Sup Josey my man.
I've seen most of Ottke's big fights, and can honestly say that out of all the supposed robberies he got away with, The Reid fight is the only one that I didnt score Ottke's way.
I remember the Dane's were harping on about how Mads Larsen got robbed, but I watched that fight, and like most of Ottke's fights, scored it narrowly to Ottke.
A very underestimated fighter, who probably should have got a L on his record which would have made him more respected.
