    Despite the fact that you get beaten for most the round, fight back at the end, because that's the only thing the judges will remember.

    He didn't just "fight back," he had Gus BADLY hurt in that round, while Gus never had him hurt. To me, that's winning a round.

    Yeah generally when you have someone badly hurt at the end of the round and in danger of stoppage, that's enough to win you the round.

    Started watching combat sports today, did you?

    Hurting your opponent badly generally gives you the round. Go figure.

    Yeah, but you can't cry about it.
    This has been true since FOREVER.

    watching Jones glancing at the clock trying to "steal" every round was hilarious

    All fighters take a look up at the clock. Fighters pace themselves and usually turn it up at the end of a round whether they think they are done or not.

    Nearly finishing the fight wins you the round?
