Writer: Acting, not boxing, led to Lorenzo win

Kevin Iole, who covers boxing for Yahoo! Sports, says that last Saturday's win by Francisco Lorenzo over Humberto Soto was more of an acting win than a boxing victory. Lorenzo won by disqualification. But he was not awarded the WBC super featherweight title belt, because the instant replay shows the win came about "with an acting job the likes of which haven't been seen since Jack Nicholson in 'As Good As It Gets' in 1997," Iole says.

Have your own questions about Soto's disqualification? Or do you have questions about the boxing match and Ultimate Fight Championship matchups this weekend in Las Vegas?
