A British boxing judge finds himself in hot water after using his cell phone during a fight he was called upon to rule on.
As reported by “World Boxing News”, images of Terry O’Connor were relayed on social networks showing him checking his cell phone during the eighth round of the duel between Lewis Ritson and Miguel Vazquez.
The official veteran then gave the fight to Ritson at 117-111, when his opponent seemed to have won instead.
Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has called for immediate action against O’Connor.
“If it’s a cell phone (and I assume it is), then the British Boxing Board of Control should immediately fire it.”
World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman seems to agree with Hearn.
“This image is extremely disturbing to anyone who is involved in boxing,” he said on Twitter.
