Buddy McGirt on the stoppage:

“I couldn’t convince him (to stop), but at the same time I saw he was getting hit with more and more clean shots as the fight went on and I’m saying to myself, ’Is this worth it?’ One punch can change a whole guy’s life and I wasn’t going to let that happen. I’d rather have them be mad at me for a day or two than be mad at me for the rest of their lives.”

Hoping he recovers. 

Boxing can be brutal.
