Argentine Federation: No Punishment For The Lazarte Riot

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The President of the Argentine Boxing Federation, Osvaldo Bisbal, said "there is no need to punish" anyone for last Saturday's riot at Club Once Unidos in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In a fight for the IBF's interim-flyweight title, Johnriel Casimero stopped hometown hero Luis Lazarte in the tenth round. The victory promoted numerous supporters of Lazarte to charge the ring and attack Casimero, the Filipino boxer's handlers, the referee and even the IBF officials and journalists.

Several people were beaten and injured, as punches and chairs were flying all over the arena.

Bisbal said there won't be any sanctions on Lazarte, who bit Casimero several times and threatened the life of the referee - and there won't be sanctions on the event promoter Osvaldo Rivero.

Regarding the possibility of the IBF handing down sanctions, Bisbal laughed - "we laugh at the sanctions of the international organizations. They don't have any authority to do so [in Argentina]," Bisbal told a local newspaper in Argentina.
