The Quebec Athletic Commission has changed Jonathan Goulet vs. Thomas Schulte to a no contest. Both Goulet and Schulte’s manager Sam Bean sent written requests to the QAC to have the decision overturned.
For those of you that don’t know what happened - let me fill you in. At TKO 28: Inevitable Goulet and Schulte battled on the canvas for the better part of the first round as Schulte was latched onto Goulet’s back. Late in the round the referee decided to stand the fight up and moments later Goulet charged forward connecting with a flurry of punches that sent Schulte to the canvas. The ensuing ground and pound was too much as Schulte was rocked but when the referee pounced to call the fight the bell had already sounded to end the first round. Goulet was declared the winner by TKO at 5:00 of the first.
If Goulet is able to beat Steve Vigneault at TKO 29: Repercussion, he will then rematch Schulte in what will be Goulet’s first title defense. I will try to get Goulet’s thoughts on the situation later today.
