And for the twentieth time, or however many times it's been that I've seen it, it broke my heart. I understand where Richard Steele was coming from, but at the same time, I can't see not judging the situation based on the context of how much time was left in the fight and the likely scenario had he let it finish. There was no way that Chavez was going to land another punch of Taylor unless he ran across the ring and hit him a couple seconds after the bell. There's definitely no doubt that Meldrick was up by the count of five, that he looked at Steele and nodded (before being distracted by his corner), and that Steele didn't seem to ask him anything that would have commanded a verbal response. It still bums me out. Still an incredible fight by both guys. While I'm on this fight, it really bothered me how the broadcasting team of Lampley, Merchant, and Ray Leonard along with Lederman were so enamoured with Meldrick's performance that they didn't even seem to notice any of the big shots that J.C. was landing throughout the fight. It was really unprofessional. It took them forever and a day to acknowledge Taylor's swelling and shaky legs in the last few rounds. I've definitely never seen another fight like this and I've also never witnessed a group of commentators so oblivious.
