NBA Legend Payton To Cunningham: You Were Robbed!

By Tim Kudgis

Last night on ATG Radio, former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham stopped by fresh off his controversial loss to Tomasz Adamek this past Saturday on NBC. During the interview NBA Legend & avid boxing fan Gary Payton stopped by to discuss boxing and had some kind words for "USS" Cunningham.

"He got robbed man! That's all there is too it. You shouldn't even feel bad. Tell him to fight you again and you will beat him down this time. Don't even give him the opportunity to rob you again. Don't hold your head down you won that fight!"

After Steve thanked him for his support, Gary Payton had this this say:

"You don't have to thank me. You did what you were supposed to. You are good at what you do and I like it! I am a big avid boxing fan and you went out there and did what you had to do! He had all of the fans on his side and that is why I say boxing is a little bit on the downside right now because the judges sway to the way of the crowd and stuff. It's really crazy to me because I go to a lot of fights and see that especially seeing you fight and seeing that."

"It just makes it even worse when you see a lot of fights and a lot of you guys get robbed. You all work hard at what you do then all of a sudden you get it taken away from you. I know you don't have your head down. You are the type of guy that know you are going to come back and get down on him again so don't worry about it. Just next time make sure to let them know you are going to knock this cat out so you won't have to take anything from me. That's all you will have to worry about!"

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]If it was close how convincingly could it possibly have been? It is like all those screaming how big of a robbery it was and then stating that they scored the fight 7-5 in rounds to Steve.[/QUOTE] So a close fight cant be a robbery?? .. It was a good close scrap but I though...

[QUOTE=aces725]It was close but I thought it was clear ..Cunningham won convincingly , anybody unbiased would clearly see him winning too .. Adamek couldn't land anything significant .. I find it hilarious that people say Steve ran , was he supposed to fight toe to toe with someone 20 pounds heav...

What does Gary Payton know about boxing,or about being robbed for that matter.?

I watched the fight. I thought it was close. Cunningham did well with his jab occasionally landing a nice combination, but Adamek landed the harder shots and pressed the action all fight long.
