    As far as I can tell... no.

    Well, he won a 4 round split decision against 3-2 Mike Sykes in Podunk Kentucky (town was actually called Paducah but close enough)

    But get this, the only reason Sykes had a winning record (barely) was that he had beaten Gibbons 2 years prior...

    The only name that stands out other than a draw with fake fighter Mikey Rourke was that he got KO'd by a washed-up Alex Ramos who is definitely a legit name but was at least 10 years past his prime.

    You haven't watched the olympics? They explained the new system.
    All five judges were humans.

    I've heard this a lot regarding the fight; but I'm not sure I agree. You have one fighter who is coming forward and trying to engage in a generally accepted way of fighting, while the other is literally running away, and yet we put equal onus on the aggressor for not being able to stop the other from running away. I just don't buy that.

    This isnt to write that being a stick and move fighter is wrong; but Rigo wasn't sticking and moving, he was moving and moving, and running away. Its akin to a fighter who turns his back on the opponent and refuses to engage.
    You have one fighter coming forward, not throwing many punches and consistently failing to cut off the ring.... Who is then awarded the win. I don't think Casimero can have any complaints.

    If you're gonna fight with an amateur style, you should be bound by amateur rules.

    I'm tired of these amateurs taking advantage of the pros system and not getting penalized.

    The referees in the amateurs deduct points if you don't throw any punches in a certain amount of time.

    The pro referees should take note of each fighter's amateur background (if theyre extensive) and deduct points if they don't throw punches within a 10-15 second window.

    Also the amateurs have five judges. 4 are human and 1 is a computer.

    The pros should divide the judges according to their preference. 2 judges should be those who like aggressiveness and 2 should be those who like defense. Compubox is the deciding factor if the judges score it a draw.

    For those who think that what Rigo did was ok, wow.

    JMM fought a lot moving back. He never ran. Ali danced beautifully - floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. Stop making excuses for a move that goes against the very nature of boxing which is punching. If you run you cannot punch and your opponent cannot punch you. Same with clinching. Only acceptable when trying to survive after getting hurt. Stop blaming the aggressor for being unsuccessful in chasing the runner. There will not have to be any chasing if there was no running.

    If you have boxed even a little you would know that running is easier than chasing and clinching easier than getting out of one. Those are cheat moves when done even when you are not hurt.

    Ok, thanks.

    That seems an unusually large weight gain for a 118lb though.
