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…

McDonnell won the fight. Was not impressed by Ceja. Looked smaller and slower all fight.

This idiot should STFU because McDonnell won that fight no questions asked. 116-112 I had it.

The 118-110 card was ridiculous but the 114-114 was unfair as well imo, so fair decision. There were a lot of close, competitive rounds but McDonnell clearly got the better of them.
