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.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

by one.

defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
