The Nevada State Athletic Commission explained Saturday's disqualification outcome to the welterweight fight between Brandon Rios and Diego Chaves. Referee Vic Drakulich disqualified Chaves in the ninth round, after a very dirty contest by both fighters. By that point, Drakulich had deducted two points from Chaves and one point from Rios. Both fighters, and their corners, were warned numerous times regarding the dirty tactics being used in the contest.

NSAC Chairman Francisco Aguilar: "I know no fan of boxing ever wants the referee to make a determination of a fight. However, there are circumstances and a point in time where the referee does have to get involved. You may not agree with it, but have to understand it and I have to explain it to you. Vic, early on, tried to set a standard with these fighters. This was not a boxing match, this was a brawl. Vic tried to get control of this fight by deducting the points, whether or not you agree those points were appropriate. He was attempting to get control."

"As the fight went on, he was losing that control and I don't think either corner had respect for the authority in that ring. That was my concern, when he want in there to lay down the law - they were not listening and the fight was disintegrating to a point where it could become dangerous. It is our responsibly as officials in that ring to take ownership of that ring, and that's what Vic did. He did speak to both corners. The corners knew what was coming. He gave notice to them. It wasn't a surprise action."

NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett: It was brought to Vic's attention that Mr. Chaves was allegedly gouging at the face of Mr. Rios, and the eyes and things of that nature, and that's an egregious foul. Vic didn't see it, the corner brought it to his attention. Vic went to the corner of Mr. Chaves and said 'I didn't see this, it was brought to my attention, but if you keep this kind of action up you will be disqualified."

"Then the round went ahead and kicked off, and as Chairman Aguilar stated, they got locked in close and [Chaves] threw an elbow to the throat or the forehead. We don't have 16 cameras to look at it, but from our vantage point but that's what Vic saw."

[QUOTE=Lou Cipher]none of this mmatters. All that matters is Bum Bum is a wrap.Freddie Roach couldn't even save this guy[/QUOTE] lol Rios won tho. And to be honest, he impressed me against a tough opponent who clinched him out of his preferred gameplan. Rios ate everything Chaves threw and wa...

"I didnt see the foul but ill take Rios' word for it and DQ you for it" How fcuking stupid can vic and the NYSAC be?

You cant clinch your way through a fight or at least you shouldnt be able to, clinching is technically illegal. That is why the ref breaks it up, you get warned and if you keep doing it you get dqued! This is not grappling this is boxing! He was starting to do what Abril did but this time the ref...

Referee was TOO INVOLVED, for no reason. Warning Chavez continued and letting Rios get away with hitting on every command to break was really unfair. There is no rule against CLINCHING, Rios was getting out hustled at his own game. If there was going be a DQ then call it a no contest cause you...

Vic only once gave a pause with a proper hard warning but was not specific to either fighter. But it was all right that Rios dug nis head and grinded in while Chaves initiated the clinch. Rios at times was holding too. When Rios can't be the bully he goes into biatch mode
