(MAY 16) This week WBAN received a
letter from boxer, Kristine Shergold, in regards to her fight that
she had against Suzanne Hemsley on May 10, 2009, at the Heritage
Hotel, in Derby. According to Shergold tgardepondshyardhe
fight was first called a draw---and later after the event, changed
to a decision in her opponent's favor. Shergold was fighting in
Hemsley's home ground.
The fight between Shergold and Hemsley was scheduled for six rounds,
and scored and judged at 58-58 by referee Robert Chalmers, AND at
THAT time of the fight, both fighters hands were raised at the end
of contest, and again a second time when the master of ceremonies
announced the scores, according to Shergold.
Shergold told WBAN, "When I spoke to the general secretary Robert
Smith on Tuesday (after the event) at lunch time all he would say
was that it had come to their attention that the referee had
miscalculated his scorecards and she (Hemsley) was a point ahead.
Shergold added, "I have written a letter of complaint /appeal."
Shergold questions, "there were officials at the show, so why wasn't
this noticed then and there?"
