in fights you get hurt…. if someone hits hard enough and breaks ya jaw or hurts you… which prevents you from performing and eventually hinders you game plan…. isn’t that boxing

Just could not believe the judging this result needs to be overruled and Ray Beltran crowned champion
otherwise this sport will lose all credibility

Beltran clearly won the fight, I dont think theres a fan out there who watched the fight who would not have given it to him. I think to suggest the broken jaw had no effect of Burns’ approach to the fight though is a bit strong. I’m a bit suprised by Burns’ recent poor performances though. His tactics and ring savy have been well off the mark. After the third round any wolly could see that Beltrans left hook was causing Burns the worst kind of problems. He corner should have been instructing him to be on his toes, throw no more than 2 shots before getting out of there before Beltran countered him with the left hook. As soon as he felt the ropes on his back he should have spun off and got himself out of range. At points Burns boxed well and showed the kind of skills which were needed to win the fight but then he’d throw a flashy combo onto Beltrans gloves again, get countered badly then retreat onto the ropes where he just went into a shell and allowed Beltran to tee off on him.
