Steve Cunningham in Tears Over Loss: I Was Cheated!

By Luke Furman

Former champion Steve Cunningham was very emotional after losing a controversial split decision to Tomasz Adamek in their IBF heavyweight title eliminator at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, PA. Adamek (48-2) came out on top with scores of 115-112 and 116-112, while Cunningham (25-5) was the winner of the third card with a score of 115-113 for Cunningham (25-5). Two of the judges gave Adamek three of the last four rounds.

The fight was initially announced as a draw, but then a score of 115-115 was changed to a score of 115-112 for Adamek - and then it changed to 115-113, also for Adamek. The change gave Adame the victory, although many saw Cunningham as the winner.

"I really don't know what more I can do. What can I say? What can I do? Real men cry, real men shed tears. You can't knock everyone out. We did our thing in the ring. It saddens me. I can't be getting cheated like this. It's sad, man, it's sad. It's nonsense. What needs to be done in boxing for this not to happen again? This isn't a game. What else do I have to do?," Cunningham said.

[QUOTE=AlbertoDelRio;12847190]Keep ur head up Cunningham, everybody knows you won.[/QUOTE] lol not even. Everybody who watched the fight with a bucket of popcorn [I]thinks[/I] they know who won. The people who closely scored it know something else.

I just watched the replay. Based on the backlash, I was expecting a robbery. I didn't see one. I scored the fight 115-114 to Cunningham. In my opinion, there are 3 levels of decisions. 1. Good/Right Decisions 2. Bad/Wrong Decisions…
