After a feeling out process in the first round, the headbutt in the second round caused a nasty cut above the right eyebrow of Truax. The ringside doctor wanted to call off the fight but gave Truax’s corner the chance to contain the blood, which it ultimately could not do.
Out of the three nationally televised or streamed boxing cards to take place on April 13, this was the third fight in which a clash of heads resulted in a bout going to a No Decision. The heavyweight clash between Otto Wallin and Nick Kisner — as part of the Claressa Shields vs. Christina Hammer undercard — and a featherweight bout between Diego De La Hoya and Enrique Bernache — which served as the co-main event to Jaime Munguia vs. Dennis Hogan — both saw no winner due to headbutts.
No word yet on if there will be a rematch between Truax and Quillin, or else how Plant’s next challenger will be decided now.
