Why would anyone fix a tuneup fight? The guy was vastly beneath Marquez's level.

Raheem was a former Olympian. This guy was a bum with a padded record from Columbia. This fight was such a mismatch that it's not even funny. That's why you guys think it was a dive. This was a ferrari vs pinto type of fight.
Looking at this, I think the shot was definitely enough to put him down. If it doesn't look like it from the first angle, wait for the replays. The shot was right on the chin and it snapped his head back and seemed to definitely jar him (from the back angle you can see this pretty clearly).
As I said before, I wouldn't doubt that he ate the shot and decided to not even attempt to get up. I still think that's how it looks. He ate a decent shot that put him down and instantly gave up, essentially. Imo, he never had a chance in this fight anyway.
