    Default Worst quitter in boxing..

    After Khan recently said “no mas” after taking a thigh shot from Crawford..who would you say is the worst quitter in boxing history.

    Define what a quitter is..there must be levels of quitting..Brook had to quit due to the eye injury..what is an acceptable level of quitting?

    Duran with his no mas against Leonard. No real excuse for it but he more than made up for it in his career.

    Buster Douglas against Evander.

    Seldon faking against Tyson.

    Tor Hammer who quit twice on the stool and was then fired by his promoter via Twitter.

    Golota against Tyson and in a way against Bowe.

    There are very few good examples imo. While Golota against Tyson seems one, i remember reading somewhere that he did in fact suffer a concussion and they found some abnormality or bleeding/swelling on the brain afterwards. Almost always too harsh to call a top fighter out for quitting, they dont get there with that in them and we arent in there bodies, etc. I think that fighting to survive from the get go actually takes a lot less than doing everything you can to win and then packing it in once youre out of options, and we see that all the time.

    Douglas quit before he got on the ring. Disrespected the title.

    Still remember Gary Mason calling the fight after around 40 seconds

    Golota pulled the against Michael Grant also. Think he was ahead by a bit and got dropped late and promptly told the ref..nope I gotta go. We've seen guys opt out in different ways. From intentional fouls inviting a DQ to staying on the stool. Milking rules or having them milked for them with cuts or mystery injuries once clear of the ND or NC 4th round point. In fairness substantial injury is real. To get pounded round after round cut up and know you're so far behind. But when you think flat out quit it's usually the kneel, turning your back or between rounds. Not easy to call professional fighters 'quitters' but as mentioned some guys have established patterns. Ortiz, Golota and Hammer are good ones. Have to add Yori Boy Campas who had his share of oddly opting out in a few big fights. Remember David Allen in two of the Hopkins fights caught peeking at the ref when he was 'out' . Those were some ugly fights. The hot and frigid Bert Cooper had a few times it was easier to just stay seated. Cooper quit against Carl Williams and that reputation followed him right into Foreman fight where he was legitimately hurt but they took his purse. Then over the next number of years he's bringing Holyfield, Mercer and Moorer to the very brink of defeat. At times you have to wonder what goes through a guys head.

    After all this time I'm still not sure what this is. Bizarre fight and the one and only time I recall a guy demanding a ref count him out and then he counts along with him

    I give Khan the benefit of the doubt. He has never quit before. Knocked senseless sure, but he always tries. This was a strange fight, but Khan's strengths are diminished. He will never be a Calzaghe of 36 throwing a hundred punches a round and that was how Khan dominated opponents. Just dazzle with speed and output and just hope his chin doesn't get tagged too often. This style he has now is kind of nowhere. He looks like an older, worn fighter because he is.

    Khan is fast but the timing from Crawford nullified the speed.

    Yori Boy Campas takes the cake for most prolific quitter. He’s still a badass in my book though and fought forever.

    What about this one? A lot of talk about him being shorted so he sent a message to promoters...like don't ever bring me in for a big fight again?
