THE IBF have reacted to the absurd split decision result for Ryan Burnett over Lee Haskins at the weekend, acknowledging that there was an “error with the scorecards.”

Judge Clark Sammartino scored the bout 118-108 in favour of Haskins, who had been dropped twice, while Burnett was awarded two scores of 119-107.

It was later revealed that Sammartino had – somehow – got the two boxers mixed up, despite them both having their names on their shorts.
