Juan Ma suspension vs. Sprott suspension - Makes no sense; TRAVESTY!
Ok, so Juan Ma, in the heat of the moment not long after losing a heartbreaking TKO at home to Orlando Salido, in what was a great back and forth WAR, says "the referee wasn't fair stopping the fight, he has a gambling problem."
He then quickly apologizes. . . Suspended for just shy of one year. Was he fined too? Can't remember.
Michael Sprott gets stopped (stoppage was bad, IMO), and then does something I have only seen in youtube videos - he puts hands on the ref, TWICE. Second time he kind of does like an up-jab/shove hybrid to this hugely undersized referee, who of course falls to the ground like a rag-doll. . . Ref wasn't harmed, though. And Sprott did apologize afterwards. .
But he is suspended only three months?
You'd think what Juan Ma did wouldn't even be penalized; especially since he apologized quickly. He just said words, though. While Sprott should have been flirting with a lifetime ban from the sport. Prolly not lifetime ban, but at least one year. Make him take a **** load of anger management classes.
