Default Outrageous Robbery of Holyfield

I don't normally cry robbery when a decision doesn't go the way of the figher I support, but this decision was a JOKE.

They should order an immediate rematch. They deprived Evander of a career achievement that should have been his.

Unbelievable.

Default What a ****ing disgraceful utter shit!

This is total crap.

Same as the Larry Donald fight
Same as the first Ruiz fight
The Chagaev fight almost turned out to this piece of shit
And now Holyfield, winning 8-2-2 on my card, which is 118-112, clear cut victory, nothing close to be even a draw...

This utter piece of shit, it's not even funny...

****ING DIE YOU ****ING CHEATING BASTARDS!

Nonsense. Holyfield was in on this 100%. He knew the outcome.

Valuev 'fought' as if he didn't want the belt. Holyfield did barely anything either but at least his stuff looked good when it landed.

I hear you mate. I rarely put a fighter down, but Valuev is a disgrace. When he put his hands up after the bell rung i wanted an anvil to flatten him. I had that sick feeling that Holyfield was going to get robbed, and it happened.

Default This is the biggest robbery since Tyrone Everett vs. Alfredo Escalera

I've seen about 17.000 fights in my life since the early '70s, I've seen my fair share of robberies, but something like this...
If you take away fights that happened in the Carbo-Palermo era, this one probably belongs to the top-5 most disgraceful decision ever.
This is a bad night for boxing, we're just lucky this garbage was on PPV and it probably didn't generate more than 100.000 buys.

The fact that this was more of a sparring session than a boxing fight is utterly irrelevant: if you throw one punch per round and your opponent throws 0, you win the round.

Well I had Holyfield up by a point. This decision is bullshit. **** that. The german (swiss) public knew Holyfiled was the winner. Even Valuevs promoter said it was a draw.
