DiBella Explodes on Cloud Decision: A F***ing Disgrace!

By Rick Reeno

Lou DiBella, promoter for Gabriel Campillo (21-4-1, 8KOs), went wild over Saturday's scoring in the fight between his boxer and IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (24-0, 19KOs), which took place at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Campillo was able to overcome two knockdowns in the first round, and then proceeded to outbox Cloud for the majority of the fight. The scores were 115-111 for Campillo, and 114-112 and 116-110 for Cloud. The Showtime announcers were shocked at the scores for Cloud.

"This is a f**king disgrace. I'm sitting there at [Muhammad] Ali's birthday party dinner, watching this. He was dominating the fight, it wasn't even close. The fight was was eight [rounds] to four or nine to three....it was a f**king disgrace. How could it be that everyone watching the fight sees it the same way but the judges? We wonder why we are so self destructive as an industry. I've had enough of this f**king sh*t. These f**king judges should be put to task. There should be a competency test and if they can't pass it - they should be out," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

"Campillo should be champion - he won that motherf**king fight. That wasn't just a disgrace...it was a f**king disgrace. I was walking around the back of the room at this dinner, telling people 'I got a new champion, I got a new champion.'  And then I heard those motherf**king scores. I've had it! This is the most self-destructive industry in the world. We can't put together our own Super Bowl and the judges are Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder."

"Cloud is not a world champion now. Cloud is a beltholder. If [Showtime Sports President] Stephen Espinoza is the man that I think he is, then Campillo will get back on Showtime first in a big fight - because he won the fight and he's the real champion."

Editor's Note: DiBella promotes Campillo in a partnership with Samspon Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing LLC.

Don't worry Lou I am sure Showtime will put Campillo first on Showtime. Don King has Cloud and he only fights like once or twice a year. I had Campillo winning this fight by three rounds. Judging in boxing needs…
