An error in scoring occurred at Shark Fights 15 in the main event fight between Joey Villasenor and Chris Camozzi , and the New Mexico Commission is scheduled to review the cards and rule on an official decision.

The New Mexico Athletic Commission has informed both fighters that a judging error was made on the scorecards for their fight, which on the night of the bout was ruled a draw, and they have added the item to the agenda during their commission meeting on June 14 to resolve the matter.

Villasenor and Camozzi battled to a split draw during their fight on May 27 with the judges’ scorecards reading 29-28 for Villasenor, 29-28 for Camozzi, and 29-29 as a draw.

The commission has stated that an error occurred in the addition of the scorecards and they have added the item to the agenda for their June 14 hearing to finalize the totals in the fight. Representatives from the New Mexico Athletic Commission confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that the agenda will include this in discussion and they will have a final ruling at that time.

Following the fight, Villasenor says that his opponent Chris Camozzi approached him and gave him the win, despite the judges rendering it a draw.

“Chris actually came over to me and told me that I had won the fight,” Villasenor told MMAWeekly.com after the fight ended. “He didn’t agree with the decision. I think that’s awesome of him. He gave me some kind of relief there.”

The commission will hold a meeting and discuss the scoring error, and most likely will declare a winner in the Villasenor vs. Camozzi fight.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on the hearing results after June 14.
