Whitaker against Ramirez and Chavez no doubt. Also Marquez and Hagler were outright robbed by the judges. Their fights should have been at least a draw or a win in their favor. Hearns was also jobbed as well.

Walcott probably deserved the decision over Louis first time round.

Spinks probably shaded Holmes first time round, but Holmes arguably should have been awarded the rematch.

I did shade the second Ali Norton match to Ali by virtue of the last round. Their third fight was more contentious.

Whitaker should have got the nod over Chavez.

A draw was fair in the Leonard vs Hearns rematch. Though I personally scored it by a round to Hearns.

Lewis was blatantly robbed in the first match with Holyfield.

Oscar should have got the decision in the rematch with Mosley.

Sturm should have been awarded the decision against Oscar.

Watching live I felt that Hopkins deserved the verdict against Calzaghe. But on rewatching I scored it for Joe.

Similar with Marquez. Watching live I felt that he clearly outpointed Pac. But on rewatching and scoring, he probably only shaded it by a round or two.

The other fights aren't fresh enough in memory.

As for the Chavez vs Taylor stoppage..................err tough call. No one really deserved to lose that fight, it was a classic.

I bolded the fights which I consider robberies. The rest of them, I either felt were close enough to defer to the judges, or I actually agreed with the decision.

Chavez/Taylor was a completely appropriate stoppage.

I notice a lot of people using the expression "close fight"

It doesn't matter how close a fight was if the outcome was predetermined.
That's what a robbery is........


For example manny/marquez 3 was NEVER going to be given to marquez unless he kod him. They only called it a MD to make things look less bias.......

I forgot to comment on Leonard vs Hagler in my earlier post.

I've always scored that one to Leonard, I've never seen the controversy at all. Not a hope that Hagler won 6 of the rounds in that fight to my eyes.
