Also which Calzaghe fights we talking about, the worst one was Manfredo but he was getting stopped anyway, the levels between them were ridiculous. He ruined Lacy (who admittedly was massively overrated anyway) but they let him see that fight out to the end without need for stoppage.

I suppose McIntyre, Pudwill and Veit were all going to do Joe if the ref hadn't stepped in?

American Robbery's off my head:

Bradley-Pacquaio

Alexander-Kotelnyk
Alexander-Matthysee
Chavez-Whitaker
Holyfield-lewis
Lara-Williams
Cintron-Martinez
Ali-Norton 3
DLH-Sturm
DLH-Trinidad
Hagler-Antofermo

If by "fight like a girl", you mean land more punches while having very punches landed on him, then yes,he fought like a girl.

There were times in the later rounds where Dirrell was literally teeing off on Froch!

In which case, Froch accrued more points, Froch won the fight, Froch SD12 Dirrell

If that were the case, fine. Reasonable minds can disagree. None of this "you gotta take it to the champ" ****ing bullshit. Scoring a fight with a built-in cushion for the guy with the strap is a recipe for a robbery, which is what a lot of people think happened.

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!
That was not a robbery though, it was a stupid scoring system which massively favours the home fighters as it is even easier to be swayed by cheers for single shots. Also it was done on median average which is ridiculous and makes no sense whatsoever.

Pure boxers are my style. Im not into brawlers. Dirrell ran that night, big difference.
It wasn't the running that was an issue for me, it was the fact that he threw himself to the floor every time there was a chance of an exchange.


I scored the fight to dirrell (pretty impossible not to) but at the same time I thought dirrell should have been warned more and deducted points and if he still continued to do it, disqualified. The ref did a really bad job that favoured dirrell so maybe the judges took it in to their own hands.

Broner should take the fight. Burns wouldn't see the 6th round.
