Andrei Stoica's Win Overturned; Apologizes for Racist Comments

  • Written by Dave Walsh

We've received word from Super Kombat's press team that the controversial decision between Andrei Stoica and Redoun Cairo has been overturned by Super Kombat's team after they evaluated the score cards. At the request of Eduard Irimia the review happened and the bout has been declared a "No Contest." The score cards for the fight were 29-29, 29-29 and 30-29 in Stoica's favor. Since Stoica would need a majority to be declared a winner, Irimia noted that this bout should have gone to an extension round, instead Stoica was declared the winner in haste.

They have also confirmed that the two will meet again at a future date for Super Kombat.

On top of this, Stoica's remarks post-fight were... crass to say the least, as well as uncalled for. During a post-fight interview, Stoica, while explaining his opponent, used the dreaded "n-word" to describe him. Super Kombat officials have urged him to make a public apology. His defense is, apparently, that he has black friends and was just joking, as well as has bad english.

"I want to ask for forgiveness again. There was an error of expression because not speak good English. In addition, two of my best friends are black. I'm not a racist."
