Even the announcers commented it was a smart call on his part not to give his all against Mario.

Could Mario have held his own in an all-out slugfest? Yeah, it's likely, but Brad didn't take any chances and just played it safe.
that is exactly what happened and what I was referring to, Ference was a tough guy who fought many heavyweights and mario was swinging like a girl. Ference would kill him but out of respect he didn't even throw a punch. I don't know why, mario dove his way to so many power plays in his career he might as well taken at least one good beating.
