Recently, two fighters gained great respect in losing efforts. One, former WBO heavyweight champion Siarhei "The White Wolf" Liakhovich was stopped by Robert Helenius in Round 9 and then, following the bout, was taken to a local emergency room. He had suffered a broken nose in two spots with the first fracture occurring early in the fight and the second one during the second half. Yet he displayed uncommon courage throughout the fight and gained much respect and many new fans in the process as he went out on his shield.
Can you think of any others?
