I mean there's no question Loma dominated the fight, but Rigo is by far the much smaller man and it takes two to clinch. Almost every single clinch was a CLEAN clinch. It's the referee's job to break them up. Not say "Fight out hands free" when 4 arms are locked across two bodies, no sh*t the MUCH larger man in Loma is going to have the advantage in that scenario.

Not only that, then Loma clearly hit Rigo like 10 seconds after the bell sounded in one of the rounds with a clean punch right in the referee's face and the referee didn't say anything. The immediate next round, a clinch is initiated and the ref doesn't break them, then when Loma manhandles Rigo to break free to do the referee's job for him - the referee decides to pull Rigondeaux aside and take a point. The refereeing in that fight was absolutely abysmal, there was literally nothing Rigo could do.

I don't know about his hand but I barely saw him use it and that is definitely his money punch, so if there is any indicator something was wrong with it that would be it.
