Compassion vs. Neglect in the corner

When Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez finally caught up with game Matthew Macklin on March 3, 2012 in the Garden, the knockdowns bordered on the savage. Mack the Knife was cut down twice in round 11 and despite his warrior propensities, he was in no condition to continue. Matthew had taken enough punishment. Buddy McGirt knew what to do; he showed compassion and stopped the fight.

But sometimes a corner seemes to suffer decision paralysis and can't waive the white towel. Oscar Diaz found this out when he was mugged by Golden Johnson a few years back.

Can you cite instances of both of these kinds of situations?

Note: This will be my last Fan Post on BLH as I now morph to writing True Crime and Noir. I will write boxing exclusively for Boxing.com as 1) I accelerate marketing efforts for my crime book with signings and readings and 2) continue to work on my second book.

BLH is a superb site with knowledgeable posters and I have only great things to say about it, Scott, and the rest oif the crew. I will continue to read the stories and maybe make an occasional post. I get many of my ideas that way. Heck, many posters know as much about boxing (if not more) than many writers.

Cheers, mates.
