Social media reacts to ‘one of the worst calls ever’

THE boxing world is reeling after today’s controversial world title rematch between Joshua Franco and Andrew Moloney.

Five months removed from their first meeting, Moloney (21-1, 14 KOs) and Franco (17-1-2, 8 KOs) met in ‘The Bubble’ after the Australian surrendered his WBA super flyweight crown to the hard-nosed Texan in June.

This time around, the 29-year-old looked set to secure revenge in front of a global audience, with Franco suffering a swollen eye in the first round on the back of a Moloney jab.

Ultimately, the fight was called a no decision, despite lengthy discussions between referee Russell Mora, Robert Byrd, promoter Bob Arum and NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett.

As the dust settles on the controversial result, a series of media personalities and industry professionals alike took to social media to voice their opinions.
