Default Juan Carlos Burgos Demands a Rematch… Now

NEW YORK (JANUARY 21, 2013)—On the heels of Saturday night's controversial WBO Super Featherweight title bout that saw defending champion Roman Martinez receive a gift draw against Juan Carlos Burgos, Burgos promoters Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing are filing a request to the WBO for an immediate rematch.

The bout saw Burgos batter and get the better of Martinez for the duration of the twelve round fight yet only judge Waleska Roldan had the fight scored in favor of Burgos by a tally of 117-111. Somehow judges Tony Paolillo saw the fight for Martinez 116-112 and John Signorile had the fight even at 114-114.

Even before the scores were announced, the HBO broadcast team called into question about the judges as they had 9 combined title assignments with Signorile working his first title bout ever.

HBO Boxing Analyst Max Kellerman went as far to say to "Keep your eye on Paolillo" before the scores were even announced. Kellerman later said he "should not get an assignment on this level..."

The official punch stats showed a 286-193 advantage for Burgos with a 234-164 tally on power punches

HBO also ran a poll where fans sent in their thoughts on who won the fight and an overwhelming 84% of those who participated believed that Burgos should have been awarded the victory and title.

"Juan Carlos won that fight hands down and this week we will file for an immediate rematch", said Arthur Pelullo, CEO of Banner Promotions.

Continued Pelullo, "The kid worked hard and should be a world champion this morning. We just hope the WBO agrees with what the whole world saw and does the right thing by granting us this rematch".

Added Alex Camponovo, General Manager of Thompson Boxing, "The draw left Juan Carlos Burgos completely dejected and angry. We all felt the same way as his dream of becoming a champion turned into a New York nightmare. We hope the WBO does not punish a young man who has given everything to his craft since the age of 10 and joined the pros when he was 16 years old. An immediate rematch should be the only solution to a poor ending and I think Martinez's people and the champion himself know deep down that he did not do enough to retain the belt."

Below is a sampling of respected boxing media opinions on the fight:

- Mike Rosenthal of Ring Magazine: "This is what bothers me: Juan Carlos Burgos dreams his entire life of winning a major world championship, which so far had eluded him, and then earns that title by dominating the current champion in the ring. Then a bungling judge steals what should've been the greatest night of his career. That's what happened on Saturday, when Burgos clearly outboxed WBO lightweight titleholder Rocky Martinez but had to settle for a draw because of a horrible split decision. The rogue judge was Tony Paolillo, who somehow scored the fight 116-112 (eight rounds to four) for Martinez. The 114-114 score of John Signorile also is baffling. The biggest punches of the fight were the dozens of punishing body shots landed by Burgos. And, according to punch stats, Burgos landed 93 more overall punches and 70 more power punches than Martinez (286-193 and 234-164). That Paolillo and Signorile somehow failed to see that left Burgos (30-1-1, 20 KOs) on the wrong end of yet another injustice in boxing. Shame."



- Dan Rafäel of espn.com: 116-112 Burgos. "The 24-year-old Burgos (30-1-1, 20 KOs), however, seemed to carry the better of it. He used a hard, sustained body attack throughout the fight. Of the 234 power shots Burgos landed, 118 were to the body, according to CompuBox statistics. Burgos outlanded Martinez (26-1-2, 16 KOs) in 10 of the 12 rounds"



- Harold Lederman-HBO Judge: 117-111 Burgos. On the broadcast, Lederman was quoted as saying, "Burgos carried this fight. I don't know how you miss it”



- Doug Fischer of Ring Magazine: I scored 115-113 for Burgos.

-Steve Kim of Maxboxing.com: 116-112 Burgos

-Lem Satterfield of Ring Magazine: 115-113 for Burgos

- Kevin Iole of yahoo.com 115-113 for Burgos



With this much discord, the boxing world deserves redemption for this injustice. Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing eagerly await a response from the World Boxing Organization.

Doug Fischer, Kevin Iole, Lem Saterfield, and Steve Kim don't know how to score fights.

The most rounds you could give Martinez would be 3 and that is being EXTREMELY EXTREMELY generous.

Burgos was out right robbed and he deserves an immediate rematch and a investigation into thosejudges.

Fight's like this should qualify for automatic rematches(if not some kind of an immediate review by an independent panel)!

I feel really bad for Burgos, he definitely won the fight by a large margin. We need to find a way to hold these judges accountable.

On the bright side, Harold Lederman scored the fight accordingly for once.

I would love to have the idiot who scored this fight 116-112 for Rocky Martinez explain himself in front of a NYSAC panel. Either he is going to show that he is COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT or that he was paid off by someone. Those are the only two options. And I am really leaning towards the paid off option. I don't care how much of a newb you are, or how you have never judged a championship fight, or any of that bullshit. There is no way a judge could have had Rocky Martinez winning that fight.

Unless of course this idiot judge feels that the more you get hit or beat up, you get the points and not the other guy who is pounding on you.

Oh, and the piece of shit who scored this fight a draw should also be suspended indefinitely.

Well, I just wrote to the NYSAC and voiced my outrage at the incompetence of those two idiots. It's probably going nowhere, but at least I feel I did something. Anyone know how to contact those two idiots? I'd love to write them a little letter.

I've known Paolillo on a personal level. Doubt he was paid off. He is simply incompetent and has difficulty concentrating, specially when there are ring card girls nearby.
