By Jhonny Gonzalez

The World Boxing Organization (WBO) is investigating the controversial twelve round draw between super featherweight champion Roman 'Rocky' Martinez and mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Burgos. The fight took place on January 19th at New York's Madison Square Garden. The scores were 116-112 for Martinez, 117-111 in favor of Burgos and 114-114 for the draw. Most saw Burgos as the winner.

"We did the same process for the fight between (Manny) Pacquiao (against Timothy Bradley). We send a video of the fight to five judges, whose identities will remain anonymous, and they will watch it and score," said WBO President Paco Valcarcel on the review process to Jose Sanchez.

"Then we will compare the scores of the three official judges, for analysis. By [this week] we will have an idea (for possible discrepancies). Then we send the report to the Championship Committee to take into consideration."

The WBO will either order a rematch or allow Martinez to take another match, likely with the next contender in line, Diego Magdaleno.

[QUOTE=MJ223]I know Magdaleno is itching for his title shot but I hope the WBO orders a rematch[/QUOTE] I hope WBO decides a direct rematch, and winner gets Magdaleno. Maybe have Magdaleno on the same card. :boxing:

[QUOTE=Cuauhtli.]he deserves an immediate rematch.[/QUOTE] Exactly. Burgos won the fight on body shots alone. :lame:

Something is wrong when give points to other guy everytime HE is hit. Just because Martinez took flush shots all night doesn't mean judges should reward him for that!! I guess if it was a fight between him and a truck, they would score it for him if he survived having his face smashed in!!!

[QUOTE=apocalypto]They should strip martinez he doesnt deserve to be called champion after his last two fights. They should rematch for the vacant belt[/QUOTE] They should strip Martinez and give it to Burgos, who won the fight
