  • Description

    Ninth ranked World Boxing Association (WBA) heavyweight Ron Lyle was knocked down in the second round of his fight against Ernie Shavers in Denver on Saturday night (13 September) ... but got up to win by a knockout.

    Shavers, who is ranked seventh in the WBA heavyweight ratings, has forty eight knockouts among his forty nine victories....and appeared to be headed for his forty-ninth knockout win when he dropped Lyle to the canvas in the second round with a classic left hook.

    However, Lyle managed to get up before the official count of ten had been completed.

    Shavers' handlers say they will appeal to the World Boxing Association because they claim that Lyle received an extra long count when he went down in the second round. They say it enabled him to recover and fight on.

    After the second round, Lyle dominated the fight and by the sixth round he had Shavers up against the ropes when he put him down with a left to the head.
