    This happens time and time again in boxing and it needs to stop. Questions need to be asked, if you say too much then you get criticise but that scorecard was disgusting.

    To be honest, I think any decent world level fighter with decent enough workrate and durable enough to get caught with the odd counter will beat Broner at this point.
    Beating Broner has never been the problem. It is beating the corrupt judges that raise his hand no matter how badly he is beaten.

    So many of Broner's wins are dubious. Its a crime. The judges just are bought and paid for because Broner can self promote.

    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.

    Did Santiago actually win? Or is it people scoring it for him because they donít like Broner?

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

    Disagree

    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

    He bragged that he no longer has $13 in his account.....and is ready to party. That bum better hold onto that money, instead of tricking it away. The next time he steps in the ring with a legitimate opponent with power, not that handpicked journeyman Santiago, Boneheads' career is over. I honestly can't wait ��
