I am a fan of boxing and have been watching the sport decline due to rigging and cheating and Saturday, June 8, 2019, furthered the decline of the sport itself. Before this fight, I knew very little of fighter Ali Ahkmedov, so I decided to watch a few of his fights. As I watched, I witnessed the same illegal punching in almost every one of his fights. This fight wasn’t the first time a complaint was made about Ahkmedov illegally punching opponents in the back of the head and this fight against McDaniels showed that it wouldn’t be the last. McDaniel’s complained to referee Benjy Esteves in the 1st round about Ahkmedov illegally punching him in the back of the head and Ahkmedov was warned about it. In the 3rd round Ahkmedov continued to illegally punch McDaniels in the back of the head and despite being warned the 1st round for the illegal punches and Mcdaniels “Clearly” beating a count that should have never been, Ahkmedov was awarded the fight from the illegal shots. The fight was stopped by referee Benjy Esteves in the 3rd round in favor of Ahkmedov and McDaniels undefeated record (which he had worked so hard for) was taken away from him. I couldn’t believe it! Shortly thereafter reality hit me and I realized that McDaniels was already against all odds. Ahkmedov is promoted under GGG and that the event was about their fighters winning to create more hype and money and not about fair boxing and the heart of champions. Complaints of having smaller gloves and illegal punches is very consistent with GGG and his fighter Ahkmedov and should not be allowed to conflict the integrity of the sport. I believe that both fighters should be awarded the chance for a rematch that will be decided by boxing points and not the referee and promoter. What a year for New Orleans, first the Saints, now Mcdaniels.
