Boxer Dakota Stone

Christy and Gloria's Bitching

Is a 'Bunch of Bull'

8/15/2011 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815_dakota_stone_christy_martin_ex_getty_2Dakota Stone, the boxer who defeated Christy Martin, thinks she whupped Christy fair and square -- and no matter what Gloria Allred says in a news conference ... the proof is on tape for everyone to see.

Dakota's manager Mathis Hill tells TMZ -- Christy was the crowd favorite, but not the clear winner -- and adds, "The ref only called the fight because Christy turned her back and ran from the fight to go to a neutral corner."

As for Christy and Gloria's news conference this morning ... calling the ref's decision to stop the fight sexist ... Mathis says "the whole thing is a bunch of bull."

Watch the fight clip below -- decide for yourselves.

It was a bogus call, but the call was made. Done and done.

So all the other bogus calls in MMA and boxing should then be overturned?

How about a number of NFL calls each week? NBA tickytack fouls against LeBron?

She did want to fight! She was probably just shaking it off and ready to continue..Don't the guys do the same thing??? YES!!!She was ahead with points. If the ref stopped the fight, she should have won!!! She didn't quit!!! Dakota Stone isn't arguing, she would have lost otherwise... Fair is fair!!! Even if you don't like this sport!!!

I've seen at a bare minimum 50 bad calls by a ref in boxing and mma matches over the years. Refs are human and make mistakes. Every fighter understands the rules going into a fight. I've never seen anyone whine about officiating with a press conference and a lawyer by their side! Geezus.

By the way, how old is this Martin fighter? I vaguely recall the name from way back in the early or mid 90's. Nice way to cap off her career by being remembered as the biggest whiny sore loser in fighting history.

Seemed like a bad call. I have never heard of a fight being stopped because someone has a broken hand. The comments about it being "over and done with" are incorrect; a fighter can appeal decisions made by the ref with the state athletic commission. I think going that route would be much more productive than becoming a laughing-stock by associating yourself with Gloria. I'm wondering how Gloria even makes money these days.

And this is why no one will ever take women's boxing seriously. I mean, really? This dumb idiot loses a fight so she hires a lawyer and cries sexism? Is she going to sue the girl in civil court because she broke one of her nails too? Sheesh. Way to make women look like cry-babies and giving critics great ammo against all women boxers.
