Olympic French Boxer Refused To Leave The Ring For An Hour To Protest Getting DQ'd
© Andrew P. Scott-USA TODAY Sports
French boxer Mourad Aliev was disqualified in his super heavyweight quarter-final bout on Sunday. So, he refused to leave the ring for an hour. Per Reuters...
quote:

His opponent, Britain's Frazer Clarke, suffered cuts above on his face in what the referee deemed an intentional headbutt by Aliev, winning the match with four seconds left in the second round.

When the referee motioned for a stop, Aliev flew into a rage, kicking the mouth guard he had ejected from his mouth and making offensive gestures with his arms while pacing around the ring.

For the next half-hour, the Moscow-born pugilist remained planted at one corner outside the ring, then departed the arena after a word with a group of suited officials only to return about 15 minutes later to resume his sit-in.

quote:

"It's totally unfair," Aliev told reporters, per Reuters." "I was winning the match. I was just stopped without any warning and they just told me that 'you lost' - just like that. So I think it was an act of sabotage. ... "I prepared my whole life for this event. So getting mad for something like that is natural."

Olympic boxing has a long history of corrupt officiating.

Boxing does not have a ton of rules. The top 2 are no head butting and no hitting below the belt.
