A bizzare incident happened in a boxing ring earlier tonight. This is probably the wildest boxing finish we’ve ever seen.
We’re talking about the boxing match between Luis Oritz and heavyweight rival Charles Martin.
From the very beginning the fight was action packed. Martin dropped the Cuban star twice early on. However Luis Ortiz rallied and made a stunning comeback to drop his opponent in the 5th round.
The American was also floored after his hand got caught within the rope. Referee ended the competition in spite of the boxer standing up in time.
Ortiz was delighted with the result.

“My corner reminded me to remain calm, just stick to my strengths and things would go my way. My message is for all of the heavyweights out there, If you want to fight for the title, you have to go through me.
“I knew this was going to be fireworks from the start. He dropped me twice; I finished him.”
The Cuban was down on the scorecards when the referee ended the match – the judges scored the exchanges at 48-45, 48-45 and 47-46 in Martin’s favour.
