Cotto-Malignaggi.

First two rounds Paulie got dropped, cut and went on to receive a broken jaw. He was the underdog going in but pretty much everything went wrong for him in those early rounds. Still though the cunt put on a spirited display in going the distance showing some real fuckin toughness. Paulie came out with a lot of credit in that fight despite losing.

Hatton-Senchenko. Hatton was up on the cards but his time out of the ring showed here. Was swinging wildly at times and missing. Kinda ironic how one of the best body punchers in the sport at his prime gets taken out by body shot against a fighter he would have eaten alive in his heyday.

Sergio Martinez-Cotto. Martinez was coming off a bad injury to his knees and got the chance to fight a real marquee name in Cotto. Most people thought Martinez would stop Cotto including myself given he was a proper middleweight. What happened can only be described as a disaster. Put down three times in the opening round by the smaller man before eventually getting stopped in the 9th. Martinez body had given up on him. To be fair to him though he never used his dodgy knees as an excuse.

Mike Tyson - James Douglas?
Tyson became undisciplined and wreckless well before then.

The streetfight were he beat up Mitch "Blood" Green is probably when it all started going wrong. Not to mention his well publicised fights at the same time with the Gold Digger he married.

Summed it up in three sentences there.

Jersey Joe Walcott vs Rocky Marciano. Walcott ahead on all cards going into the 13th round and he gets caught by a vicious right by Rocky and crumbles to the canvas with his left arm tangled up in the middle rope holding him up on his knees---------then face plants to the canvas as gravity pulls his unconscious body to the mat.

In the rematch, it didn't get any better for Jersey Joe as he got KO'd much quicker the second time around, hitting the canvas in round 1 and failing to beat the count.

ETA: Big John Tate vs Mike Weaver in 80. Weaver, the smaller man by 25 lbs. and a few inches shorter than Tate was behind on all cards heading into the 15th round. He pinned Tate against the ropes and unleashed a hard, perfectly thrown left hook that caught Tate on the side of the head and Tate looked like an ebony tree and he simply hinged at the feet and fell straight to the canvas stiff as a board. Another fight where the ref could have counted him out with a sun dial. The KO came at 2:15 of the last round.
