All three of those fights were debatable, Im not even giving my opinion. the least debatable fight was the Calzighe fight but the only meaningful thing done in that fight was the knockdown and Calzighe was rewarded, to many, for essentially slapping away with little effect.

joe might have been slapping, but all hopkins did the majority of the fight, was complain to the ref and try and act his away into point deductions

He also knocked Joe down... From Sonny's favorite rag: here are the scores which indicate that One judge was off his rocker the other two scores were close with one going for Hopkins the other for slapperinski.

115-112 and 116-111, with the
third going for Hopkins 114-113.

Toney is not overrated. He was a warrior! Why pick on Toney? He dug deep so many times, win or lose, he deserves respect. Why do people nitpick and get all anal about **** these days? He was a great fighter, period.

Precisely.

Does it matter he won?

It was rightfully changed too no contest. That's not a W.

This was a very good thread and should be what this forum is about.
I don't agree with the thread starter but he makes a good argument and makes me think about my position.
If we don't want to hear other people's opinions there isn't much point to this site

Exactly!!

That's fair enough you don't agree, I expect many to not agree.

It's merely a discussion. This is a discussion forum after all.

Thanks for the comment I appreciate it. I feel there's good points posted by myself, and also from others. There's points either side.
