I agree with that. In the US there's little chance of beating the homeboy on points, but in this case it's not why people say Burns wins it.
If Vazquez dominates Burns he will get his deserved decision in the UK, I'm pretty sure about that. Problem is, he's not likely to dominate so the decision will be close. In that case we get the "could have gone either way" scenario with "either way" meaning always to the homeboy no matter how the fight is scored by most of the fans or the press.
If its a close fight, how can it be called a robbery?
