Bizarre stuff in the boxing ring today. Iranian boxer Ali Mazaheri was disqualified for some seemingly innocuous offences. According to the BBC,

He spent a few minutes standing in his corner of the ring, refusing to go to the middle so the referee could acknowledge (Jose) Larduet as the winner. Eventually he walked over to acknowledge the Cuban corner, before leaving the ring, ignoring both Larduet and the referee. "It was six of one and half a dozen of the other. It was a terrible refereeing display," says BBC commentator Richie Woodhall.
