Probably statue being erected as we speak.
I disagree. If a fight is really close, I mean so close that without scoring the rounds it feels almost like a draw, and then one guy gets a clear decision, you can say it wasnt a robbery really. But if you watch a fight and without scoring it you know who won, it is definitely a robbery if the other guy gets the decision.
And with all respect to other posters here, but there is just no way Hernandez won this fight. Troy Ross was beating him up and Hernandez couldnt adjust AT ALL and got hurt over and over again. Yes, there are maybe 3 or 4 rounds you can give Hernandez, but not more. So Troy Ross won around 8 rounds plus the knockdown. That makes this a clear robbery for me.
Some guys have to stop saying "dont always throw out the word robbery". But when do you want us to use the word robbery? When a guy clearly wins all 12 rounds and knocks his opponent down 10 times? On the highest level you wont see something like that in Boxing. So you have to just score the rounds and when one guy is ahead on your scorecard by 4 or 5 points, then it can be called a robbery.
That being said: The referee saved Hernandez on numerous occasions when he was hurt and turning his back on Ross. Ref gave him time to recover over and over again. This fight has written robbery all over it
