Its not that easy to close the fist
I know that sounds weird to you, maybe its due to the fact you train in boxing gloves and let the hands go loose when ever you are not throwing a punch.
Fair enough. The ref was garbage, it was really the ref's job to let Carmont know that trying to jam your fingers in your opponent's eyes is frowned upon.
Ref was too busy giving Carmont endless restarts in the middle of the cage every time Lawlor had the advantage.
