O’Shaquie Foster’s Manager Unhappy With The Decision Loss Against Conceicao

Keith Mills, O’Shaquie Foster’s manager, is unhappy with his fighter’s loss to Robson Conceicao.

Foster lost his WBC Super Featherweight Title via a split decision, as Conceicao won on the cards: 116-112, 115-113, 116-112. The result drew mass backlash due to the overall perception of the fight. Foster avoided getting hit while countering his opponent to keep him at bay. Compubox showed that Foster landed 25.1 percent of his punches, while Conceicao only connected with 10 percent. The mass disparity in the stats left Foster unhappy. 

“I thought it was shutout. I don’t know. I don’t know, man. I thought it was easy. I thought it was an easy fight. I didn’t get touched except with a headbutt. I don’t know, man. I’ll be back. But I want the rematch. They stole this from me. They stole this fight from me. I just wanted to show the world I could bang it out, and if I want to, I don’t have to get touched. I guess it wasn’t good enough for the judges,” Foster said

Mills had reservations about the standard of judging. One of the judges, Tony Lundy, only oversaw one title fight. That was when Amanda Serrano knocked out Calista Silgado in the first round during a WBO Featherweight Title clash. While Foster was the champion fighting on a Top Rank show, with whom he is signed, he somehow came up short.

“When I heard the first score they announced, 116-112 Robson – OK, I learned to stay cool in that moment. I was positive that the next two scores would be a landslide for Shock, because sometimes in boxing the first judge is a shocker. But then the next two are what you come to expect. We thought we were going to walk away with an easy majority decision. Where do you find four rounds to give to Robson,” stated
