Mauricio Herrera claimed a fifth-round technical decision over Hank Lundy after an accidental clash of heads stopped the contest.
The 35-year-old has come out the loser in many controversial decisions but this Saturday was given the decision despite many feeling Lundy was more active.
The light welterweight claimed the NABF title and called out Argentine Lucas Matthysse afterwards, his opponent Lundy felt extremely hard done by airing his displeasure post fight.
"He couldn't handle my speed, my power or my skills so he was holding and doing a bunch of other dirty stuff, Lundy was quoted as saying by Fightnews.com. "I know I won the fight and I was ready to take him out if it kept going”.
Mauricio Herrera was rocked in the second round but composed himself in the later rounds before the ref called a halt to the fight after the head clash.
The future for both fighters is not any clearer after Saturday's fight.
A rematch would be the best option for Lundy, whereas a Matthysse showdown for Herrera would generate interest but may not excite with 'El Maestro's” defensive style.
In a red hot division both fighters are looking to get to the top but after Saturday's conclusion, there needs to be a definitive answer in who is the better boxer.
A rematch is pending.
