    Im watching some KO highlights and many times the referee do the 10 count when the boxer is zombiefied or face planted on the floor. I guess it is tradition, but man, does it look like the douchest thing ever.

    My eyes aren’t so good but it looked like the ref went from 8 to 10, skipping 9 in the process.

    But then some guys recover like Fury and then we know the ref made the right call.

    If Fury was facedown ass up or in some weird position slumped over like Kovalev it would have been waved off....that was a vicious combo he ate

    I think how you look when you're hit matters to a ref...or it seems to anyway

    The guy was going to jump right up at 10 and the ref called it off at 10. Thats how it looks to me. I guess thats his call. If you don't want to get counted out at 10, be up by 8 or 9. I guess its a judgement call if you call it at 10 or after 10.

    I don't have any problem with Fury/Wilder not being stopped but have always said that if Reiss had called it off the way Fury was laying there, it wouldn't have been that controversial. People like to pretend otherwise but we've all seen fights called for less.

    Yeah he gives the 9 and waves it before the guy could get up....i think if you go that far just give the guy 10

    But at the same time you're right...don't wait that late. I was taught to make eye contact with ref while taking a knee to get your wits about you, then get up at 8. No later or else you're risking it.

    He did the right thing in making sure to make eye contact with ref so he sees you're not all foggy and shit....but he kept sort of acting like his body was hurt? Do you see what i mean?

    Oh yeah i agree. That was an ugly way to go down for a 6'9 person.

    It's still mind blowing how fast he recovered....like a movie

    But do you say 10 and wave it off or wave it off as you reach 10? The way the rules are worded, if you reach 10, its over.

    I thought they actually reached 10 but honestly it could be different depending on commission for all i know

    Cazares looks like Vitali Klitschko if he were missing a chromosome.

    Pirog Jacobs had a rough count. Jacobs went down, the ref got to 5 and said nah but Jacobs started moving as it was being called.

    Don't know if he would've beaten the count but stopping at 5 was lame
