Yeah it's called clinch, but in this case I would call it survival. If match was normal judge would separate fighters after few seconds in clinch. If fighter continue to doing it even nearly as poor Roy did it ... it would be decalcified.Just watched the fight, I believe the term is clinching when Jones Jr his hugging Iron Mike. He was even holding on to the rope while doing it.
Hmm. Joe, when Mike (or many other rich people) say he is broke, bankrupt that just mean he have less money then he had earlier. It still means he is much richer than you and me would probably ever be. He was making good money from appearances and other things without fighting. Unlike many fighters who were really high ranking or even being holders of title and now they barely have food. This match is should be charity for old boxing legends in dire financial situation. Yeah, I think some cash want that, but not Mike or Roy did this without 8 maybe 9 digit figure. I know hearing Mike couple months ago that he was offered 30 mil for fight.It will certainly help Iron Mike out a bit money wise.
