2011-05-05 : Carson Jones 146 lbs beat Michael Clark 146 lbs by TKO at 1:53 in round 2 of 12


  • Clark allegedly entered the ring wearing a football cup instead of a boxing foul protector. Carson hit him slightly below the belt line and because Clark wasn't wearing a proper cup he developed a swelling or a whelp on his groin. The commission at the time ruled it the same as if it was an accidental headbutt and called the fight a no contest. The rules state, however, that if a fighter is hit with an accidental low blow he has five minutes to recover and if he can not continue, the victory is awarded to the opponent.[1] After review, the no contest ruling was overturned, Jones was given the TKO victory and awarded the USBA Welterweight Title.[2]
