Judge CJ Ross: I Stand By Mayweather-Canelo Score!
The boxing judge being ripped apart for scoring the Mayweather/Canelo fight as a draw tells TMZ she doesn't care what the critics say ... insisting she called the fight correctly.
Judge C.J. Ross tells us "I stand behind my decision" and isn't fazed by all the ferocious criticism she's received from both experts and amateurs.
In case you missed it -- Floyd Mayweather scored a convincing victory over Saul "Canelo" Alvarez last night ... but C.J. was the only judge to score them evenly.
After the fight, boxing expert Teddy Atlas went on ESPN and said Ross' score was a travesty and suggested she was paid off by gamblers.
Everyone in the arena was shocked by C.J.'s call ... including Floyd Mayweather who mouthed the words, "What the f***" when the announcer revealed he won on a majority decision and not unanimous.
But it's clear the judge doesn't care ... in her mind it was a draw.
I like what Canelo did in the midway in the 12th round. With Floyd content to just dance around the ring, Canelo stopped following him. I think that whoever fights him next should do the same thing. If you're coming…Comment by keepemup on 09-18-2013

Years ago (someone here could give more precision) some people said a key criterion for judging was that, all other things being equal, the fighter that goes forward wins the round. This criterion seems to have disappeared at some point…Comment by Rome-By-Ko on 09-17-2013
