Default Where was the controversy?

Every person on the setanta coverage scored it for Joe....

....so why did the ape who presents it keep saying there was controversial scoring??

We got the right result, they came across as typical brits last night, think most of them were upset that he got the decision.

No controversy. Just one fighter getting beaten by anothr fighter who was better than him.



I have never been so happy to have my pre fight prediction exposed as a myth.

yeh mcenzie predicted JC had won. I had it 114 - 113 but i think if i had been 100% neutral i might have had it to Hopkins by 1 point like my mate did, Round 10 is what we scored different.

I can see why a judge would score all but 2 rounds to hopkins, and all but 3 to calzaghe.

i thought the 116 - 111 score was a bit wide...2 points either way would have been fair.

The live streaming site I was watching went down after round 4, but up until then Joe looked awful. He was not even throwing enough punches and looked tentative and lethargic.

He took away all joes strenghths and landed all the cleaner shots.

Hope hokins retires now tho as he cant keep up a good pace its just hit and hold,5yrs ago he wouldnt av let joe off hook in 1st like he did last night,Its just his gr8 ringcraft that gets him through the 12 rnds nowadays.

Yeah but Mckenzie has always sounded like a tit.
I've not seen the fight yet so I cant venture an opinion but I've never found him to be particularly informative.

I agree he sounds like a tit but we're talking about his ability to score fights here.

That supposed to make any difference ? You ever listened to Terry Venebles, Tony Adams etc talking about football ? They talk utter ****.

You get people who have won world cups in football but they never get things right. Look at Pele predicted Columbia to win a world cup, they went out early and one of their players was shot dead.

Fair points but I would still be more inclined to listen to their opinions as opposed to yours. Terry Venables, an ex England Manager & Tony Adams, side kick to one of the most underated managers in the premiership.

Pele clearly has mental problems. He once said Nicky Butt was the best player in the world. He also promotes impotency awareness.

Not was the best, he still is the best. He is up there with Figo, Hagi, & Maradonna etc.

Still talk **** and as for Adams, good player but pathetic football pundit and manager. Did sweet FA when he was managing by himself. All Redknapps work at pompey, even without Adams Redknapp would manage ok.
