Bout Summary

Darchinyan dropped Gorres in the first round, which appeared to be a slip by Gorres when replayed. The crowd was upset with the referee calling the slip a knockdown and began to pelt the ring with bottles, water, coins and other objects. Gorres came back in the second round to floor Darchinyan with a right hand. Darchinyan seemed shaken, but clearly beat the count, which again prompted some fans to pelt the ring with objects. Gorres was knocked down in the fifth round, but the referee ruled it a slip. A clash of heads in round six opened up a bad gash on Gorres. In the ninth round, Darchinyan connected with a right hand, sending Gorres down for the second time. Gorres would fall to the canvas on at least three other occasions in the final three rounds, with the referee ruling all of them slips. After the bout, Vic Darchinyan's New Jersey based promoter, Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Promotions, along with some others at ringside, called for the permanent banning of referee Lance Revill from boxing after what they categorized as the worst refereeing performance ever seen. Referee Revill was a last replacement for Australian referee John Wright. A better view was what had been a beautifully matched bout, owing to the referee's poor performance, was allowed to turn ugly.
