Jack vs Bute results: Badou Jack retains belt on disputed majority draw

By Scott Christ

Badou Jack didn’t get the win he deserved, but he keeps his title and moves on to a unification with James DeGale.

Badou Jack appeared to have done enough early to make a late rally by Lucian Bute seem like too little, too late, but two of the three ringside judges saw the fight differently, and Jack retained his WBC super middleweight title via an unsatisfying and controversial majority draw.

Judge Stephen Rados of Maryland scored the fight 117-111 for Jack, while judges Glen Crocker of Texas and Omar Mintun Sr of Mexico both had it even, 114-114. BLH had the fight 116-112 in favor of Badou Jack.

Jack (20-1-2, 12 KO) did a lot of good work to the body, especially in the earlier rounds, outlanding Bute 107-23 in body shots over the course of the fight. He also dictated some rounds with his jab, and was able to keep Bute (32-3-1, 25 KO) from establishing a rhythm on offense, constantly forcing the Romanian-Canadian veteran to push the reset button.

The last three rounds, though, saw Bute up his output and look to get some serious work done, and we did give him rounds 10-12 on our card, as he was effective, found a home for his left hand, and was able to outwork Jack for the first time in the fight.

The decision, while leaving a bad taste in most mouths, does not derail the plans for Jack to face James DeGale in a title unification bout this fall, however. DeGale defeated Rogelio Medina in a tough fight on tonight’s card to retain his IBF belt. Bute says he’d like to rematch both of them, and declined to say which was the better fighter, saying it would be a 50-50 matchup.

Watch: Victor Ortiz gets stuff thrown at him by fans after fight

By Scott Christ

Victor Ortiz wasn’t a fan favorite after his loss tonight. Well, at least not this fan’s favorite.

Following his fourth round stoppage loss to Andre Berto earlier tonight, some fans — at least one — in Carson, California, were pretty upset with Victor Ortiz for whatever reason, and one even threw what appears to be a box at Ortiz as he walked backstage after the bout.

Here’s the video:

A mild fracas breaks out with security jumping in on the spectator in question, and Ortiz’s trainer, Joseph “Hoss” Janik squares up on the fan to protect his fighter, who was blindsided by the whole thing, obviously.

The response in the building when Ortiz was stopped was certainly not favorable, especially since it will be seen as him “quitting” again. The crowd was totally in his favor during the pre-fight introductions, booing Berto pretty heavily, as Ortiz had home field advantage in California.

In case it needs to be said, don’t throw things at fighters after fights. Or during. Or before. Or ever, really.
