The ref needs to consider working at a bowling ally…

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

i cant watch girls get beat up

jondoe Says, in 12-4-2011 at 21:17:55 from    

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.

d_frost Says, in 12-4-2011 at 21:26:28 from    

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.

Dnomyar Says, in 12-4-2011 at 22:07:51 from    

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.

clumpofdirt Says, in 12-4-2011 at 22:15:28 from    

No defense, I love foxy boxing !!!!

Freedomfit Says, in 12-4-2011 at 22:19:55 from    

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.

AP Says, in 12-4-2011 at 22:33:56 from    

Looked like they were in two completely different weight classes.

Turboobsessed Says, in 12-4-2011 at 22:56:18 from    

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.

tobes Says, in 12-4-2011 at 23:33:33 from    

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.

thats right effed up

canguy Says, in 12-4-2011 at 23:41:28 from    

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.

Androly-San Says, in 12-4-2011 at 23:57:47 from    

Wow… just wow… That was terrible.

yk Says, in 12-5-2011 at 01:11:23 from    

great fight! but ref should be punished.

ETK Says, in 12-5-2011 at 02:44:54 from    

Sophie Mathis looked like she was on drugs, the way she just walked right through punches.

viking Says, in 12-5-2011 at 03:26:16 from    

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

Boxing Says, in 12-5-2011 at 03:34:28 from    

I want to see Cecilia Braekhus vs. Anne Sophie Mathis next.

Dave Says, in 12-5-2011 at 05:37:00 from    

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!

xformat Says, in 12-5-2011 at 06:10:12 from    

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.

Timekeeper Says, in 12-5-2011 at 08:35:13 from    

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.

darkcanuck@shaw.ca Says, in 12-5-2011 at 09:56:42 from    

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!

paalle Says, in 12-5-2011 at 10:01:37 from    

Man. I wanted cecilia “the first lady” Brækhus to do this……

axl782 Says, in 12-5-2011 at 11:04:25 from    

two words: corner stoppage :@

JoeDog Says, in 12-5-2011 at 11:24:02 from    

Ref’s rules – A fight to death. Jeeeez! Brutal.

fmoore Says, in 12-5-2011 at 11:30:31 from    

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.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 12-5-2011 at 11:39:28 from    

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

@Dave: leaving aside your horribly narrow view of gender inequality… why did you watch this video???

ironfist Says, in 12-5-2011 at 18:34:06 from    

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

tapiocca Says, in 12-6-2011 at 01:27:15 from    

video doesn’t work for me :(

Bruno: Fixed

Dave Says, in 12-6-2011 at 06:00:07 from    

@ 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!

alexandro420 Says, in 12-6-2011 at 10:17:39 from    

@ 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.

The Corner is the first line of DEFENCE!!

Rocco55 Says, in 12-6-2011 at 22:15:11 from    

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

The Funky FRO Says, in 12-7-2011 at 00:43:08 from    

Idiot f*cking ref. She’s hanging unconscious behind a rope…..then he doesn’t even make sure she’s coherent?

yourmomsucks Says, in 12-7-2011 at 10:59:30 from    

sweet! what’s jones doing sparring with this chick anyway?

kaobeto Says, in 12-8-2011 at 02:49:44 from    

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

rt253 Says, in 4-25-2012 at 14:29:42 from    

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.
