How can Alex Garcia vs. Bernard Benton not be on that list? Seriously?

I agree! Holy fuck was that a badly ref'ed fight! It is very fortunate that Benton did not die that night.

More thoughts on the selected fights:

I am not sure if Bute-Andrade should have been included by the authors. That's one of those 50/50 fights on did the ref make the right call or not. I think the ref probably did the right thing, but his biggest mistake was making too big a deal over the neutral corner rule, and Andrande moving away from it, when he should have been looking at Bute's condition the whole time during that infamous long count.

I also agree that the other fights represent either ineptness or corruption. I think in Bute-Andrade and Chavez-Taylor, that is open to interpretation. After initially disagreeing with Steele's decision to stop the Chavez-Taylor fight, after reading the post-fight hospital reports on Taylor's condition, I now agree with the stoppage.
