By Paul “Paparazzi” Jones: Rarely are boxing fans treated to a fight of the year and upset of the year candidate with a controversial ending on the same night, let alone in the same fight. This kind of ‘March Madness’ is often reserved for upsets by a Cinderella team who runs deep into the NCAA basketball tournament.
