I could be biased so I figured I'd see what the posters thought.
Also, I think if you asked Laraque and Huggy on the way to the box which one thought that fight was a mistake it would have been huggy.
You say Clark got the usual jump. Would you care to explain that.
As far as the fight is concerned, I'm leaning towards Probert in this one. I think he did catch Clark with a right. How damaging the punch was will never be known, unless we can get another angle of the fight. It may have been more of a glancing blow, it may have caught him flush.
One thing I can say with certainty is that Clark did not win the fight. He missed with every punch at the start of the fight. I think the best Wendel can get out of this one is a draw, and I'm doubting that.
