The fight was a rematch of WBA flyweight champion Joshua Franco vs former champion Andrew Maloney. In the first round Maloney peppered Franco with his powerful jobs that in the 2nd round the eye of Franco was closed. The referee ruled it a headbutt so the fight was declared a no contest. But Maloney's corner insisted that there was no head butt and the eye was closed due to the jabs of Maloney. The Nevada state officials reviewed the tape and it took them 26 minutes only to declare that they are not reversing the no contest rule of the referee. Maloney felt cheated.
