Alexander Flores was not anticipated to do properly against Luis Ortiz. Ortiz closed the bout as approximately a 21-1 preferred for each SportsBettingDime, and absolutely sure sufficient, Flores was knocked flat on the canvas in just 46 seconds. But, was he actually knocked out or did he consider a dive?
That appears to be the challenge at hand for the California Condition Athletic Commission, who has nonetheless to allow Flores his $80,000 purse. Rather, there will be a listening to to clarify “the unconventional character of the battle remaining stopped,” per The Athletic’s Mike Coppinger.
“I want to be extremely crystal clear that all we’re performing is using some time to critique it,” CSAC govt director Andy Foster mentioned to The Athletic (transcription by way of BloodyElbow). “ … We’re not expressing (he) did anything at all wrong at all. We need to choose a look at this a small far more than we have because (the summary) lifted some questions. … We just require a lot more data.”
Luckily, there are highlights of the knockout, so everybody can choose for them selves. There is a obvious effect of the forearm from Flores’ chin, but it does not look the sort of affect that would down a boxer with in excess of 20 professional bouts.
It’s not specifically a Bob Sapp fight, but it is all a little bit questionable. We’ll see if something comes from the listening to in owing time!
