Jim Watt TKO12 Sean O'Grady, 1980
Sean O'Grady is likely best known for boxing commentating and interviewing on FoxSports and USA's Tuesday Night Fights in the late 1990's and early 2000's, but once upon a time, he was actually a fighter. Certainly not a bad one, but he struggled against just about anyone with any sort of discernible class. And against WBC lightweight titlist Jim Watt, his skin gave in to the old stereotype about Irish boxers' skin -- that is, that it spews forth crimson when even gazed upon. By most accounts, O'Grady was doing quite well against Watt before the stoppage, pounding left hooks to the champion's eyes and drawing first, second and third blood by way of three gashes around Watt's eyes. But the WBA title wasn't in the cards.
The AP said from Glasgow via the Plain Dealer, "Then, in the 10th, a dramatic change of fortune left O'Grady bleeding profusely from a severe cut low on his forehead, just above the nose. The American felt the damage was the result of a butt, dropped his hands, and was rewarded with two quick right jabs to the wound. His confidence drained from that moment on and French Referee Raymond Baldeyrou halted the contest 30 seconds from the end of round 12."
