ALA Boxing standout "Prince" Albert Pagara suffered the first loss of his career in brutal fashion, Saturday evening, getting knocked out by Cesar Juarez early in the eighth round of their WBO Intercontinental Super Bantamweight title bout at Pinoy Pride 37.
Prior to the knockout however, it appears that Pagara was ahead on points, according to the judges scorecards.
Coach Edito Villamor posted the official scorecards on his Instagram account, and it showed that two of the three judges had the fight going in favor of the Pinoy.
According to the scores, had the fight ended after the seventh round, Pagara would have won a majority decision, with judges Susan Gitlin and Michael Tate scoring the fight in favor of the 22-year old, while judge Kermit Bayless had it even at 66-66.
Fortunately for the relentless Juarez, he didn't let it go to the hands of the judges.
