Franklin was hit low; fighters falling out of ring curiously absent from TV show

The much-anticipated Christian Fulgium-Darrell Wood fight, featuring a table-crashing exit by both fighters was NOT part of the "Forces of Destruction" show on TV. Due to creative editing, the bout was skipped altogether.
Hmmm, that seems a bit fishy. No ... A LOT fishy.
The other main attraction was to be the Blake Franklin-Nick Reed bout that sent Franklin to the hospital with a ruptured testicle.
Franklin's claims were supported by the video tape. Reed accidentally delivered a straight left foot to Franklin's groin early in the first round. The immediate reaction by Franklin made it overwhelmingly obvious he indeed was stunned with a low blow.
The shot buckled Franklin to his knees and Reed momentarily took Franklin's back and then turned him over on the ground and went to town.
It will be interesting to see what the state's boxing and wrestling commission does with Franklin's appeal.
