But with that said, bad judging is unacceptable, and usually the guy who didnt win the fight gets the nod. I can see disagreeing with them on a point or two, but with some of these scores one has to wonder if they even have eyeballs.
Don't you think the guy who judged horribly should be disciplined somehow regardless of the decision? Why should we wait until two of them judge on the same card and then the somebody gets a loss that'll stick on their record?
IMO, I have no problem with a judge being a round or maybe 2 off if it's a close fight.... but something is seriously wrong if a judge scores it wide compared to the others.
