The ref needs to consider working at a bowling ally…

But honestly, that was kinda hard to watch.. wow. Wow.

Yeah I agree, its crazy that they let the fight go on for that long. Even from her corner. And everybody wants to talk about how brutal mma is, yeah right.

yikes! that fight should have ended way before it did, it sucks seeing a fighter take more damage than needed, it was really difficult seeing her arm get tangled in the ropes, she was out on her feet way before then.

OK, we all agree, that the ref should be banned.
On the other hand, I’ve been watching women’s boxing for years and Holly looked bush league with her flailing, lack of technique and any defense. Her trainer deserves some credit for that beating.

The craziest part is the French chick missed the hook while she was trapped in the ropes. That would have been brutal if she landed it.

The ref waved it off at 2:09… This ref is a disgrace and Holly did not deserve that much punishment after that Knockout. He should of stopped it when her arm got wrapped around the rope.

HOLY SH#T… That ref NEEDS to get his license revoked. That was awful. To Dnomyar, I think Holly was punch drunk from the 4th or 5th round on, hence the flailing. That was really terrible. That ref needs to get suspended or something.

i stopped watching at round 6. At that point she wasn’t even punching anymore. I can’t believe he even let her continue fighting when she wasn’t even all there, although standing.

First few rounds weren’t THAT hard to watch, but the ref just shouldn’t have been in there…

I find that disgusting!! girls shouldn’t do this I genuinely feel bad for her I don’t wanna see girls get beat up and their faces get ripped like that. girl should stay beautiful and do other sports.

and the F@#$ing ref is just horrible he should’ve stopped it much earlier!

Body language alone should have told the ref that enough was enough. I haven’t seen a beat-down like that in many, many years. I wouldn’t let that ref manage a hotdog stand.

Me thinks the ref doesn’t like woman, or the name Holly very much. But her corner could’ve and should’ve thrown in the towel.

Thw ref was an idiot but what about her corner, can they not throw the towel? And if so, why didn’t that happen? Protect your fighter!

I have to disagree with most of the comments here about the referee. This fight was handled the way most men’s matches are handled. In women’s boxing most of the time the first time a competitor is hurt the referee steps in and stops the fight. But in men’s boxing if the hurt fighter is still punching back the referee let’s the bout go forward. Holly Holm never stopped punching back even in the seventh round. Only on the last two punches when she was knocked out did she not punch. Granted, he could have stopped it after she got tangled in the ropes, but he still thought she had a chance. Holly thought he did the right thing to give her the chance to come back, and the ref said it was a championship bout and he wanted to give Holly every chance to come back. I liked the fight and it turned into a really good women’s bout with a sensational finish.

The guy hates womens and wanted one to get beaten badly.Wjat a douche ref.
@fmoore.
Even in men’s boxing the ref would’ve stoped it.She didnt really threw punches back.She just flailed her arms semi counsciously.

best womans boxing match maybe ever. Holly showed alot of heart but she just couldn’t hurt that man looking french bitch. The ref sould of stopped it but it was one hell of a fight. What the hell do u f*** watch fighting for the sportsmanship cmon its about watching someone kicking someone elses ass. I dont give a s*** man or woman

@ viking what?? I have horribly narrow view of gender because I don’t want to see girls get hurt? are you insanely stupid or what? if you read my comment i stated that they can do other sports! I just don’t think boxing is the right fit and especially if you have a ref like that. I have actually respect for Women thats why I don’t want to see them get beat up like that unlike you who enjoys it. don’t bring that lame crap about gender equality stuff yes everyone knows we are all humans and have equal rights but you also have to agree that women are physicality different than Men its a Fact! and not all but most women physicality are weaker than Men! call me old fashion or whatever but I don’t like to see women get hurt and beat up that way. in my opinion if you actually don’t feel bad seeing a women get hurt like that you must have gender issues because any guy that calls himself a man should feel bad.

but hey everyone is in title to their opinion I guess. Cheers!

@ Dave

Women are physically different than men. You are absolutely correct! Sports have found a ways around that! It involves only competing with your own gender. Problem solved! It is some complex in you mind makes you less tolerant to girl vs girl violence than to guy vs guy. It does not mean that it is inherently wrong, as long as they compete with the same gender. Women should be free to compete in any sport, including boxing and mma.

I think viking is on to something by his comment. Why can you tolerate one kind of violence and not the other? They are fighting their own gender. Why do you think women can’t take a beating (willingly in a sport) as well as men can? Or why shouldn’t they? The “they are physically inferior” argument doesn’t work because they are fighting their own gender. The other option is that they are inferior in some other way and should thus be protected. In which way do you think that women are inferior Dave? This is probably what drives your aversion towards women vs women fighting.

That ref should never work a fight ever again. And does anyone test these girls on whether they are actually anatomically female prior to these fights

That’s why I favor MMA. No boxing gloves. No stoppage for counts. This fight would have been over on the first knock down.

The real Holm’s problem I see from this video is she never were able properly hit opponent’s face, yet she opened/unprotected her own. If she is a professional, this dangerous combo should never happen.
