There is no escape in corruption regardless of sport, profession or even lifestyle.

In every major sport there is bound to be fixes. Too much potential money floating around for there not to be. I'm sure there are plenty of judges who walked away from fights with more than their reported salary. And some fighters who walked away with a little more than their reported purse.

Of course. There are some fixed fights that make real fights and the rest of boxing look bad.

There's that one real obvious one of that former NFL player, where he clearly didn't even land a punch. The boxer is Ray Edwards.

Likar Ramos reaction to Marquez lunging right hand looked very suspect.

Wilder-Scott looked fake as f-ck.

Garcia-Herrera robbery.
Malik Scott taking a dive against Wilder.

Both happened on the same card. Both fights were fixed (In Garcia-Herrera's case, it was the scorecards that were fixed).

It depends which way the pendulum swings..the promoters/managers stack the cards in there fighters favour.andre wards clinching gets overlooked on purpose by the ref..so yeh they get fixed.

Some are, but I think fighters go in the tank (prepaid to lose) way less often than in earlier generations.

Fights have been fixed for years................

As explained below, we are not leveling accusations against anyone in particular, and only seek an investigation to learn the truth and, if appropriate, punish the guilty. As evidenced by this week’s guilty plea in your District by Robert Mittelman to charges that he fixed fights and then unsuccessfully sought to bribe both a federal judge in your District and an Assistant United States Attorney in your Office, it is regrettably all too possible that someone sought to illegally influence the outcome of the Klitschko/Brewster bout. We believe that the facts of record to date more than justify a full investigation by your Office.

Refer to the Judd letter

In this regard, it should be noted that identifying unusual changes in the odds has been an effective weapon in ferreting out the fixing of sporting events. As reported on March 31, 2002 by Edward Epstein of the San Francisco Chronicle: “The [gaming] industry also claims that Nevada casinos have tipped off the FBI to a few college basketball point-shaving scandals over the past several years by looking for unusual betting patterns on games.” Further, a key ground for the general consensus that the March 1999 draw in the Lennox Lewis/Evander Holyfield bout was the product of corrupt judging, was the fact that the odds on that fight went from 11-5 in Lewis’s favor to “pick ‘em” by the time of the fight. Of course, the swift change in the odds on the Klitschko/Brewster fight were far more dramatic and therefore much more indicative of foul play.
