  • “Mercy stoppage”…? Typical UK refereeing. The A-side was looking better than the B-side so the ref stopped it before anything really happened.
    Refs can do whatever they want over there…

  • They’re doing that Queensberry v Matchroom card supposedly: How about Sheeraz – Ammo Williams? Be a fun fight in that pos division.

  • No surprises here. Williams has made a name for himself off very limited ability but some heart.
