Tavoris Cloud Decisions Campillo in a Harsh Robbery

American Bank Center, Corpus Christi, Texas - Gabriel Campillo (21-4-1, 8KOs) survived two bad knockdowns in the first round and appeared to dominate the majority of the next eleven, but the two of the three official judges gave the decision to IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (24-0, 19KOs). The scores were 115-111 for Campillo, 114-112 and 116-110 for Cloud. The crowd and Showtime's ringside announcers was livid with the scores.

Campillo was dropped down hard with a big straight right hand in the second minute of the round. After Campillo beat the count, Cloud put together another series of punches to send him down for a second knockdown. Campillo survived until the bell. 

But, Campillo pulled himself together and started outboxing Cloud in the second round. In the next couple of rounds, Campillo started working Cloud over and opened up a bad cut above the champion's left eye.

In the eight, Cloud was in a lot of trouble with Campillo punishing him against the ropes. Cloud punched his way out of trouble, but Campillo continued to punish him.

Cloud was having a lot of trouble with Campillo's southpaw style in the entire fight. In the eleventh round, Campillo was toying with Cloud and boxing his ears off. Campillo seemed to have the edge in the twelfth and Cloud looked like a beaten fighter.

Unbelievable. I had it 116-110 in favor of Campillo. That is with Cloud's 10-7 round and a 10-9 in the 6th. Campillo took the rest IME. This needs to stop.

[QUOTE=TaurusJ27;11801832]Here comes some more judges facing suspension and rightly deserved.[/QUOTE] Suspending judges is a patsy move, throwing patsies under the bus is a move for "show" but does nothing to attack the actual problem.

Not suprised in the slightest, boxing officials in the states are biased, corrupt and downright incompetant at times, just another poor decision in a long line of poor decisions
