Heavyweight fighter Frank Sanchez continued his incredible undefeated streak with another victory against Nagy Aguilera. The 28-year-old showed his class and dismantled his opponent in six rounds. The fight had a controversial ending as the crowd showed their disapproval as Nagy was accused of overacting.
Boxing journalist Dan Rafael tweeted, “He just out and out tried to get [one] over on the ref. He wanted out. Pathetic effort.”
Nagy Aguilera was down on the scorecards in the sixth round when a looping Frank Sanchez right hand hit his head. Holding the back of his head, Aguilera fell into the ropes, before hitting the deck. As the crowd booed, Aguilera rose to his feet, before stumbling back down.
However, fans questioned the legitimacy of the claims from Aguilera, as he appeared to go down a little later. Therefore, the fans questioned if it was a genuine claim or just a way out for the veteran.
Aguilera could be seen shouting out in agony with the heavyweight’s team calling for Sanchez to be disqualified.
He said, “That’s a f***ing foul. I told you he was going to do it. He did it the whole fight, it’s a foul, it was intentional. That’s what he does.”
Despite Aguilera’s best protests, Sanchez won the fight with a technical decision victory after the shot was ruled an accidental foul. The criticism came in fast as social media users logged on to tweet their dismay.
Kevin Iole, a columnist for Yahoo Sports tweeted, “This looks like a total acting job by Aguilera. That was bizarre. How does Aguilera stumble when trying to get up when he was hit on the shoulder? Total BS.”
