Badou Jack accidentally hit his second official this past weekend.
Badou Jack is a great boxer. He’s won world championships in two weight classes and has a 22-1 record. During a fight against James DeGale last year he accidentally hit the referee, knocking him off balance. It was an accident and a pretty clean shot to boot. The referee soldiered on and Jack won the fight.
Fast forward to Saturday night, Badou Jack was facing Adonis Stevenson for the WBC Light Heavyweight championship and just like Britney Spears, oops….he did it again. As the referee moved in to separate the fighters, Jack threw a punch that landed right to the nose of referee Ian John Lewis. Lewis reacted momentarily and then got back to business. You can see the videos below of both incidents. It’s time for referees in Jack fights to get hazard pay.
