To be honest mate, both fights were more than fairly scored.
Germany no doubt has a bad rep, but so does a lot of other places.

Quite a few knowledgeable posters scored the fight to sturm actually and it's reasonable to suggest that geale actually lost. It wasn't one of those SD
decisions that was really a 118-110, etc. It was a genuinely close fight.

Germany has it's demons, but not on this occasion.
