ermm Barker got bashed up pretty good by Belgecham. Somehow got the decision which was one of the worst robberies you will ever see in the ring.

Im pretty sure a young, motivated vera would of put the frighteners on Barker too.

Barker vs Lee

The fight to find out who is the stiffest middleweight in the world.

They could call the event 'Rigid'

One of the worst robberies you will ever see in the ring?

I'd be interested to see your scorecard for that fight.

Worst Robberies WTF?. The guy came back well but some people go on like Barker was battered and left ring on a stretcher. For the first half of fight Darren peppered him then run out of gas and the fella had some success and Barker just about got over the line.

Worst robberies is a ridiculous overstatement.

It was diabolical.

He lost by 2 rounds on my card.

I thought that they were gonna give the draw and felt that was gonna be a robbery. When I saw Barker had won I was gobsmacked.

People love to cry robbery when the clear favourite has a tougher time than expected. Another example was the Macklin v Varon fight.

I don't agree Leo, I think Elvis is right when someone struggles people end up scoring things for the underdog. Your opinion of course and i won't argue your card as it was a close fight but don't think it was a robbery.

For me Burgos was robbed the other night etc.

I will re-watch that fight if it's online but I seem to remember EVERYONE including the commentary team thinking that Macklin was very fortunate to get that decision. He was hanging on at the end and the punch stats would have certainly made a case for him having the lesser of most of the exchanges.
Perhaps not a robbery but he was certainly given the benefit of the doubt by the judges in the close rounds and looked a very worried man after the final bell before the scores were read out.

I just rewatched there.

Maybe one of the worst robberies ever is a stretch, but it was clear win for Belgecham for me.

116-115

Barker won most of the first 6, although I had them sharing one. So was 59-56 at half way for me.

Of the remaining 6 rounds I had belgecham winning 5 and sharing 1.
To make it 56-60 for the second half of the fight.

Total score 115-116 for Belgecham.

Also, the ref didnt once caution Barker for constantly ducking his head below waist level in the last 6 rounds. Didnt even speak to him.

great fight if it happens, Barker would be favorite in my eyes but it will be interesting to see what changes Lee's made with Booth.

so it wasnt a robbery and could of went either way then

116-115 isn't a clear win 8-4's a clear win
