Jackson Marinez: I Beat Romero 9-3 in Rounds, Not Sure What The Judges Were Watching

Dominican boxer Jackson Marinez is still furious over his twelve round decision loss, from this past Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, at the hands of Rolando Romero.

Marinez lost his unbeaten record and Romero walked away with the WBA's interim-lightweight title.

But fans were outraged over the scores - with the vast majority of viewers tabbing Marinez as the clear victor.

Marinez, after reviewing the fight, felt Romero won no more than three rounds in the contest.

“I saw the fight nine rounds to three. I don't know what the judges were watching, one of them even had me losing by a lot [118-110]. The referee also treated me badly, he put his hand on my stomach, he pushed me as it was seen in the fight, he pushed me a couple of times. He was not giving attention to the things that [Romero] did with his elbow, things that he explained to us in the dressing room that we should not do," Marinez told ESPN Deportes.

"The world of boxing, everyone who knows what good boxing is, observed what happened [on Saturday] night.... they saw that the decision that was not in accordance with the fight I made. We are going to continue with more faith and more strength."

Marinez's manager, Jorge Herasme, shared an appreciation similar to that of his boxer and additionally commented on the immediate future of the athlete.

“We had a pretty strict preparation and the results were seen. It is sad, really, that a fighter like Jackson Marinez, who is very disciplined and who has been in boxing for almost 20 years, sees his dream cut off by a bad decision or as you can think.. the dark hands were behind everything to favor a person who did not have the merits," Herasme said.

"[Marinez] feels a little disappointed and we don't know how an athlete could react to a decision like this..... the disappointment. So hopefully a precedent can be set because the world of boxing spoke with one voice and what it says is that it does not want things like this to happen again. Regardless of your nationality, where you come from, economic power or if you represent money for the business, what we want is that whoever wins their fight it should not be taken away from them."

[QUOTE=Kannabis Kid;20712570]There was no anti-doping tests for this fight either and Romeros team refused to test when they were asked to by Marinez team sounds like whatever measures necessary.[/QUOTE] No anti-doping for a world title fight?!
