Default Retired Elite boxers with Zero controversial decision wins?

Its safe to say that at least 95% of all elite fighters have 1 or more controversial decision wins, but who are some retired top level boxers that didn't have one decision win that was controversial?

Two that come to mind for me who most likely never had one are Mike Tyson and Julian Jackson, but with those two, either they won hard or lost hard.

Pernell's SD win over Wilfredo Rivera was controversial with many feeling he lost that fight, which is why Pernell gave him a rematch. As for the other 3 I'm not so sure but you may be right, especially with Hamed who most of the time kayoed his opponents.

I have never scored the first fight for Rivera. A classic case of a contender doing better than he was thought to have done pre-fight by "experts" in a losing effort.



Tiger Flowers....? Seamus?

nah not at all the case, even ESB's resident Pernell fanatic sweetscientist will tell you that fight could have been scored for Rivera.

And keep in mind just because you felt Pea won doesn't mean it wasn't controversial.

Did Hearns win a controversial decision? Did Hagler? I don't think Lennox did, unless you count Mercer.
