Immediately after Cornelius “K-9” Bundrage successfully defended his IBF junior middleweight title on “ShoBox: The New Generation” with a seventh round TKO over Cory Spinks at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, discussion centered on whether his performance vaulted him into consideration as a potential opponent for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th.

A second storyline developed after the fight though when it was learned that Bundrage was losing on two of the three judges cards at the time of the stoppage in a fight he was in firm control of throughout, including a first round knockdown of Spinks. Amazingly, judges Gwen Adair and Robert Byrd had Spinks winning four rounds to two (57-56 Spinks), while the third judge Fernando Villarreal gave three rounds to each fighter (57-56 Bundrage).
