No, I think you forgetting the eye catching last 30 second rallies that Eubank produced, and often impressed the judges. I had Watson winning, but the fight was close enough for me not to feel to hard done by for Watson, particularly as Watson (sadly, with hindsight) got a rematch.

There is a big difference between a close fight, that you felt went to the wrong fighter, and a robbery. Eubank was never in a robbery.

Holmes also benefitted from a couple of arguable ones himself,though. Against Tim Witherspoon and Carl Williams. I'm not claiming that the challengers should have definitely got the nod,but they were close enough for arguement.

I agree with you on THIS one Alex. I recall watching it as it happened. I'm surprised my neighbours on either side never complained about my language

All Ali got was gift decisions ie Norton, favouritism in referees and then liston who fixed both fights and im even more adamant the first liston clay fight was fixed after il duce's refereeing report.
Even allowing for the 'controversial' clinching,Ali employed the right tactics to beat Joe on that night. There's also a case of Perez's....erm....'tinnitus' when he heard bells too early on in the second round,after Muhammad had stunned Joe.

I thought Ali-Frazier 2 was very close.
Frazier was landing some heavy leather in there.
Ali landed more punches but some were really light, and he did all the stalling.
I think I had Ali winning it by a very close 6-5-1. At least 4 of the rounds were dead close.

How 'bout Ali in the 1970's....he won some of them because of who he was..not because he deserved the decision!!!

i can see it going either way but if the ref wasnt such a **** and stuck to the rules frazier would have most likely won.

As you say,some of the rounds were very close. At the time I watched it last,I scored it 7-4-1 Ali.

What about if Perez had n't have been stricken with his sudden bout of tinnitus,in the second round ? I'm not saying that it was set in stone that Ali would have stopped Frazier,but one will always wonder.
