Andre Dirrell’s Uncle Sucker Punched His Opponent In The Ring After A Disqualification

05.20.17 2 years ago


Andre Dirrell won the interim IBF super middleweight title on Saturday night in Maryland under dubious circumstances after his opponent, Jose Uzcategui, was disqualified due to a punch after the bell that sent Dirrell to the canvas at the end of the eighth round. While the end to the fight was crazy on its own, what happened after the decision was announced in Uzcategui’s corner.

Dirrell’s uncle, Leon Lawson, serves as one of his trainers and was incensed by the late punch and, after Dirrell had already come over and spoken with Uzcategui and all seemed to be well, threw a wild sucker punch that tagged Uzcategui and incited a near riot in the ring.
