Lol, weve got this going in 3 threads now. I had simpson winning aswell. 1 of the judges had 118-112, which is impossible after a KD and 2 point deductions

That result was a joke, the judge who gave it 118-112 should be sacked. I was actually rooting for Matthews but by the end of the fight i was praying for a simpson win. Matthews dhould have been DQ about 3 times overall. But after all that how can the judges give him the fight when he landed about 3 punches each round max, complete and utter joke!

Yes, that was one of the worst contests I've ever seen. Funny how they built Derry Matthews up as if he was great and then he put in a performance like that. What had me in stitches was the fact he butted his opponent to cause the cut, then they were making out like John Simpson would lose by TKO if the fight was stopped on the cut.

Its impossible for it to have been 118-112. Simpson was well and truly robbed

Yeah what was that all about, john and Duke need to check the rules. ITV were all over Matthews all night, feel gutted for Simpson.

Yeah, im not the best at maths but even i can see if you get knocked down and 2 points deducted 117 is the highest score you can get, what a disgrace.

But with Simpson clearly winning the first round, a knock down, and Matthews having 2 points taken off him,theres no way matthews could get 118, And the cut was from Matthews butting him. Its not as if he opened it up with a punch.

some judges need ****ing shooting

116 even? max = 120 - 2 points deducted, - 2 points for the kd.

to be honest, the whole itv boxing show pissed me off last night.

ok the mbaye fight was alright but i thought his opponent was unlucky.

the mitchell fight was pointless...it was just a training exercise for mitchell on hitting moving targets with "the master" barely throwing anything back.

paul smith was involved in a pointless fight in three weeks before he should be appearing in the contender fights in Newcastle.

but the matthews simpson fight just took the piss completely. i don't remember him being so dirty when he won the title and i think the only reason he didn't get DQ'd was the ref wanted to leave liverpool with all limbs attached. the way he was putting simpson in a headlock and punching at the cut, and the time he scraped his elbow across the cut as they were coming out of the clinch was just sickening.

i scored it 114-113 to simpson. ****in disgraceful hometown decision.

derry will be nothing more than a wbu champ which is worth less than the british championship anyway.

Absolutely disgusting decision! I am totally gobsmacked, i had it Simpson win by 2 points. Puts me off watching ITV's coverage.

I had Matthews winning, but 117 was the highest score he could achieve so that judge needs disciplining for an atrocious score.

The cut was a big factor though and I don't think I had Simpson winning many rounds once it started affecting him. Matthews is sh*t though and could easily have been DQ'd. He's going nowhere.

The standard of commentary was woeful as well. All in all it was an extremely disappointing card.

What rounds did you guys give to Simpson then? I saw him being outlanded from the cut onwards.

EDIT: I think I had 115-112 Matthews or 114-113, but I didn't think it was that difficult to score. To be honest though, I haven't really got a scooby doo compared to some of you guys!

I agree with most of this i had Matthews winning by 1 point,due to his dirty tactics he should have been dq'd but after the cut started he won virtually every round.In all, it was a bad fight and Simpson was unlucky.Im sure he would have won by stoppage had it not been for the cut.Neither fighter looks like they could go beyond British domestic level to be honest.

No way was it a UD for Mathews. Matthews should have beed DQ, he got simpson in the headlock twice ruffing the cut up. Was a fixed to be UD.

Was stevie gerrard paid to watch the fight last nite or what? He looked like he didnt want to be there lol.

Yeah that made me laugh my arse off. I bet he didnt realise that it would go on for so long. It was a bit bizarre him and Carragher being there, and when they interviewed Gerrard about Matthews he clearly didnt really know.

And this was yet another case of a Frank Warren fighter getting a gift decision, along with Mbaye. Did you see Vann's face when the first score was read out? It was a picture. And ITV didnt pick up on the fact that it's impossible to score 118 with a knockdown and a 2 point deduction. They truly are useless cunts. I wouldnt be surprised if ITV dropped their boxing coverage though to be honest, they get too many fights like last night.

i wanted derry to win at the start but after all that **** he should have been DQ, bad performance and i cant see him doing anything past British or wbu title. i am not a fan of Mickey van and i donít think he should be able to judge after that performance. I donít think ITV will drop boxing though as some of there bigger fighters have been getting good viewing figures.

Mickey Vann is one of the reasons that a lot of international boxing fans consider the UK a bad place to fight. He is Warren's go to man, judging or reffing. I mean how he didn't deduct a point from Hatton against Tszyu is beyond me. You could tell he thought Matthews should have been DQ's but he didn't have the cahunas to do it to a Warren "prospect".

The more I think about it, some of the stuff Matthews was doing was so dirty that he deserves to lose all his support. Deliberately aggravating a cut whilst in a clinch shows a complete lack of respect and sportsmanship.

Frank Warren's demeanor irritates me.....the way he always looks like he's sweating, and keeps brushing that quiff back which is gradually moving to the back of his head.....i`m sure he's bribed his fair share of refs and judges, or at least lent on them....he's bad for boxing , plus he looks like a fish.

He is repugnant, kind of like a cross between a natterjack toad and one of those flat headed bootom feeder fish.

He's done well for himself, but the way Calzaghe's career has meandered really annoys me, and I'm not a fan of the WBU route. Should be British---Commonwealth---- European---- title shot.

I definatly think there was somthing dodgy going on saturday, the way the judges came up with stupid, and in one case impossible, scores. I got the feeling they wernt even scoring the fight! just at the end knew they had to give it to Matthews so just came up with any old score.

I said to my missus at the first bell " it would be so funny if the mickey mouser got put on his arse " took me 10 mins to stop laughing.
I had mattews by a round in the end, but there would be no argument had the sweaty got the decision.

I had 114-112 for Simpson. Simpson was winning a lot of the early to middle rounds and obviously had three 10-8 rounds. Derry won most of the championship rounds, with the exception of the 12th so a draw could have been a fair result. Poor result and a piss poor show in the end.
