Here is all you need to know about boxing referee Harvey Dock along with his age and salary as he gets criticised by the fans and journalists on social media 

The super-lightweight champion Devin Haney was defeated four times by Ryan Garcia on Saturday, shocking the boxing world with his majority-decision triumph.

Garcia’s most valuable weapon was his left hook, which he used to floor Haney, the world champion who had not before lost, in the seventh, tenth, and eleventh rounds.

Meanwhile, the major storyline isn’t the win; rather, it’s how the referee ruined an incredible moment by stopping Garcia following the first knockdown. Even Stephen A. Smith joined the race of criticising the referee calling him “terrible.”

As the bout went on, Haney consistently closed the distance on his opponent, but Garcia lost a point for striking his opponent while they were on the break in the seventh round. Garcia’s knockdowns were insufficient to warrant a draw, so “King Ry” almost lost out on the point deduction.

A user wrote, “Harvey Dock literally just kept Haney in this fight. Didn’t call the second knockdow.”

Another wrote: “Ryan was robbed of a ko !! Harvey Dock SAVED Haney.”

On yser accusing of corruption, “It’s so awkward watching this fight. Very clear that Harvey Dock accepted money to get Devin Haney over. 100% obvious that Haney is not allowed to be knocked out. Taking the point was madness there. This is corruption in real time.”

Another user, “Harvey Dock with a great save . That was borderline corrupt.”
