Shaw To Protest Darchinyan-Gorres Result

By Mark Vester

According to the AAP, promoter Gary Shaw will file an official protest with the IBF over the officiating during Saturday's bout between Vic Darchinyan (29-1-1, 23KOs) and Z Gorres (27-2-2, 15KOs) in Cebu City in the Philippines. The IBF super flyweight eliminator was scored a draw by the three judges. Shaw says the referee and the judges were overwhelmed by the hostile Filipino crowd that threw bottles and objects into the ring during the fight. Darchinyan's trainer Billy Hussein was hit in the head by a plastic bottle at the end of the fight.

Filipino judge Jonathan Davis scoring it 114-112 to Darchinyan, Thai judge Montol Suriyachand had Gorres ahead 113-112, and Australian judge Cec Perkins had the draw at 113-113.

Darchinyan knocked Gorres down in the first and ninth rounds, but Gorres also had some moments when he scored a knockdown in the second. Darchinyan's camp are up in arms over New Zealand referee Lance Revill, who they claim made crucial mistakes such as ruling two additional knockdowns of Gorres as slips.

"The referee had never done a world title fight outside New Zealand and I think he felt the pressure of the hostile environment in the first round (when bottles began to fly) and it affected the way he officiated the next 11 rounds, missing two clear knockdowns," Shaw said. "I think it also affected the Thai judge who scored the 10th and 11th rounds (for Gorres) which were clearly Vic's rounds on the scorecards of the other officials, he was the dissenter."

"I don't know how the Australian judge could see the fight even. I think he may have been feeling the environment as well."

The winner was going to fight IBF super flyweight champ Dimitri Kirilov. Gorres suffered a bad cut from a clash of heads and may not be ready to fight in the near future if a rematch is ordered by the IBF. Shaw says that Darchinyan should fight Kirilov with Gorres facing the winner.

"I have to speak to the IBF, I don't know what the rules and regulations are with a mandated rematch," Shaw said. "Maybe the fact that Vic is ready to go and Z Gorres is hurt, he's got a cut and a pretty bruised face, then maybe they will allow us to fight Kirilov as an interim title fight. Then if we win, we would agree to fight Z Gorres right back."

The Filipino Judge scored it in favor of Darchinyan. The Australian Judge had it 113-113 draw. The Thai Judges had it for Gorres. If Shaw is going to protest he should aim it at the Australian and Thai Judge.
