Because referee Mayne ruled on the foul during the course of the test by issuing a yellow card, the United States wasn't required to take action. However, according to Clark, "The match was a hard but generally clean contest. I found the incident Jay was involved in to be unacceptable. Mr. Wilkerson has been appraised that a four-week suspension will immediately take effect.
Continuing, Clark said, "On behalf of our union, I apologize. I'm thankful that Mr. Jenkins wasnıt injured."
Jay Wilkerson felt compelled to issue a written apology, which follows: "I've never been involved in anything like this before, and I wholeheartedly regret the incident. I've spoken to Garin and I sincerely apologize to him. I accept my union's suspension."
