    Did anyone else watch the fight last night? Ward won, but from my perspective, I saw at least 4 nut shots, including one that basically ended the fight.

    Just looked at a post-fight interview,

    from Kovalev
    and from Ward
    and
    The way that I'm reading Ward's is that he realized he might have hit him low, saw the reaction and jumped on it. That with the fact that I saw 4 total low blows throughout the fight (I believe 2 in the last round, may misremember), just doesn't sit straight with me.

    It's the referees job to make sure it doesn't happen. If the fight wasn't ended because of a low blow then there's no controversy if there ws one and it was missed then that's on the ref. he should've taken a point or something.
