LAS VEGAS — It took just one punch to end the fight.
The legitimacy of the connect is another matter altogether.
Guillermo Rigondeaux uncorked a devastating overhand left in an exchange well after the bell to signal the end of the opening round, and that was all she wrote.
Moises “Chucky” Flores took a step back, wobbled, and then fell down in a delayed reaction that seemed dubious.
After about 10 minutes of conferring between referee Vic Drakulich and Nevada State Athletic Commissioner Bob Bennett, it was ruled a legal blow and a first-round knockout victory for Rigondeaux at 2:59 of Round 1.
“He deserves an Oscar,” Paulie Malignaggi told RingTV.com. “You’d be out right when the punch lands. Because he took a second to go down like that, he’s acting. He even raised his right hand.”
