Rogan vs. Sexton, Round 8

New, comments

Here's Round 8 of Sam Sexton vs. Martin Rogan. As you can see, this will go down as a VERY controversial ending. It almost reminds me of Vitali Klitschko vs. Lennox Lewis, where Vitali was winning the fight and had momentum, yet the ref stopped the fight on cuts. Yes, stopping the fight with Rogan's eye completely shut was the right call, but it also would have been the right call to stop the fight either of the two times Sexton turns his back to Rogan, or the time Sexton is standing there completely defenseless and Rogan just doesn't throw because he's expecting the ref to stop the fight. It also seemed very odd to stop the fight right at that moment, when Rogan had all of the momentum. But at the end of the day, he really couldn't see out of that eye.

You be the judge - robbery or good call?
