Nick Lembo and NJACB issue public statement on Sean Salmon

Here it is:
    I have discussed this matter with Ohio Athletic Commissioner Bernie Profato today. Ohio has placed Sean on administrative suspension pending an October hearing. Although we do not have to honor the suspension, because is it not medical, we have chosen to do so. Promoter Lou Neglia has already been advised that Salmon needs to be replaced on the contest.Salmon will not be fighting on the Sept. 11 Ring of Combat in Atlantic City.

This is a tough spot. Basically, Salmon wasn't throwing the fight but he gave up and quit because he was scared of injury. That makes it sound not so bad. But, he deliberately lost a fight he could have won. That sounds much worse. At the same time, you know that there are a ton of fighters out there who give up because they don't want to take anymore abuse and although they are not really finished, they choose to give up an arm or not deliberately not fight back, etc.

I'm conflicted about this.

In Japan they would offer him the opportunity to kill himself out of pure shame. If you want to be a fighter then fight, PERIOD. If he had such a lucrative deal doing training thenm that is what he should have stuck with and left fighting alone for awhile. To throw a fight for any reason is despicable. I hope he learns from this and comes back ready to be a man.

Yeah, the universe demands balance for a guy not giving it his all in some cage fight so it's ruining his whole life!

Are you kidding me...in Japan they would love him. Slamon is their kind of fighter, anyone who will throw a fight will have a career in Japan.

All this bullshit about him throwing the fight is taking credit away from Allan Weickert the guy who beat him far and square. How do you people posting these comments think he feels about all this? Everybody seems to be discrediting his win over Salmon now because Sean wants to go and be a complete dousch bag.

No. He fucked up and deserves whatever punishment he gets.

So based on this what should happen to Mike Tyson for his fight with Kevin McBride? He himself said he only fought because he needed the money and wasn't really looking to win.
