Badou Jack and James DeGale settled for a majority draw after an epic fight Saturday night in New York City, but a mishap nearly derailed the bout at the end of a round as Jack landed a solid left hook on referee Arthur Mercante Jr.

Mercante shrugged off the punch, got a sip of water from Jack's corner and continued on with the fight.
