Lewis Holyfield 1 and 2 was just as controversial.

Hagler losing to Leonard- I can't ever give it to Marvin however much I try.

Hopkins to Calzaghe. More controversially, the one time I saw Mercado-Hopkins I, I had B-Hop slightly behind.

I've grown to like Froch over the last few years but for me he was a clear loser against Dirrell. However, I had him beating Kessler by a point which few agree with.

Along with Hopkins, Mares is my favourite current active fighter but in his close fights, I think he's deserved the nod in them all. He should have got the W over Perez, I thought he nicked it vs Vic and Agbeko 1 (though he should have been docked points or DQ'd) going by the referee as a judge should, he did enough to win that.

In Marquez-Vasquez III, which was close but not really controversial, I begrudgingly admit Rafa lost. But what makes it so annoying is that every time I see it, I have him a point up going into the last before that KD swings it completely.

A small part of me, very small part, feels that Michael Spinks lost that 1984 title defense against Eddie Davis.

I'm going with JMM-Pacquiao II too
exceptionnal intensity and level of skill between the two best pound for pound at the time.

I felt Wladimir Klitschko probably lost the 1st Sam Peter fight. I did not score the fight but I felt Peter won it closely.

Sven Ottke : I felt he lost to Robin Reid, Glen Johnson, the first Brewer fight and at least one of the fights against Thomas Tate.

I had Morales losing to Barrera in their first meeting, going strictly by the referee's discretion. Without the knockdown, it would have been a draw.

For the longest time, I had Marquez winning the first and third encounters with Pacquiao. Recently though, I have reversed my decision on the first two fights, and have settled on a draw for the third.

I have also recently amended my scores for Hagler-Leonard. I have only come to see Hagler's side of things this year. I distinctly remember heavily favoring Ray in this contest.

Ali lost many, many fights in his second run.

Toney likewise lost to Johnson, Tiberi, and McCallum (I).

How is that possible? It's one of the easiest fights to score, a clear 114-111 Wladimir Klitschko victory. Sam Peter won 3 rounds total, a 10-9 round, a 10-8 round, and a 10-7 round. Wladimir swept the other 9 rounds EASILY, outboxed Sam Peter the whole night.

Being a big Muhammad Ali fan does n't stop me admitting that Ken Norton won their third fight by around a 9 - 6 margin,and Muhammad would have been lucky in getting a draw in that terrible fight with Jimmy Young.

I didn't see it that way. There were a couple of other rounds you can or have to give to Sam Peter.
