Boxing referee in hot seat after an insane no-call

Published

on

Garry Ritter, a boxing referee is in current hot discussion within the boxing community after his no-call on a knockdown that led to more beating lasted for 12 rounds.

Israil Madrimov and Eric Walker was the fight Ritter was calling on, the co-main event. On the ninth round, Madrimov successfully connected a full strength left hook that hit the jaw of Walker sending him to the canvass.

While the replays showed that it was a legal knockdown, Ritter saw it differently saying Walker was pushed by Madrimov shoulder. However, Walker was clearly shaken up and took a minute to get up. 

The fight should have stopped from that point on but the fight continued and Walker received more punishment until the three minute mark of the 12th round.

The missed call of the referee had put Walker into a dangerous scenario which could lead to severe injuries and even death.

This is not the first time it happened in boxing, that’s why they are pushing for the betterment of judging to avoid more casualties to boxers competing.
