I just (re)watched the fight with no audio on and I believe it's one of the worst robberies of the sport

how could 6 rounds be scored for JC is beyond me

Chavez is one of my all time favorites.....& I think he won 3 rounds, at best, against Whitaker.

A truly awful decision. One that made me emabarrassed to be both a Chavez & boxing fan.

Agreed. I don't think there will be any arguements against that.

I need to stop smoking crack. I just wrote a freaking book on Chavez and Taylor before realizing the thread was about Sweet Pea. Thank god I didn't post it :D

No way in hell Chavez was close in that fight. Horrible decision. One of the worst I have ever seen.

The problem that I saw was that in the 6th round, one of the judges used a warning Whitaker got for low blows as an excuse to give the round to Chavez shows that it was a job. That Chavez didn't seek a rematch says it all.

Can you blame him? Who wants to get pittypat for 12 rounds?

It was a draw it you stop scoring after 4 rounds.

Whitaker 117-111.
