Gary Shaw on Judging and Officiating on HBO Card

By Victor Salazar

Despite promoting the two fighters who took defeat on this past weekend’s HBO card, Promoter Gary Shaw felt both of his fighters accounted for themselves well. In the co-feature, Shaw’s fighter Francisco Santana dropped a decision to Sadam Ali. His heavyweight Bryant Jennings suffered the same fate against Wladimir Klitschko. Though both his fighters suffered defeat, Shaw didn’t agree much with the scorecards.

“I though in Chia’s (Francisco Santana) fight could have been a draw,” Shaw told BoxingScene.com “He was the aggressor and landed good shots but the judges didn’t see it that way. In the Jennings fight, I don’t think the scores reflected the fight even though Klitschko won. But I’m proud of Bryant Jennings being that he’s only been fighting for 5 years to put on a performance like this. He made some new fans and is fan friendly and as Klitschko said he’ll give guys in this division a lot of trouble.”

In the main event for many of those watching felt referee Michael Griffin should have deduced a point from Wladimir Klitschko sooner than he did in the 9th round. Shaw says besides that, he felt the main event was officiating just fine.

“I thought Michael Griffin did a good job,” stated Shaw. “Would have I liked to see it earlier and could it have changed the ebb and flow of the fight? Yes, but I thought he did a good job throughout.”

But Shaw was outraged at judge Alan Rubenstein’s 100-90 card turned in for the Ali-Santana fight.

“I think he (Rubenstein) should turn in his judge’s card, that’s criminal. There’s very few fights that are 100-90 unless it’s a complete white wash and anybody who watches Chia Santana chase him around the ring, throw some great left hook. I don’t know as a promoter I can’t do anything about the judge’s scorecards.”

100-90 was an absolute disgrace. 97 - 93 I thought was still a little wide. That fight was very close IMO.

I too thought that Santana did better than was reflected in the scoring.
