May 5th – Disastrous reffing from Jerry Cantu in round four of Ryan Martin-Breidis Prescitt, ruling what would have been a body shot knockout for Martin a low blow.
Paul Butler suffered a Wright-Trinidad (or Tete-Butler!) esque schooling from Emmanuel Rodriguez.
The two rounds scored to him from Carlos Colon were pure charity.

May 12th – Rey Vargas was helped to victory in his hard-fought title defence against Azat Hovhannisyan by the unrealistically wide cards of Don Trella (117-111) & Kevin Morgan (118-110).
May 19th – At the big show in Elland Road soccer stadium, the timekeeper fucked up big time.
Nicola Adams-Soledad del Valle Frias was set for ten two-minute rounds, but the end came with 2:59 on the clock in round one (Adams the ko winner) due to the timekeeper failing to ring the bell.
This is as grossly unprofessional as it gets.
Surely this must go down as a no contest, but there’s no indication so far that this will be the case.
The main event was a shock as Josh Warrington appeared to dominate Lee Selby for a fairytale win.
Alan Davis’ ridiculous 115-113 for Selby threatened to spoil the celebrations. A truly horrible card.
May 26th – Raul Caiz Sr. committed the error of incorrectly ruling a body shot knockdown as a low blow in round 4 of Kal Yafai’s win over David Carmona.
The multi-knockdown brawl finally ended with a corner retirement after seven rounds.
