    That punch to the pllls from Sharkey to Schmelling was the only defense Sharkey had left  
    Schmelling could angle against Sharkey…(seriously dangerous man)...and bob and weave his way in…and land some hard shots…..again ...and again…Sharkey did what he had to…..Expensive ..but gratifying

    seems to me…in my dusty memories… a fight cannot be won on a foul…but referee can DQ   I think this Sharkey/Schmelling match was the trigger….
