Did anyone else watch Vitali Klitschko against Odlanier Solis?

Solis, to me, took a dive... The punch barely caught him and it didn't even hit his head direct as it hit his glove... Just glad i didn't pay to watch that rubbish.

no i think something seriously went seriously wrong with his knee, no way that is a knockout shot, but he knee went, and if you look at his legs after, something went big time, he couldn't put weight on it.

also may i point out, solis tore a cruciate ligament!!! no way he continues.

Any injuries to his knee happened as he was falling.... He had no right to be falling in the first place.
The injury was self inflicted due to him taking a dive.

just seen it on skysports news and it did seem very odd. if its an act its a very very good act but how on earth could that punch have ended the fight?

watching it more it definitely seems his leg goes as he's stepping back

the punch wouldn't,

tearing your acl or something similar is. if you can barely stand on a leg, the fight would of been over within 30 seconds, of round two,

more to the point why does klitscho care, he wins, he retains, happy days, bring on haye.

There was nothing wrong with his leg till he fell... You can see it going as he slips.
As for Klitschko, nah i doubt he cares today either but he wasnt happy last night when he went down lol

So, what are everyone's favourite K.O's? Two that I never get tired of watching:

Miranda vs Banks

Lewis vs Rahman (payback )

And a rare moment of aggression from Fraudley.....

Harrison vs Sprott

I enjoyed watching Shane Mosley blow away that cheat Antonio Margarito after the loaded gloves scandal he had against Cotto, thought that was good punishment for him.

No way should Martin v joshua be a ppv Bout. Neither have achieved anything to warrant a box office fight
