Andrew Maloney just got robbed of his a belt that should be his. There is no doubt about it. Maloney was going for the welterweight championship belt. Maloney was facing Joshua Franco, and the bout ended in a controversial no contest. The referee called an incident head butt. The only problem? There was never a head butt. Watch ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas rant about the decision.

Teddy Atlas says he’d like to get out of this business altogether but has no where to go. “Where am I gonna go?” he asks.
While the refs claimed there was a head butt, Maloney does not agree.
“I seen it,” Moloney told ESPN’s Bernardo Osuna after exiting the ring. “I hit him with a jab early in the first round … and I hit him another 50 times. That’s why his eye’s shut, not the head-butt. There’s not a head-butt. … I can’t believe they took this away from me. I trained my ass off for the last five months, I’ve been away from my family, and they just take it away from me like this.”
I’ll let you be the judge… do you see a head butt in here? It sure looks like Maloney busted up Franco’s eye with this jab.
