That was a bent decision if ever I saw one. :lol:

If the ref wasn't happy with what went on he should've stepped in.

Shields destroys her.
I wouldn't read too much into that. Anne Sophie Mathis is one of the biggest punchers women's boxing has seen. You look at most female boxers and they have very low KO ratios. Mathis has 23 KO wins from 27 wins. She sparked Holly Holm in their first fight, and wrecked Jane Couch in 2. Bear in mind that Couch went 8 rounds with Rijker (seen as the biggest KO machine in women's combat sports).

For comparison, someone like Ann Wolfe who is seen as a monster in women's boxing had 16 KOs from 24 wins. In fact the only women with slightly better KO records than Mathis (that I can think of/find) are Laila Ali and Lucia Rijker, and Rijker had 10 fewer wins.

In contrast, Shields currently has 2 KO wins from 8. She's not a puncher.

Doesn't mean she won't beat Hammer, and she might stop her, but I'd be surprised if it were a KO win.

That could mean she ends up with a sizeable weight advantage and they just don't have Hammer's title on the line. Look at the state of the Salido-Loma fight. If Shields makes weight...it might have been a tough cut that hinders her, but if she misses it, she could just have a big weight advantage come fight night. She is getting further away from the limit as time goes on there. It almost looks intentional.

I was joking mate. Hammer...Anvil. Just a shit joke.
I actually wasn't sure but thought "ah well he's probably serious" :lol:
In any case, by looks of it she's going to be the anvil come fight night.
