Poor decision making by Noons.
1st Who is he to decide who and when he will fight? I believe a true champion will fight whoever, whenever. Maybe once you make legendary status, you can ask for certain fights, but never refuse who the boss puts in front of you.
2nd The fight was ended on a stupid cut. A fight that Noons appeared to be winning up to that point. Why wouldn't he take the fight and put all doubt, that he is the champ, out of people's minds?
Stripped of the title because he refuses to fight. Why wouldn't he just fight? Doesn't make sense.
