Joey Villasenor and Chris Camozzi fight to a draw

The New Mexico Athletic Commission has changed the decision in the Shark Fights bout between Chris Camozzi and Joey Villasenor.

The commission discovered a scoring error from the judges’ scorecards after the fights ended on May 27 at Shark Fights in Rio Rancho, N.M.

On Tuesday, they overturned the initial call for the bout, a draw, and declared Camozzi the winner by split decision.

MMAWeekly.com obtained the scorecards from fight night, and according to the score sheet, judge Robert Romero scored the fight 29-28 Camozzi, and judge Jenna Vasquez scored the fight 29-28 Villasenor.

Judge Mark Sanchez had the fight scored 29-29, which caused the fight to be a draw, but on the scorecard, it actually read that he had given Camozzi both rounds two and three, so it should have been 29-28 for Camozzi.

The fight has been switched by the commission and Camozzi has been awarded the victory.

It remains unclear at this time if Camozzi and Villasenor could ever face off on a rematch, but for now Villasenor’s focus is moving to welterweight where he will debut in September at BAMMA 7 against Che Mills.
