World Boxing Council Hopes For Mandatory Instant Replay

The World Boxing Council believes that an instant replay rule must be mandatory in all fights. The implementation of this rule, as well as the timely and apt decision of the Boxing Commission of the State of Mexico, was used during a card that took place recently at the World Trade Center Mexiquense. The rule was instrumental in helping render justice during the fight between Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano and Colombian Fernando Angulo.

Initially it appeared that there was a clash of heads that caused a deep cut between Cano's eyes, just above the bridge of his nose. The cut was so bad that it couldn't be staunched and the fight was stopped in the ninth round. However, the instant replay clearly shows it was a terrific straight right from the Colombian, which inflicted the slice damage, and it was a perfectly legitimate blow, which earned him the deserved TKO victory.

This rule avoided an unfair result clearly showing its unblinking accuracy, immidiacy, impartiality and great value.

Should have been standard in fights decades ago.

Always a good call. I was waiting for this to be implemented since last year.

I'm all for this...definitely all for this. Of course as long as its between rounds for low blows and headbutts that lead to cuts.. How about we include a mandatory for all champions that if they want to remain champion…
