  • Records aren’t everything. Emanuel Augustus had 34 losses but was a very good boxer! Even Floyd had some difficulty with him.

  • He didn’t exactly KO Horvath. Horvath was fine. The referee just stopped the fight.

  • Good stoppage in that Gholami vs. Louis fight. Louis legs were spaghetti and the referee jumped just in time as Gholami would have put him to sleep.
