Golden Boy files WBC protest

Golden Boy Promotions has filed a protest with the WBC over the ruling of technical knockout after GBP fighter Bernard Hopkins was unable to continue in the fight last Saturday due to an injury he sustained after being pushed down by Chad Dawson. The WBC is reviewing the video of the WBC light heavyweight world title bout, which was held in Los Angeles, California, and is communicating with the WBC Board of Governors to render a decision that is strictly in accordance with the regulations.

“A boxing commission can make independent decisions regarding results, but the World Boxing Council, exclusive and worldwide registered owner of its trademark WBC, must take charge of the world title results that only correspond to the organization,” said WBC President Jose Sulaiman. “We think that by the end of this week, we will have the result of the world voting regarding this matter.”
