The interview was riddled with inconsistencies. He fights according to the “code”, which is a set of conventions that revolve around respect. He doesn’t respect Lucic because of his junior league antics. So why does the code apply? He mentions that according to the “code” Chara and/or Thornton would not be able to turn him down, but it sure looked like Thornton did later in the game (though to be fair neither guy was guilty of running around).

Bottom line, it’s time to update the code, when your opponent does not play by the Marquess of Queensberry’s rules neither should you.
