Titsworth_vargas

On Saturday night at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California, Jesse Vargas was in the ring against Trenton Titsworth in a junior welterweight bout featured on HBO's Boxing After Dark program. Titsworth had two points deducted after kissing Vargas on the neck. Vargas won in a unanimous decision 39-34.

Well at least he didn't bite his ear off.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Kissing another man, apparently an unforgivable offense.

  2. He should get two EXTRA points for that!

  3. ...and as a society, we've had 80 points taken off our IQ for actually watching it.

  5. Well, he gets 100 points in my book for that kiss ... another 100 if he had dropped to his knees LOL!

    Temecula is quite conservative, i'm surprised there wasn't a riot...

  6. Well, like the ref said, they are there to box. I believe you can only touch your opponent with hands and arms.

  7. So ... punch a man in the face, gain points. Kiss him on the neck, lose points.

    Got it.

  8. Listen @ 2:17- “With a name like Titsworth, he’s lucky he didn’t feel him up.” – F-ing hilarious.

  9. Homophobia at its best.

  10. Damn, guys, not everything is an offense against homosexuality. A quick search on the internet lists these two rules:

    - You cannot hit below the belt, hold, trip, kick, headbutt, wrestle, bite, spit on, or push your opponent.

    - You cannot hit with your head, shoulder, forearm, or elbow.

    Technically he did a little of both, and therefore he was penalized. So let's calm down.

  11. I agree with Aaron. There's a time and a place for everything. The middle of a competitive sport is not the place for a kiss. Maybe after, but not during.

  12. Titsworth was losing so he decided to tease Vargas to piss him off and stop punching him. Aaron is absolutely right, not everything is about homophobia. If so why didn't the crowd start booing when the referee shouted "kissing". As Freud, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

  13. I agree with you Gwyneth, there is a time and place for everything. And, Luis is right he knew he was losing both the fight, (and consciousness) so he shocked and awed the morons watching, as well as his opponent. I just hope dinner, or at least flowers, followed.

  15. Am I the only person who thinks Titsworth sounds like a drag queens last name? If ever there was a good reason to learn to fight as a kid that last name would sure be a motivator.
