    Rep a recent British boxing robbery and I will add it to the OP so there is an easily searchable list available as a google resource on the internet. With the majority of boxing bouts being scored correctly is it simply the rub of the green or is something more underhand going on? Smith is on a lucrative career path at present with a possible Anfield date against Canelo in 2021 to launch UK DAZN so it does make you wonder, or is it simply all just in our heads? I will update with dates and scores as we go and see if we can spot any anomalies or repeat offenders.

    Good idea, Wilder - Fury springs to mind as a fight involving a Brit but wasn’t promoted by a British promoter.

    Ryder - Fielding...

    Froch - Groves 1 (dodgy stoppage but was very suspect).

    (M) Whyte vs Chisora, Whyte wins SD 115-114 (Alexander), 115 - 113 (Foster) 114-115 (Gray.) Not sure if that's a robbery given the scorecards are close, as was the fight, though I remember most scoring it for Del Boy.

    Don't remember the scores but Murray - Rosado wasn't good.

    7/9/13 Burns v Beltran in Glasgow - quite simply a one sided pasting over 12 rounds with Burns suffering a broken jaw in round 2.

    Credit to Burns and Billy Nelson for keeping going to the final bell but a draw was a sensational result given what happened in the ring.

    I genuinely think the Froch Groves I stoppage came about five seconds or so too early. But it was coming and Groves was a goner.

    Worst stoppage I’ve seen in a British ring in the last few decades both involve Enzo Maccarinelli. Ian John Lewis stooped him when there was absolutely nothing wrong with him, and then in Warren’s magnificent seven card (pretty sure he was fighting Alexander Frenkel) that Finnish ref let him go on when he was absolutely out of it.

    Some of the above aren’t robberies.

    Ryder vs Arnfield. Ryder won it but another one with terrible cards.

    Two of the cards were 117-114 and 118-110 to Arnfield.

    Whyte vs Chisora first fight wasnt a robbery. I actually watched recently again and had Whyte winning even more comfortably than I remeber.

    Ottke vs Reid is worst case of biased officiating I've ever seen.

    Fury vs McDermott & Ryder vs Smith were both very bad judging (Terry O' Connor!).

    Still can't believe fat arse O'connor had fury beating Mcdermott by six rounds, one of many from the greedy brown envelope taker.

    Yeah. For me that’s a good example of a fight where the big favourite ends up squeaking home against an outsider. People always cry robbery in those but for me Whyte just about won it. Couldn’t argue with a draw to be fair.

    I actually thought the cards in the rematch (in favour of Chisora) were a lot worse.

    That is the worst card ever produced - nothing will ever beat that one by Spud O'Connor

    He also had Smith winning by six on Saturday, unbelievable really. I reckon he fills the card in beforehand and has a nap during the fight.
