    Against a tougher opponent they may well have pulled him out but they probably just concluded 'It's only fat boy so let's just charge ahead". They would also have been aware of the fall out as thousands of Brits had already paid a lot in flights and hotels to be in NYC for the fight.

    Surely it would have made sense to let the medics decide after the concussion tests/examinations.

    State Athletic commission, presumably.
    MMA fights have been cancelled in the past when commissions have stepped in and not cleared someone to fight.

    Artem Lobov beating Paulie Malignaggi in bareknuckle is straight up hilarious

    "I got hit with one punch" while he has three open wounds on his face

    Whyte failed a drugs test before the Rivas fight. If his sample B confirms it then it’ll be his second offense since 2012 and could face 8 year ban; idea why it shouldn’t be a life time ban.

    Two deaths in three days.

    I like watching a good dust up as much as the next man, but sometimes we forget how bloody dangerous it is and it becomes harder to argue against those who want it banned.

    Just as tragic is the death of Barry McGuigan’s daughter from cancer at just 33.

    Condolences to all the families.

    Eddie Hearn made a huge deal about Big Baby Miller failing a drugs test. Claiming he was endangering AJ and a monumental cheat etc etc. I wonder if he'll take the same stance with his own fighter. If they knew about the A sample before the fight and went ahead regardless then people (including Hearn if he knew) should be hung out to dry.
