BOXER SUSPENDED: Iowan Suspected Of Faking Knockout
An Iowa boxer is suspended from fighting in North Dakota for allegedly taking a dive in a fight against a former NFL player.
Cedar falls native Nicholas Capes stepped into the ring with former Minnesota Viking Ray Edwards on Saturday. The fight didn’t last long, just 13 seconds to be exact.
A video shot by a fan in the crowd shows Edwards throwing a punch and missing, but Capes collapses to the ground and takes the knockout.
The promoter says Capes was a last minute replacement and was fighting out of his weight division.
Capes hasn’t commented on the fight or his suspension.
