Across the pond, there was an interesting bout between Guillermo Rigondeaux and Moises Flores, on Saturday night.

The Cuban fighter, Rigondeaux, was making a defence of his WBA junior bantamweight title against the Mexican, Flores.

The fight didn?t last long but ended in controversial style.

Rigondeaux managed to knockout Flores in the very first round.

However, the classy Cuban?s win was thrown into doubt when television replays showed that one of the punches that contributed to the knockout was landed after the bell had sounded.

The commotion that followed saw Rigondeaux?s win upheld after a lengthy review.

But, following hot-on-the-heels of Andre Ward?s controversial stoppage of Sergei Kovalev, courtesy of a low blow, it hasn?t been the best of weekends for boxing has it?
