Default How does a foreign fighter win on points in Britain????

I thought Oakland was a tough place to get a decision.

Even Germany is getting better.

UK is now just a place where top fighters will not come to fight.

Just too many times do good foreign fighters get robbed.

Its a real shame.

Kell in 8.

Its everywhere but its been awful in the UK lately. Whatever about 115-113 to Rose, that would have been somewhat understandable, but 117-111? I had it 115-113 Maciel. Most people in the rbr had a similar score but how is it that the two most outrageous scorecards always seem to be from the judges (the only ones who matter?)

I dont think its just Britain where a close fight results in a home win.

The problem is where theres a clear winner but somehow the home fighter get the decision. The only really bad one i can recently recall at a decent level was Burns - Beltran and Ricky is giving Beltran the chance to avenge that loss.

At least in Britain the Refs are impartial - when fighters go to Germany they appear to be fighting two men in the ring the majority of the time.

His comment doesn't lead to that conclusion.

Dave Parris and Terry O'Connor are impartial?

Doesn't matter he was an incompetent fool that literally gave your Glass Jawed fighters wins. He was a disgrace.
