Default Re: Were there any "robberies" in history in which you scored for the actual winner?

Scored Chavez - Whitaker a draw like the judges did.

Scored DLH - Quartey for DLH, I also never understood where the robbery here took place.

Scored DLH - Sturm a draw, if that means anything.

Scored Leonard - Hagler for SRL, also never understood the big story of robbery behind it.

The big story was that everyone thinks SRL "had it easy" and Hagler didnt, completely ignoring that he earned everything he got, fought better fighters, won a gold medal, AND beat Hagler despite being out of the ring for years and never having fought at middleweight.

I actually scored Peter vs Toney I with my eyes open and had Peter clearly winning despite the showtime announcers being James Toney fangirls..

I also had Chris John beating JMM without controversy.
7 rounds to 5 for John, 2 points deductions to JMM. 115-111.

I'm also a huge Hopkins fan but scored the first fight for Taylor 115-113

Maybe I dont have the same thoughts of what is actually considered a "robbery" I dont believe any of those fights above where a robbery just hard fights to score and depending on what you score fights on will dictate the outcome. A robbery to me is a clear cut winner without doubts and they get the short end of the stick ex(casaymor and Cruz) (Jones jr 88 olympics fiasco. Most of those fights above are pretty close fights that you could make an argument for either. Anyway one that came to mind that I dont think was a "robbery" but surprised me was Hoya vs Sturm.

Widdow Maker had DLH over Sturm. I think he was the only one, anybody else?

I had Ottke winning the Brewer rematch, dont remember but I thought some here called it a robbery.

Speaking of which, as I watched that Casamayor/Cruz fight, I didn't see the 10 rounds to 2 that the HBO guys did. AT ALL. Wasn't surprised by decision one bit.

I just keep asking: what exactly did Cruz DO in that fight?

this is what I'm talking about.

Even the american judge named OSCAR PEREZ had it 116-110 for John.

Maybe I was a little bit too biased towards JMM

No thanks.

I will say, on a smaller level, that I didn't think Forrest/Quartey was the robbery everyone thought it was.

aww man arent you that guy who scored the 1988 roy jones fight for the Korean?
