Roman Gonzalez's Opponent Has Entire Purse Held Back

By Miguel Rivera

The poor effort by Manuel Jiminez (11-3) quickly caught the attention of the local boxing commission in Culiacan, Mexico. Jiminez was stopped in the first round on Saturday night in a non-title fight with WBA junior flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez (26-0, 16KOs).

After taking a few hard punches, Jiminez dropped down and refused to get back up and continue fighting. The fighter's corner was shouting for their man to get to his feet. During the first round action, Jiminez was barely offensive and presented the appearance of a fighter who arrived to collect a quick check.

Following the loss, the local commission, and the event promoter Zanfer, withheld Jiminez's purse for his non-existent effort in the ring.

Gonzalez will return to action on April 21, in Mexico, against former champion Ramon Garcia.
