I think these three judges gave Yaegashi the rounds he needed for the decision early on, then decided to make the scores look more respectable after the decision was a foregone conclusion. Not saying Yaegashi didn't deserve the decision, but it was a genuinely close fight, which unfortunately was not at all reflected in the official scores.
You are probably not wrong, at least regarding the judges that had it 80-72 and 79-71 as of 2/3 of the way in. Of course the crowd thought it was just lovely when those scores were announced, but they probably got some very dirty looks from the commissioners, timekeeper, foreign press, or anyone else there not specifically rooting for Yaegashi. Of the last four, Sosa really only got the last and yet they must have given him a bunch of shares to avoid the stain of notoriety.

Either way, sounds like one to look for on YT.
