko comments and promising another quick KO, Alistair saying Bigfoot is just another name, nothing to be worried about. Both kept their hands down (and you can keep them down if it works, not when taking shots like both tend to do. Anderson can do this, the ones who get away with it).
I think they'll be more focused now that they lost, which makes for a great fight.
