Default What Are The 3 Worst Decisions You Have Ever Seen?

Please share your list, here's mine -

1. Pernell Whitaker vs Jose Luis Ramirez 1 - I just watched this and scored it 120-108, that's right, 12 rounds to nothing, for Sweet Pea. I had him winning every single round and I only thought there was 1 were Ramirez was competitive (The 8th), but I still thought he lost it. Usually when I watch a robbery or just a bad decision in general, it makes me upset and angry, but towards the end of this I actually started laughing to myself because Ramirez was just getting owned that badly. I still can't believe that they gave it to him. He got completely and utterly schooled.

2. Richard Abril vs Brandon Rios - I had Abril winning 119-109 and I thought the round that I gave to Rios was close enough to have gone the other way. The rounds here were more competitive than in Whitaker-Ramirez but Abril still won at least 10 of them in my eyes. Brandon "Bob Arum's next cash cow" Rios got the decision, even though he didn't land any meaningful punches and Abril hit him completely at will.

3. Lennox Lewis vs Evander Holyfield 1 - I had Lewis winning 119-110 and it was ruled a draw. I could see maybe 3 rounds for Holyfield but that would be being very generous. Evander appeared to get hit with 3 or 4 punches for every one he landed. I have seen far more competitive fights than this that the judges scored 120-108 or 119-109 across the board (Toshiaki Nishioka vs Rendall Munroe and Nonito Donaire vs Omar Narvaez are two examples where the loser was far more effective than Holyfield)

Please give me your thoughts. I know that there will be other opinions/choices and I am interested in learning about them.

The worst decision are in the fights that people don't really care about. Those you mentioned are NOTHING in comparision to those:
1. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - Carlos Molina I
2. DeMarcus Corley - Fariz Kazimov
3. Krzysztof Cieslak - Dariusz Snarski I
Alle just unthinkable...
"Honorable" mention :
Johnny Armour - Francis Ampofo I (TV commentators thought it was all right... huh?)
Ray Mercer - Marion Wilson
Sinan Samil Sam - Paolo Vidoz

A 12 round shutout is far worse than a 6 round shutout. Did you really think Whitaker-Ramirez 1 was competitive? I watched the fight about an hour ago and I can't even remember if Ramirez landed a serious/clean punch or not. He missed so much that it was actually funny to watch. It seemed like he missed 90% of his punches while Whitaker landed about 80% of his. I appreciate the feedback and will try to catch some of those.

It's hard to sort through them. At the moment I'll go with these:

1. Christy Martin against Belinda Lauraquente (sp?)
2. Glen Johnson-Daniel Judah
3. Casamayor's gift versus that one guy

Ramirez-Whitaker I and Casamayor-Santa Cruz are the first two I can think of. Just despicable. I'd choose Lewis-Holy I, except that it was a draw and at least Lennox went home with his title. So my third choice will be Ellis-Patterson. It wasn't the very worst decision, but it bothered me plenty. Bradley-Pacquiao was the most recent "worst decision ever", but its been mostly forgotten already.

I can't even go back and watch Whitaker vs. Ramirez 1. That's how bad that decision was.

How about Whitaker-Chavez or Paul Williams-Erislandy Lara? I guess I'd throw in Holmes-Spinks. I thought Holmes even edged out Spinks in the first fight, plus I've heard in a close fight judges usually give it to the champion, but I guess they didn't because Holmes was too outspoken at the time? Either way, he definitely should've got the decision in the second fight, so I'll say Holmes-Spinks 2 for my third pick.

I'd also throw in Foreman-Briggs. No way Briggs should've won that. The even worse part was that made Briggs the lineal heavyweight champion.

I gave Ramirez 3 rounds, he dominated, but he was nowhere near as dominant as Carlos Molina against Jr.. Molina just beat the living **** out of this dude. Not comparable man .

I can understand scoring it for Foreman, but there have been much worse decisions than that.
