Reaction to the brutal Josh Warrington loss and some highly controversial officiating at Wembley
IN this special reaction podcast, Alex Steedman and Matt Christie attempt to break down an eventful night at Wembley that saw Josh Warrington lose to Mauricio Lara in a beyond brutal upset and the judges steal the headlines again for some contentious scoring on the undercard.
Warrington was eventually stopped in the ninth round but arguments that the bout should have been halted as early as the fourth carry significant weight.
In chief-support, eyes rolled as Zelfa Barrett was named the victor over a sprightly Kiko Martinez. The Briton may have done enough to win, but the cards, namely two that read 118-111 in his favour, were not in keeping with the fight witnessed by the vast majority of observers.
What can or should be done in the face of officiating controversies?
