    Kono really didn’t need that second battering.
    Already beat up and out on his feet the fight should have been stopped with the first KD, beautiful counter.

  • Ignacio Ortiz

    I totally agree Christopher Hills. Kono got beat up for an extra 15 seconds and got dropped even harder for no reason other than Robert Byrd made a horrible call allowing to keep fighting.
