    i love how hearn thinks he will get praised for calling out his own corrupt judges

    and lets not pretend like this is one bad apple, practically every single judge/reff that matchroom uses is on the take. the corruption is so obvious and downright disgracefull. its every single show, every single matchroom card, corruption and robberies, BS stoppages are involved, same goes for Fish eyes too to a lesser extent.

    At the very least, I would hope that it would result in ways to ensure that the judges don't have communication devices on them while the event is going on. (I realize they'll just move onto other smaller tech)

    Can't do anything about the briefcases full of cash that are handed off beforehand, but at least make it more difficult for the corruption to occur midfight when fighter A is ruining the plans.

    BTW there has got to be a way to come up with a double blind approach where promoters, managers do not know whothe judges are; and 1 judge do not know who the other 2 are.

    Spot on, this is just one of his many disgraceful scorecards.

    The only saving grace was that his opponent knew he was being robbed if he won. At least when Ohara Davis robbed Vazquez, he had the decency to admit he lost and even raised Vazquez’s hand at the end. Ritsons corner were either in or it or are clueless. Reminds me of Joe Gallagher in Smith v Ryder

    Daryll Williams hasn’t fought since he was disgracefully robbed for the British title. Terry OConnor was the ref that night and told Parker he’d won before He’d even seen the scorecards

    Another one of those, we're going to investigate ourself situations. They'll put on a show, but they are the British Boxing Board, after all, looking out for British interests. It's not about some Mexican getting robbed, it's about how bad they look and scrubbing a tarnished image. Whyte is a saint according to them.

    He was only reading text messages from Eddie advising him on how to score each round.

    Sadly true

    The sad thing is that people are outraged on fight night and by next week everyone has forgotten and the fighter who gets the bad gift decision moves on to better things and thatís the end of it.

    thatís why nothing will ever change and why they can keep robbing fighters who serve no real purpose to them in future.

    Now the likes of Eddie Hearn are coming out and saying it was a bad decision etc etc but thatís just a front to avoid criticism, but in the back of his mind he knows it doesnít really matter and his fighter Ritson will make him some more money down the line. Thatís all that really matters.
