Bitey Redkach Banned And Fined By NYSAC
While Danny Garcia took being bit by Ivan Redkach in-stride last weekend, but the New York State Athletic Commission has decided to take their pound of flesh.
On Wednesday the commission came down heavy on the 33-year-old fighter for trying to make a meal out of Garcia in the midst of his unanimous decision loss to the former champion inside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
“The New York State Athletic Commission is taking the following disciplinary action against Mr. Ivan Redkach for biting Mr. Garcia’s shoulder during the eighth round,” a NYSAC rep told Bad Left Hook’s Michael Woods.
Mr. Redkach was issued the maximum fine of $10,000 for engaging in dangerous, disorderly and unsportsmanlike conduct.
Mr. Redkach’s license as a professional boxer is suspended for a year.
Mr. Redkach’s purse from the bout shall be forfeited and paid to the Commission.
Mr. Redkach has the right to challenge these penalties if he so chooses with a formal hearing.”
