Bizarre end to wild fight. With what was approx. 10sec left in the 10th and final round Olajide throws a grazing punch at Milton that made Milton spin off balance while also turning his back and stumbling away from Olajide. Olajide proceeded to chase the defenseless Milton down from behind looking to finish him off but referee stepped in-between and immediately waived fight off..seconds later the bell clearly can be heard ringing to end round. From all observations the referee clearly looked like he had just waived fight off awarding Olajide the victory on a tko stoppage before bell rang to end bout. Olajide naturally then raised his hands in victory! It was then confirmed several minutes later that the round had apparently ended and that the referee was simply stepping in to stop bout thus allowing bout to go to score cards. Olajide's corner was outraged and there was a small riot outside the ring with spectators throwing beer and debris into ring even though the crowd was pro Milton.
