What if it should be champion and he'd lose his title that way? . . . They have a rule in California that they use sometimes and I think it should be adopted here . When the doctor stops a fight .hey take up the cards right awa> and if the buy who is cut is leading :hey call it a draw. He doesn't gel that TKO on his record and that way nobody is hurt."
