Yes, it’s back to boxing, and the Nevada Athletic Commission – they strike yet again!
Former Las Vegas FBI agent and NAC Commissioner Bobby Bennett really screwed the pooch on this one, and on national TV.
Last Saturday former champ Andrew Maloney “lost” his rematch with current WBA super flyweight champ Joshua Franco at the MGM Grand.
But the “loss’ was a travesty.
Referee Russell Mora stopped the fight after the second round, ruling that Franco’s closed eye was due to an accidental head-butt in the first round, and he declared the bout a no-decision. Thus, Franco retained the title he had previously taken from Maloney.
The only problem: as was obvious to all who watched the fight, there was no head butt.
