Referee Roger Barnor has taken a jab at some sports  journalists  who are questioning his  10th-round stoppage  of    last Sunday’s   IBO World Lightweight  title bout  between  Emmanuel  Tagoe and  Fernanado Saucedo which was staged  at the  Bukom Boxing Arena.
Barnor stopped the bout after  the Argentine boxer hit the canvas from Tagoe’s right-handed punch which landed behind his head.

In the tenth round, Tagoe drilled a straight right hand which hit the back of Saucedo’s head before connecting a left hook that sent the Argentine crashing to the mat for the third time.
Saucedo rose up to protest but referee Roger Barnor waved off the fight to hand Tagoe victory.
This decision did not sit well with some journalists who felt Saucedo was being fought unfairly by Tagoe.

Speaking to Asempa sports, Barnor took a strong swipe at these journalists saying , ”Our journalists need to learn the rules of the game, you can’t report on a game you don’t understand. There is no way you can report on a game you don’t know inside out”.
“One thing I would want to say is that we need journalists not just football journalists, but those that are all round”.

“I don’t know what they saw but the fight wasn’t above me at all; I was on top of my game and I did what I was expected to do”.
“I didn’t go there to entertain anybody but to do my job which I believe I did to the best of my ability”, he added.
Tagoe retained the belt and remains undefeated in 28 bouts.
