    Did you not see how nervous Broner was awaiting the judges decision? You could just see him thinking "Gee I hope uncle Al sent out all the envelopes on time"

    I saw the Compubox numbers. Santiago outlanded Broner 207 to 98. The scorecards of 117-110 and 116-111 for Broner are an absolute disgrace and really makes you think these judges are bought off. I had no idea what fight they were watching. When I heard the scores announced I thought Santiago had won.

    I have nothing against Broner, but he didn't throw enough punches. He had a few good rounds, but I can't see how he won more than four or five. Round after round, Santiago landed more punches.

    And I would complain less if the judges gave Broner a narrow win, maybe edged by the point deduction... But when they are scoring it 117-110 and 116-111, that's where the bias starts to become transparent.

    Hary gave the round with the point deduction as a 10-8 to Broner. Santiago was whaling away at Broner in that round with little reply. He landed nearly 4 times as many punches as Broner in that round.

    And said fighter had quit boxing for 5 years shall I add!

    I fell asleep after about eight rounds and have no desire to watch it again

    Broner was never any good

    The writing was on the wall with the Paulie fight, but signs were there even earlier than that ... struggled with PDL, and even the Gavin Rees fight was embarrassing for him

    He has consistently operated at the same level throughout his career yet there's this strange belief amongst fans and non-fans that he's capable of more? This result shouldn't have surprised anybody
    b-b-but he looked great against ATG Demarco, doe!

    So many of Broner's wins are dubious. Its a crime. The judges just are bought and paid for because Broner can self promote.
    Absolutely, a few of his fights could have gone the other way, but I guess he has a name and that helps. The funny thing is, we as fans should be condemning decisions like this, but we only highlight the high profile names like Broner, worse decisions happens in untelevised fights.

    Right after the fight, my dad and I felt that Santiago did enough to get the win but Santiago's style of boxing is ripe to get stolen by the judges.
    95% of the time the "no-name" B-side who hustles, goes to the body and just fights a bit sloppy gets rob against the name fighter who is able to just land the flashier shots here and there and boxes just a bit more cleanly and neat.
    Pretty the issue with boxing, the name fighter just needs to stay on his feet for 12 rounds. I mean Broner landed nothing in the first round and 2 of the judges gave him the round maybe stevie wonder should be a judge.
