It makes me angry, but I'm not angry with them.

Are you referring to most of Clottey's wins?

Did Helenius celebrate after hearing the decision?

Fuk man I did shut down my tv just before the fight did end.
There were alot of finns leaving the arena before the decision was announced because they knew also Helenius lost.

One of the worst such acts I've ever seen was John Ruiz' celebrating a draw verdict in his third fight with Evander Holyfield.

So clear was Holyfield's should have been lopsided victory, Ruiz shamelessly celebrated the decision of a draw by jumping up and down and making faces of esctacy as if he had just conquered the ****ing universe.

It was a shameless act by Ruiz and it did tick me off.

I laugh at it now. I find it hillarious that a fighter would go bonkers in the ring over the announcement he's just been gifted of a draw!


Btw, thats one of the things that I took to Holyfield for.
He never celebrated in the ring when he knew he put in a poor performance. The first Lewis fight for example.

.....and on the flipside, he did'nt stress himself out when decisions were shamelessly taken away from him. The 3rd Ruiz fight for example, and in some sense, when wide scores were read in his rematch with Lewis when many had either Holyfield winning, and even those that scored for Lewis had the fight close.

Thats the character of the man, he did'nt go over the top whether the decision went for him or against him.
