7) Say it ain’t Joe

There isn’t much more you can do to warrant a referee stoppage.

While bantamweight elder Joe Warren is as tough as they come, he was clearly out on his feet from Pat Curran’s relentless barrage way before referee Jeff Malott stepped in.

Warren took probably three times the amount of punishment that he needed in a late stoppage that certainly didn’t help his career longevity.
