It was a bad night for just about everyone in Michigan with the exception of Courtney Burton.
The Michigan fighter benefited from questionable calls from the referee and a hometown decision to score a ten-round split decision over showboating journeyman Emanuel Augustus.
Granted Augustus' theatrics, gyrations and Jorge Paez impersonations were at times difficult to appreciate. Nevertheless, he did clearly land the cleaner, harder punches far more often than his opponent did, however, when it was over it was Burton's hand that was raised.
Courtney Burton scored a controversial and unpopular split decision win over Emanuel Augustus at the Walker Arena in Muskegon, Michigan on Tuesday night.
Augustus, 28-5-6(13), dropped Burton with a body shot in round four but the referee failed to take up the count. Augustus was also deducted a point in round nine.
