Yeah, I thought it was way too close a call for robbery talk, myself.

Navarro/Kawashima

Navarro wins 120/109 on one card, but the other two judges give it to the local favourite 115/114 and 115/113...

I didn't care for Darry Matthews (WIDE!) UD12 John Simpson. Matthews was down in the 1st and had two points docked in later rounds for fouls (should have been more) but still somehow got 6,7 and 2 point margins on the cards. I had him winning more rounds.

I wouldn't call a fight a robbery unless I've clearly scored it for the other guy.

I wouldn't call a fight a robbery unless i'd scored it wide for the losing fighter AND a bunch of guys ringside thought it was the wrong decision.

Anyone remember Danny Williams Vs John McDermott? Williams deducted 3 points collectively from the 11th and 12th and a sure 10-8 round in the 5th I still can't work out how one judge scored it 114-111. Absolutely digrsceful decision.

There's some stinkers on this list, but the best ones are when even the commentators get all worked up about the call.

Augustus vs Hooper was a terrible decision and rightfully lampooned by everyone, but the best robbery I've ever seen was an old time ESPN fight in the pre-Al Bernstein days. House fighter from Rhode Island named Rafael Lopez got his clock cleaned by an unknown journeyman named Veloz. The ref actually waved off three legit knockdowns and HELPED Lopez to his feet each time while Sal Marchiano (Bernstein's predecessor) went ballistic from ringside. They scored it something like 97-92 and Lopez maybe won one round. Home crowd booed Lopez out of the ring and then Marchiano went into the ring and confronted the ref as angrily as possibly could and they had an on-air confrontation with screaming and accusations flying. It was such good theater that it got reported (with photo of them arguing) in World Boxing and K.O magazine in their next issues. Hard to forget that one if you were lucky enough to see it.

Everybody that watched the Toney/Tiberi fight on tv thought Tiberi won. Many ringsiders were suprised that he survived. When offered a rematch within 60 days, Tiberi claimed to not be "medically able" to fight that soon.

Willie Jorrin Vs Michael Brodie for vacant WBC super bantam title. Jorrin had a terrible work rate and spent the whole time running and pot shotting with little success. Brodie out worked him and dominated, the only success Jorrin got was a knock down in the 10th. Brodie was the clear winner.

Jorrin would go on to defend his title twice, once against Oscar Larios and some japanese fighter, both decisions were also controversial. Was very happy when Larios KO'ed him in the rematch.

Yeah, I thought it was way too close a call for robbery talk, myself.

Boxed, every now and then, I fall into the temptation, and give in!
