Just curious......does anyone have this on TIVO? No doubt that Jones got rocked hard, but I'm just curious if it Nady's count was right. It seemed a little quick to me.

Nady could have counted to 20 and it wouldn't have made any difference, I swore I saw tweety birds flying around RJJ after he got up at the 9-count, and then he veered left along the ropes. RJJ was knocked into next week (literally).

Did the camera guy that Tarver hit after the fight get a 10 count? I know it was an accident, but i don't remember the HBO crew saying anything about it.

That was the funniest thing about fight coverage. Too bad they didn't show a wide angle shot of Tarver accidentally KO-ing that cameraman.

Wow, you're good.












BTW, wouldn't it have been funny if they had digitally altered the video so that it was RJJ who knocked Tarver out? Then Ashton Kutcher could have come out and said to the digitally created RJJ, "You just got punked!"

That was awesome. There HAS to be some footage of it somewhere.

I can't stand Tarver. I really hate when people talk about themselves in the third person and he does it more than anyone I can think of. Good punch though. I thought it was funny how Jones kept making obscure excuses about the 'circumstances' then denying that he was making any excuses.
