The title was stole from him, everyone in the audience knew that, Lewis was barely standing... can't continue fighting my a$$, he was fine, he has one of the best cut-doctors in the world. GOD DAMNIT THAT **** PISSES ME OFF:angry: :angry:

That was one of the worst cuts I've ever seen. :puke:
Awesome fight tho! They were both duking it out. I think if Lewis would've been in the same shape as he was for Tyson, he would've probably done alot better.

the cut wouldn't have stoped him, one more round and lewis would be gone.

I wouldn't go that far. Lewis was starting to land some pretty wicked shots too.

Still think it was a bad stoppage?
Serious injury could have happened to that eye.

I saw the fight too and I think that it was probably a good call. Honestly I wanted Klitschko to win(I would have loved to see George Foreman come back) but that gash above his eye was horrible. It was a judgement call by the ref and I think he had to make sure that Klitschko didn't suffer permanent damage. It was a pretty good fight up until then, with both fighters landing some serious shots. I think that Lewis was surprised the Klits didn't go down right away, and I think that if there is a rematch, Lewis knows that he is going to have to get in shape for it.

I didn't get to see it but I have been hearing a lot about it on ESPN. It's not the ref that makes the call though, it is the ringside doctor who makes decisions on things like this. From what it sounds like Lewis was ready to be knocked out, but the cut looked pretty bad.
Too bad I don't have showtime or HBO here or I would watch it later. Lewis said after the fight that he would have a rematch if Klitschko wanted to. I think Lewis knows that he was losing and sorta wants to reaffirm his title properly.
