ORnot of the Most controversial KO in boxing history appeared last Saturday during the fight between Ruben ‘Ace’ Torres and Cristián Baez, within the ‘Path To Glory’ event held in California, United States.
During the seventh of ten rounds, Baez stumbled over the ring. Seconds after getting up and bumping his opponent’s fist, he received a left hook that left him dead.
“They always say to protect yourself at all times. This is boxing and fighters like me are always on the attack. The referee gave the signal to start fighting again and I came out with guns blazing, especially after I knocked him down. I hit him with a left hook and that was it. the fight was over,” Torres said in words taken up by ‘Boxing Scene’.
In social networks, the debate remained open: while some users claimed that the action had been dirty and not fair, others took the ‘Ace’ stance for granted because boxing allows no distractions.
