  • Chief ringside physician Frank Doggett stopped the fight on an unprecedented ruling that both fighters were unfit to continue due to the tremendous amount of punishment both men had taken. Sosa's right eye was closed and he may have suffered a fractured cheekbone. Williams had sustained lacerations on his left eyelid.
