I dn't think so. They were both just heat of the moment type actions. However, one was actually physical, while the other was just words. . .
I think the bigger impact is only punishing a man who put hands on a ref for three months. This sends the message that a boxer can get away with putting hands on a referee if they feel they were done wrong.
