WBC's Sulaiman Looks To Reprimand Donaire-Montiel Ref

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The President of the he World Boxing Council (WBC), Jose Sulaiman, is planning to send a letter to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to reprimand referee Russell Mora, who worked last Saturday's fight between bantamweights Nonito Donaire and Fernando Montiel. The WBC will complain that Mora should have stopped the fight when Montiel was dropped in the second round, and instead exposed the fighter to suffering further injury by allowed the bout to continue for a moment longer.

"It was a fateful decision, a criminal act. Montiel was in a poor state and after telling him walk to it and he does not, and after asking him to raise his arms and he do not, he still allows him to continue," Sulaiman told Sal Rodriguez. "We are going to send a letter to the commission to put him (the referee) in training before placing him in another championship fight. We will object to this referee whenever we can."

one thing I could say about Mora is that MOST refs at least speak a broken spanish... I don't know if he is bilingual but most of the time refs know going into fights to talk to fighters in that…

[QUOTE=Lorily;10162355]I don't think the ref was wrong for not stopping the fight after Montiel was knocked half unconsious, and he DID get up before the count ([U]that[/U][B] was giving the champion the benefit of the doubt), so that was fair…

[QUOTE=Ray*;10164884][B]The fact that the ref dived in immediately when Montiel took two minor punches shows he how perfect that referee was, No complaints at all.[/B][/QUOTE] I agree. That's exactly what I was saying. Sure the fight could have been stopped…
