I totally agree with your p4p rankings, Pac is definitely above Floyd. - Neutral

If there was some crime, it was in the mis-handling of the fifth. Picking the count up at two was charitable. So were some of the breaks. On scoring? Eh, I had it 6-6 with Ross winning, but it was a close fight. Not a robbery (though one of the cards was epically bad).

Probably statue being erected as we speak.
I disagree. If a fight is really close, I mean so close that without scoring the rounds it feels almost like a draw, and then one guy gets a clear decision, you can say it wasnt a robbery really. But if you watch a fight and without scoring it you know who won, it is definitely a robbery if the other guy gets the decision.
And with all respect to other posters here, but there is just no way Hernandez won this fight. Troy Ross was beating him up and Hernandez couldnt adjust AT ALL and got hurt over and over again. Yes, there are maybe 3 or 4 rounds you can give Hernandez, but not more. So Troy Ross won around 8 rounds plus the knockdown. That makes this a clear robbery for me.
Some guys have to stop saying "dont always throw out the word robbery". But when do you want us to use the word robbery? When a guy clearly wins all 12 rounds and knocks his opponent down 10 times? On the highest level you wont see something like that in Boxing. So you have to just score the rounds and when one guy is ahead on your scorecard by 4 or 5 points, then it can be called a robbery.
That being said: The referee saved Hernandez on numerous occasions when he was hurt and turning his back on Ross. Ref gave him time to recover over and over again. This fight has written robbery all over it

Yeah the 5th was an absolute joke.

Proof of the old adage you have to nail them to the canvas to get a draw in Germany.

Hernandez at that point thought he was a caterpillar in its chrysalis waiting for the day it could feel a warm summer breeze on its face as a butterfly. (I'll stop now)

But over the course of the rest of the fight I didn't score it but there were long stretches were Ross couldn't get into punching range.

There was no robbery......

Cloud made the most important point. Ross rarely let his hands go. Outside of the 5th and a few spurts in other rounds after, all he did was follow Hernandez around while eating jabs and straights. By no means did Hernandez look good at all, but he had more moments and had better ring generalship throughout the fight. Some of you are conveniently overlooking that fact he hurt Ross late in the fight on a couple of occasions. It was a close fight, no robbery at all. Ross gassed, that's why he wouldn't let his hands go. You don't win for staring at your opponent in the ring.
