Terence Crawford starts slow but dusts Kell Brook with fourth-round TKO to retain WBO title

Joshua Franco and Andrew Maloney go to a no-contest. 

Before the third round started, referee Russell Mora refused to let Franco come out as his right eye was completely swollen shut. Mora said the damage was caused by an accidental headbutt in the first round when, upon replay, there was no headbutt to speak of.

After a long delay, the Nevada State Athletic Commission finally went to instant replay to where there was no clash of heads. Thirty minutes passed by and the head of the NSAC Bob Bennett and Robert Byrd declared they headbutted each other to cause the swelling.

It's pretty sad in this day and age that with technology at your fingertips, Bennett and Byrd still couldn't get right when the viewing audience and people inside the venue could see the obvious. 

Maloney was robbed of once again becoming a world champion. What incompetence by the NSAC, which has sadly become the norm for them when they used to be the gold standard of combat sports.
