Hitz calls for Bondorovas-Vera rematch

Bobby Hitz, promoter of Donatas Bondorovas has called for a rematch between his fighter and middleweight contender Brian Vera after Vera’s controversial TKO win on Friday night in Verona, NY.

“Referee Charlie Fitch stopped the fight prematurely and many observers feel that Donatas was robbed. I concur. I am so proud of Donatas and effort he put forth tonight. I like Brian Vera and I respect him as a fighter, but I feel we were winning and according to my team it was the language barrier which caused the stoppage, which is unfortunate. While the judges had Vera up when the fight was stopped, I disagree and I am confident that had they been allowed to continue Donatas would have been victorious. Obviously we want a rematch. Donatas deserves a rematch and the fans, many of whom were impressed with his ‘Friday Night Fights’ debut, deserve a rematch. We need to make this happen.”
