      I dunno, man. It seemed like a good stoppage to me.

      Rory didn’t have an answer for anything Carlos threw for the last 2 or 3 minutes, much less for the last 45 seconds. Rory was getting brutalised against the cage. I was shocked when I saw it at first, but going and looking back at it, it made a lot of sense.

      I think if it hadn’t stopped then, i think Carlos had a fair chance of knocking him out.

  5. Nando says:

    I wonder why they cut the countdown shows down to half an hour

    Awesome card. Big Matt Brown fan but don’t think he’ll get passed Wonderboy. Hope he does though!
