Default Scoring in the Olympics needs to change

Love the Olympics and love boxing but I have now seen five absolute robberies
  1. Savon vs Joshua - had this clear for Savon by around 3 points.
  2. Ogogo vs Khytrov - Ogogo was simply beaten up for two minutes of the second and was dominated in the third.
  3. Vijender vs Gausha - please the Indian was comprehensively outboxed for three rounds.
  4. Juratoni vs Atoev - Atoev could barely stand after six minutes , yet wins the last round.
  5. Vikas vs Spence. - See point three.
Not Sure what the answer is but in every other sport in the Olympics even the gymnastics there is a clear definition of success and failure.

I think it shows that being a gold medalist isnt what it used to be.

peace.

Already happening. Elite level amateur boxing reverts to no headgaurd and ten point must system in 2013.

Was the Ogogo fight that bad? I thought it looked pretty nip and tuck to me.

Spence was robbed. He beat the living shit out that indian fella and if u noticed at the end even the REF raised his hand and had a look of disbelief on his face when he realized theyd give it the indian.

"by around 3 points."

Not seen the fight, but that hardly sounds like a robbery to me..

Yes the scoring needs to change, but the sport must NOT become a carbon copy of the pros.

No. No. No. No. NO!

I can't see how changing the scoring system will stop wrong decisions.

The problem is a combination of corruption and incompetence, not the way the fights are scored.
