Herrera was on his feet at the count of 7 after being knocked down and was asked if he could continue. Herrera nodded "yes" but a split second later the referee raised Martinez' hand and declared him the winner. Herrera lurched forward but the referee contained him. The ensuing conversation between Herrera and the referee was heard on the natonal TV broadcast. SOURCE: AP
