Originally, Resto won a unanimous decision. The New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) ordered the result changed to "No Contest" following charges that Resto's gloves had been illegally tampered with before the bout by Resto's trainer, Panama Lewis.
As a result of this bout, in October 1986, Resto was convicted of assault, conspiracy, and criminal possession of a deadly weapon (his fists). He served 21/2 years of a three-year sentence. Both he and Lewis were banned from boxing for life.
