a guy who used to work in my office that i talked boxing with agreed with the decision in the first holyfield-lewis fight, lost all respect for him that day.

I had Chris John beating JMM. Scored it 6 rounds each and the two point deductions made it 114-112 to John.

Had Peter beating Toney the first time too.

i had clinton woods beating glen johnson 114-113 in their first fight.

Also had Roy Jones beating Tarver in their first fight too, but that isn't that controversial is it?

I may have to agree that i did think Ray leonard did the right kind of work to beat Marvin, it may have been Marvin that made the fight so much more exciting but he boxed a very unintelligent fight , he knew that Ray was going to run and flick all night , he could have did similar by nullifying him and working the attacks late in each round, Hagler never had an actual gameplan, that is why he lost it.. It was close as hell, but in my eyes Hagler did not win the fans or the Judges by being the tough guy in an event like that..

A lot did and even i can see where you are coming from, but Ray was always going to do what he did , i was just very surprized that Marvin didn't make it more difficult for Ray to keep running and flurrying.. Marvin should have shut him down a lot more and made it harder for Sugar to convince his darling fans that he was winning by such means.. ie.. knocking that smile off his face .. he looked like it was so comfortable in there for Ray.. I just wish i knew what the judges were looking for that night.. Was it a show .. or an equal prize fight... ?? It was a very massive event.. and it was one of those nights that people were easily swayed by commentary or people arond the ringside area.. Too many people were pulling for Ray no matter what....

Ray had every celebrity at ringside rooting for him. Even Stevie Wonder said Ray won the fight

Yeah, three.

I scored Forrest/Quartey 95-94 for Forrest.
I scored Toney/Peter 114-113 for Peter.
Not a robbery, but I had Duran up against SRL 67-66 in SRL/Duran II.

DLH did to much running and too much postering even through the first 9 for me to call that effective boxing.

The way I remember it, I had DLH ahead by a point after 8 or 9 rounds, and I wound up giving Trinidad the remainder of the rounds.

Well, I didn't mean that I wanted you to rewatch the fight and rescore it. I asked just because a lot of people remember their scorecards, because it is such a controversial and talked about fight even now. I still remember my exact scorecard for Leonard-Hagler, for example.

Trinidad won nothing more than 5 rounds in that fight. When I ask people who had Tito winning, what rounds they gave to Tito, I always listen as answers:
"I don't remember" or "I don't have my scorecard here" or "Oscar ran for the last 4 rounds, so Tito won".

I had Forrest beating Quartey. I also had Oscar beating Quartey. (Not that I have anything against Ike; I actually like him as a fighter.)

I cant really think of any robberies that I agreed with.
Completely agree. Peter was pushing Toney back with all of his shots, and I dont know how these Hopkins hggers can say he clearly beat Taylor when he conceded the first 5 rounds of each fight.
