Nacho Beristain Rips The Judges of McDonnell-Ceja Clash
By Miguel Rivera
Trainer Nacho Beristain is very upset over Julio Ceja (24-1, 22KOs) twelve round majority decision loss to Jamie McDonnell (21-2-1, 9KOs) from last Saturday night at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster. McDonnell picked up the vacant IBF bantamweight title with scores of 118-110 and 115-113. The third judge scored it 114-114.
"We knew that the English judge was going to go out there and do something like that, but the Mexican judge was afraid of losing his work [in the UK] and he allowed himself to be manipulated. I am sure that if this fight was held in any part of the world - Julio would have won," Nacho said.
Nacho doesn't get it. When you fight a guy in his home town, you have to steamroll him to get a split decision. Scotland, Mexico, Germany, everywhere. Nacho should be glad his guy didn't leave town with serious health issues…Comment by ottocon860 on 05-16-2013
