Though it didn't make it onto the airwaves, Friday's PBC on Spike card in Toronto featured the third fight of former heavyweight contender Donovan "Razor" Ruddock's improbable comeback tour after fourteen years away. Not content with beating up the regional scene's assortment of schlubs, the 51-year-old Ruddock elected to challenge limited but big-punching Dillon Carman for the Canada heavyweight title.
This, as you can see, was a mistake.
Midway through the third round, Carman (9-2, 8 KO) dropped Ruddock (40-5-1, 30 KO) in the corner with a pair of short right hands. Though the veteran made it to his feet, his lack of head movement cost him dearly when Carman looped a another right hand around his guard for a brutal knockout finish.
Thankfully, Ruddock eventually made it back to his feet and seemed to be alright.
Personally, I have all the respect in the world for Ruddock's willingness to challenge himself, but for his sake, I hope this is the end of it. You've got nothing left to prove, champ.
