31 Aug

Joshua Buatsi put on an impressive display and won by vicious knockout on Saturday night, but his opponent wasn’t happy with the finish.

Ryan Ford put up a tough test and lasted seven rounds against one of the UK’s top prospects, though eventually went down after a punishing onslaught.

However, replays showed that the decisive blow that saw the Canadian sink to the canvas came from a low shot and the beaten man complained about this in his post-fight interview.

The referee made nothing of Ford’s complaints and simply counted him out after he hit the deck.

Therefore, the result stood and Buatsi moved to 12-0 (10 KOs) regardless.
