Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor's fight was probably next to Whitaker's vs. Chavez was one of the worse robberies in boxing. The ref called the fight in the last round with 5 seconds left to go after Chavez knocked Taylor down. If the fight was not called off the Taylor would have won. Don King never loses. Still it was a bad call the Ref should not had stopped the fight with 5 seconds left especially when Taylor was not seriously injured.

richard steele is not the time keeper. he asked meldrick if he was alright and got no answer. he then yelled step towards me and nothing happened. good stoppage in my book. better to be safe than sorry.

Professor I am going to have to respectfully disagree. He stood up nodded his head. His hands were up, he was not staggering. It was the last round for crying out loud. It was a bad stop and the Ref should know that time since they let you know when there are only seconds left in the round. Bad stoppage.

Not seriously injured? He had multiple facial fractures and was pissing blood. He lost like a quarter of his blood are you kidding me, o was a huge fan of meldricks but that stoppage was one of those where its up to the ref. I wouldn't have been mad either way, but Taylor was non responsive and it was mostly due to his corner for telling him shit from the corner and distracting him which is why he wasn't paying attention to steele. His corner sucked

It was the last round! Chavez did not look like a beauty queen either. I mean either way that fight could had been stopped earlier if we are looking at facial features. It was a robbery. I am sorry.

A beauty contest is one thing. Facial fractures and peeing buckets of blood is another
