Sean Gibbons, promoter of John Riel Casimero, questioned the performance of Guillermo Rigondeaux against the Filipino after during the contest for the feather belt of the OMB He spent it touring the ring.
“Maybe he is a good person, but he needs to retire from boxing,” said the representative of Manny pacquiao in an interview with Fighthype. “He definitely has to retire. This is what people didn’t like early in their career. This is not boxing, this is a shame. Get paid to run as if you stole something. “
The split decision was left to the Filipino boxer to make his second successful defense of the 118-pound belt of the OMB, after a judge saw the Cuban win 115-113 and the other two scored 117-111 and 116-112 in favor of the Asian.
“You don’t win fights with the back foot, running for your life,” said the representative. “Casimero
touched Rigondeaux in the first round. In my 35 years in boxing, this is the most embarrassing fight I have ever seen. ”
The combat was highly qualified to score, since Rigondeaux, true to his style, he spent it roaming the ring, while Casimero He went to the front looking to connect it, but it was very complicated.
“I’ve been in boxing for 35 years,” he commented. Sean. “It is the most horrible night I have had in sports. It was terrible. I was a bit surprised (by judge who saw win to William Rigondeaux). I dont know what Tim cheatham he saw, but he needs to go back and find out how a fight qualifies because it was horrible tonight. “
Questioning the referee
Sean Gibbons considered that the judge should have asked Guillermo Rigondeaux to fight or, at the very least, to call his attention so that he would stop walking around the ring and exchange blows.
“This guy was running for his life,” the rep considered. “The referee did a terrible job. He should have told him, ‘stop, fight or I’ll take points from you.’ It’s a bloody joke. It never stopped, the guys are probably running to the hotel right now. “
