If the best you can do is Dirrell vs Froch then dont bother mentioning it cause that is not even a robbery.
You my dude Big L...but Mathessye lost the early rounds to both those guys they out worked him and were cleaner with the shots...he came on strong but I would not have given him those decisions...

Dirrell got robbed and the fact that UK fans wont admit it is another reason Americans fighter will not be fighting over there.

If the money was right the Americans would travel. Probably. There have been plenty of surprising decisions over-favouring the away fighter in the UK.

If you want a real boxing robbery in Britain, look at the decision Anthony Joshua got on the way to the gold medal in the olympics!

McCloskey over Prescott- it was a close fight, but I thought it was clear that Prescott won by a narrow margin.

It dosent.

Theres a difference between boxing you opponent and running like a girl all night.


Pure boxers are my style. Im not into brawlers. Dirrell ran that night, big difference.

I also thought Prescott beat Mccloskey.

Look at all the stoppages Slappy got there. If that isn't corruption, I don't know what is.

I had Dirrell beating Froch by one point (after the deduction) so to say that its a robbery is complete bullshit. Dirrell laned the cleaner shots and looked the better boxer but fighting on the other guys home and being as negative as he was just asking for them to give the close rounds to Froch. No robbery but I think most people picked Dirrell.

Precott-McClosky was more near a robbery but he boxed poor for the last few rounds and it was closer than some make it out to be now. I don't mind that one being called a robbery though.

Zak Page was robbed when he faced Tom Dallas, beat him fairly comfortably imo.

As was Oberdai Sai who was massively robbed against Jamie Cox. Those two were worse than the the afore mentioned fights.

Good post
Matthysee had Alexander down in round 3 and bashed him all around the ring in round 7 or 8 with literally about 6 punches thrown back so that's two 10-8 rounds. He also had him running like a girl for half of that fight and no way did Alexander win 6 of the other 8 rounds, he won 4 max - really bad decision imo.

The judah fight was a close one, I thought Lucas squeaked it but it was close enough that a Judah win isn't outrageous by any means.

Alexander-Kotelnyk was as bad with Kotelnyk winning about 9 of the rounds on my card cleanly.

Tszyu gettin nut punched into retirement

Benn being allowed to rabbit punch and head butt McClellan until he was sipping through a straw

Froch rabbit punching and body slamming Dirrell than admitting after the fight he had to fight dirty because Dirrell was too slick


Its not so much that you get robbed in Britain its that you are allowed to use whatever tactics necessary to get a victory.

Most robberies occur in America imo but that isn't just hometown, its because its where most of the big fights happen and promoters stick their heads in to look after the cash cows or at the least the judges know its better for everyone if the cash cows win.

Paul McCloskey vs. SEVERAL people.

Ridiculous premature Calzaghe-esque stoppages that coincidentally favor the brit fighter.

The HUGE amount of disgusting and absolutely shameful Olympic robberies that are still fresh in peoples minds.

Dirrell Froch is a recent one too. Dirrell gets penalized for...what? Froch gets warned TWICE about rabbit punching, TWICE about hitting on the break (both of which he did more than twice), yet no penalty. BLATANTLY bought refs. Why would an American travel so far for such shit?

So there's a few, take your pick.

To be fair, Mares sent Agbeko's nuts through his mouth. Tyson bit someones ear of and the fight continued etc that happens everywhere

If you're going to accuse a country of robbing fighters at least come up with some good examples, rather than close fights that could have gone either way.

The worst robbery here in recent times was probably Sai vs Cox - Sai won AT LEAST eight rounds, and benefitted from two point deductions against his opponent.
