Dokes, who weighed 253½, stopped Washington in the eighth, but was cut badly in two places and dropped in the seventh. According to earwitnesses, Cohen, whom Dokes calls "Popsy," told Dokes, "I won't let you fight again if you ever get this out of shape." Luckily for Dokes, his poor effort was seen only on L.A.'s Prime Ticket cable network. Otherwise he may have lost all hope for a shot at Tyson."
