Read the publications on that fight and how the crowd stood on their feet and booed the decs and cheered Gaspar back to the dressing room. Griffth and Ortega were Garden and NYC favorites but as I said when your an independent you need patiences!
Do you actually know how boxing worked back then? Ray.
You're talking nonsense.
It was a split decision and a relatively close fight to a degree but the majority of people had Griffith winning the fight.
Absolutely no way, no how do "Most people consider it a robbery".
Show me these publications claiming it was a robbery, please.
Like I said, the newspaper's covering the fight had Griffith winning and the vast majority of ringside scorer's had Griffith winning. These are facts. What you are saying is nothing but nonsense.
