    I also think this should be ruled a NC. Better to delete the fight from the annals of boxing history.

    Total candidate for worst fight of the year.

    It was a good fight but with an sloppy ending no quite professional but most likely unintentional and just because the way the Russian was grabbing. Parker, a technical and faster boxer, did quite right connecting very accurate right hand head punches in all the rounds with successful results in front of a rival bigger than him with a very reasonable record.

  • Olivier Veillette

    Problem with Dimitrenko is that he’s got no answer to Parker’s body shots other than grabbing the latter’s head. Should be a NC though. Not the first time Marlon B. Wright is involved in a strange decision like that.
