Re: Leigh Wood v Michael Conlan
Conlan is apparently awake and stable in hospital.
Just incredible stuff. When you think boxing might have kicked you in the balls for the last time and you're contemplating walking away. It shows you a bit of love back with miracles like Gill and Wood and gets it's hooks firmly back into you.
Wood was second best for all but a couple of minutes there. He never ever seemed to be present in the fight until the knockdown. Then it happened. Amazing grand stand finish. Seemingly innocuous short right hand and Conlan's lights were out. I've no idea why fighters are able to fall clean out of the ring. Seems a pretty simple problem to solve.
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
