It's not a big secret that Don King and Jose Sulliman have had let's say some questionable ethics violations when it comes to how the WBC have rated some of King's fighters and stripping of titles etc. The fight between Chavez and Whitaker had two 115-115 scores which made it a draw.

The more likely scenario in a draw is simply 114-114 which is 6 rounds each. 115-115 is usually 5 rounds each and than two even 10-10 rounds. To have one judge score 10-10 twice is unlikely, to have two judges score two 10-10 rounds makes it suspicious. Also the fact that they took so long to announce the score gives a fishy impression.

Also if you notice Jose Sulliman came to Don King after the fight to speak to him with a dissapointed look.

How often have you seen two 115-115 scorecards?

I never have and it's no secret that corruption dictated those scores.

After 11 rounds, the scores were 106-105 and 105-104 for Whitaker, and the third card was tied at 105-105, the judges can't come up with a winner and were split in the 12th and final round, Chavez and Whitaker each had 10-9 scores and a 10-10 even round.

Surprisingly, the one who gave Whitaker a 115-113 edge had Chavez ahead, 86-85 after nine rounds!
