Freddie Roach Angry at Chisora's Loss: It's Just Terrible!

By Pawel Pronishev

Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, Finland - Trainer Freddie Roach, who watched the heavyweight battle between Robert Helenius (17-0, 11KOs) and Dereck Chisora (16-2, 9KOs) was very upset with the outcome. Chisora appeared to many as the clear winner, including Roach, but the official judges gave Helenius a close split decision victory and the vacant EBU heavyweight title. The scores were 115-113 for Helenius, 115-113 for Chisora and 115-113 for Helenius.

"It's amazing that [Helenius] can say that he won that fight, in my opinion. He said he won the fight, but now he's making excuses that he hurt his right hand in the first round. Maybe he just had an off-night, but the decision was just terrible. That really hurts our sport. It shouldn't happen, but that's life. Maybe he hurt his right hand. Maybe he had an off-night. Maybe they can do a rematch in England and we'll have a different result," Roach said.

Get real you guys who are trying to color history. The third fight was not closer than the second one. Most thought that Marquez won the second fight, but EVERYONE knows who won the third, including Pacquiao and his camp.…

Anyone who expects Roach to come out and say his fighter lost is an idiot. Chisora was robbed. Who gives a sh*t about the Pacquiao fight?

the manny marquez III fight was a close one. even roger mayweather himself agreed. chisora's was a clearly a one-sided fight and roach isn't even his trainer. some folks here are just so hateful, they get downright illogical.
