Yeah, the replay was embarrassing. Seemed like the whole crowd booed.

Matt, saved by the ref.

Watch it a few times and you'll realise that Brown actually blocked the kick and he did in fact get grazed in the cup.

As for the OP, I believe Brown stopped trying to pressure Lawler so much and be a bit more methodical with his striking. In the first round Lawler was lighting Brown up with counters as Brown rushed in with strikes.

He was pacing himself

Brown isn't the only one who hurt his hand in that fight. Rounds 2-5 we saw Lawler habitually holding his right hand as if it were bothering him. That's what slowed his work rate in round two and he had to get his rhythm back.

This makes more sense to me than pacing himself. Robbie does use the jab often and well. Gotta watch the fight again

Many fighters in boxing will take a round off, if they a bit tired and realize the fight may go long. I think that is what Lawlor did. This being a 5 round fight, I think after that 1st round, he may have just wanted a breather.

matt stepped up in round 2 and robbie was adjusting to the timing and pace of it.

Lawler always seems to have an adrenaline dump in round 2, then recovers in the third.
