But replays showed that Lowe only lost his balance.

Australian boxing great Jeff Fenech said Taukeiaho was incorrectly awarded the knockdown.

“It definitely shouldn’t have been a knockdown,” he said on Main Event.

Commentator Paul Kent also disagreed with the decision.

“This was disappointing,” he said on Main Event.

“I understand how the referee made a mistake here, but this was not a knockdown. Jaiman Lowe simply caught himself off balance.

“You can argue he did take a brush to the head … but clearly he just overbalanced and lost his way.”
