Boxing matches are scored on clean punching, defense, ring generalship, and effective aggression.

I would assume in a country like Mexico aggression and clean punching would put you in a favorable position with the judges.

Stop acting like germany is the only country. Its annoying.

Germany is not better or worse then other countries.Just look at the aussies. They change a 12 round fight in to a 10 round fight because their star is going to get ktfo.
Was just a joke mate. Could have said any country.

Truth is its not the country that 'influences' a fight, it's the promoter. The promoters just tend to be promoting the home fighter. Robberies happen everywhere.

American judges are always blatantly biased towards their fighters.
