  • Comments Thread For: Makabu Beats Russia's Papin On Points On Kovalev-Yarde Card

    Ilunga Makabu beat a hard-hitting Russian in Russia for the second time in barely two months, this time by decision. The South Africa-based cruiserweight contender knocked down Aleksei Papin late in the 12th round and won a majority decision in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Two of the three judges scored their 12-rounder for Makabu on the Sergey Kovalev-Anthony Yarde undercard at Traktor Sports Palace.

          Respect to the judges for not concocting a "win" for the home fighter.

          I wonder what would have been the case if the fight had taken place in the US or Britain with Papin as the home fighter in each case.

              Helluva fight. Very entertaining. I didn't score it but felt Makabu deserved it and won it with the KD. Papin gave a very good account of himself. Probably the most entertaining fight of the evening for me.

                I have to be honest, I thought the same exact thing after they rightfully gave it to the foreign fighter. My guess is that Papin would have won if the fight was in the US or UK and that was his native country. Good job on the refs.

                  Boxing is just corrupt like that which is sad.
