(Boxing) Not-so-tasty: Humberto Toledo DQ’d for biting

If you didn’t watch ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights tonight, you didn’t miss much… until the end. Breidis Prescott manhandled Humberto Toledo in the main event (scheduled for 10 rounds). With Toledo losing virtually every round, he started bending the rules. First, he lost a point for grabbing the back of Prescott’s head. Second and most memorable, however, came a round later when Toledo bit Prescott’s left shoulder and left a vampire mark (two teeth punctures). The referee in the fight initially deducted two more points from Toledo and then issued a disqualification.

Within seconds on the ESPN2 telecast, both Teddy Atlas and Joe Tessitore brought up Tyson/Holyfield from a decade ago (the infamous ear-biting incident). Atlas pleaded for security to get into the ring and the referee urged both fighters to get out of the ring.

The fight took place in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Prescott is known for his quick win over UK star Amir Khan last September in Manchester. How lopsided were the odds going into the Prescott/Toledo fight? Prescott was a -4500 favorite.
