'Bam' Rodriguez And Eddie Hearn Criticise 'Incredible' Scores Favoring Juan Francisco Estrada

Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez described as “shocking” the scores that existed at the time of his stoppage of Juan Francisco Estrada.

Rodriguez, 24, recorded the finest victory of his career after producing one of his finest performance to recover from a knockdown to stop Mexico's admired Estrada, 34, in seven rounds.

He had also knocked Estrada down in the fourth round in the process of winning the WBC super-flyweight title, but having learned he was leading on only one scorecard, via a tally of 58-54, that another had the fight level at 56-56, and that the third had him losing 57-56, he said: “That’s pretty crazy. 

“I thought I was dominating the whole fight. Even the round I got dropped in I came back and finished that round pretty strong, so those scorecards were kind of shocking to me. 

“But, I mean, that’s boxing. That’s the way it goes. Good thing I got him out of there.”

His promoter Eddie Hearn added: “The Mexican judge gave ‘Bam’ two rounds, which is quite incredible out of six. It was a competitive fight, but Bam was dominating the fight. 

“He came back with a knockdown. Pretty much every card’s gonna be a 10-8 with that, even though he probably won the round outside of it. It started to get a little bit competitive, but to not have Bam winning the fight at the time of the stoppage is quite incredible.”
