Rob McCracken ducking and weaving over concussion comments

He ate AJ’s best shots and smiled. Some people get all the luck.

Did I just hear someone say that when Peter Wright loses a game of darts he is beaten by a better player, but when he wins he is lucky? Have a spell mate.
Trolls who aren't funny, aren't clever and continually contradict themselves are just plain boring.

It's been a while since I watched them, but I remember thinking Froch was concussed in the Taylor fight, and maybe in the first Groves fight too.

All concussions are different, and people react differently, but Froch winning those would help explain why McCracken let the fight go on.

I witnessed a lot of knockdown, knockouts, and concussions during my amateur career. So god knows how many a guy like McCracken has seen. He is unlikely to be as phased as a civilian would be, and will have seen cases where someone came back to win.

I have no doubt he would have stopped the fight if he thought AJ was in real danger.
I’m pretty sure Froch was concussed in the first Groves fight, his interviews afterwards & the comments he made between rounds certainly suggested that anyway.

Got to give props to Ben Davison for backing McCracken in this.

This whole thing is stupid as of course any Heavyweight punching another in the head is going to have a concussive effect and they are all concussed to some degree. Fighters know the risks and you can't be a boxer and avoid concussion entirely you will always end up with it to some degree.
I gave you the benefit of the doubt early on but its clear you're nothing more than a boring troll. You're just as bad as the extreme fury nuthuggers

I don't think he is a troll.
He is just an extreme nuthugger.

But, benefit of the doubt, @Ar558a who are your favorite active boxers? Do you have any other than AJ Ar558a?
Mine are, in no particular order, SRR, Inoue, Loma, Usyk, Murata, Estrada, and Ruiz Jr.

Hmm for technical excellence it's clearly Loma and Usyk. GGG was also a big favourite for quite a few years. In terms of entertainment Whyte and Chisora always put a great show.

Really like Carl Froch before he retired, best chin I have seen personally. Generally I enjoy the Heavys, crusiers and Super Middles as there is more chance of an exciting KO. Tend to watch the smaller guys only when there is a good matchup, a brit or a real superstar like loma.

There are good punchers at the lower weights. Watch Inoue, his entire career should only take you about an hour to watch.

Interesting comments from Spencer Oliver, who implies it's quite common for AJ to get buzzed, and when he does, he takes a while to recover:

Oliver, who was placed in a coma after being injured in a fight in 1998, added: "I have known Joshua since day one, when he gets hurt he takes a few rounds [to recover]. So I understand what Rob was thinking.

"He was clearly concussed, we all saw that. But if I was in the same situation I'm not sure I would have pulled Joshua out."
