On Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California - Vasyl Lomachenko (2-1, 1KO) captured the vacant WBO featherweight crown with twelve round majority decision over previously undefeated Gary Russell Jr. (24-1, 14KOs).

After the fight was over, the post-fight celebrations by Team Lomachenko were hit with a black cloud when ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. announced that all three judges had rendered a majority decision. When the score of 114-114 was announced first, there was some nervous energy in the ring for Lomachenko and his camp members.

"After the fight of [Ruslan] Provodnikov [against Chris Algieri], I got a little nervous of course when I heard it was even, 114-114," said Lomachenko's manager Egis Klimas. 

But when Lennon announced that the other two judges had it 116-112 for Lomachenko, the correct fighter was awarded the vacant title.

"The fact that it was 114-114 is absolutley absurd and it just shows that yes we got it the way it should have been, but that you know what - it was still f***ed up that it was that score," said Carl Morretti, VP of Boxing Operations for Top Rank, when speaking with BoxingScene.com.

Some of these judges need one of two things: -new glasses -not be paid off anymore And the first one doesn't count.

[QUOTE=Hook-Right]You mean like when 1 judge robbed Floyd against Canelo and scored it a draw? If anyone knows about paying off judges, it is TR and Arum. Dude had his offices raided by the FBI for a reason.[/QUOTE] What does the Canelo/Floyd judge scores have to do with Arum/Top Rank? Bot...

[QUOTE=isidius]Oh really? What about Pac - Bradley 1?[/QUOTE] Arum bribed the judges to generate interest in a rematch. It's obvious, and was noted by boxing media at the time. Arum had very few guys to match Pac with. Remember, the FBI has searched Arum's offices before, and it wasn't because t...
