Cracking fight, pure boxing at it's best. It was a prime example of how boxing is intended to be done. Bouts between a pair of bombers or scrappers often turn into mass grapples of hanging on and rabbit punches. I could count on one hand the amount of times Micky Vann had to step in and split the boxers - it were toe to toe, at arms length, and just bombs to the head! It also helped they were both of exact same build and height too... What a fight.
It's the first time I have ever seen a ref actually throw the towel OUT of the ring after the corner have retired their man! Micky either had money riding on the fight or he's a better ref than even his high profile suggests, and to have dropped him immediately after your corner throws in your towel was a moment of genius. I don't think his knee touched down but there was no doubt it should have been counted as a standing 8 count.
