NELSON SHOWS CHIN DURING TELEVISED BOUT

Referee Mark Nelson of Maplewood, MN brushed off an accidental punch while in the line of duty last night on an NBC televised fight card. Nelson was refereeing a bout between super middleweights Hugo Centeno Jr. and Maciej Sulecki when he was caught by a hard shot from Centeno Jr. after separating the fighters. Nelson’s ability to take what’s being called “the punch of the fight” had the announcers and viewers talking as he smiled off the incident afterwards, seemingly unfazed. The video can be seen below.
