    Like either because of long count or for whatever reason...basically one fighter was robbed of a KO.

    I believe Cintron v Martinez should have been a KO if memory serves, no?

    I also have Librado Andrade vs Lucian Bute, Wilder vs Fury 1, and Charles vs Marciano (not exactly a fight that went the distance, but Charles should have been awarded the TKO victory all the same)

    Who else we forgetting?

    Tyson claims he beat Douglas cause of a long count. Said it never should have gotten to the KO round.

    Honestly I grew up thinking the same thing. I saw the fight live when I was 9 years old and didn't see it again for about 15 years after that .

    After researching I did not think the count was long

    I guess I bought that it was long too for a while. Tyson did that performance around the country where he would speak and then do the count in real time and prove his victory. In a way he had a point, but that isn't really how the count works in the ring. Humans have to react to the situation, and each referee handles it differently.

    The Mcclellan camp still thinks he had a first round KO over Benn.

    Well I think it was more King pushing the narrative but the weird thing is I never saw any of that , I just watched the fight live and was convinced the count was long.

    It wasn't till many years later I caught a replay on ESPN classic and made it a point to watch the count

    Vitali v Briggs should have been stopped.

    Floyd Mayweather vs Zab Judah. While there was no KO, this one shouldn't have gone the distance, but should have ended with a DQ, after uncle Roger stormed into the ring to confront Judah after he low blowed Floyd.

    There was some pretty odd carry-on in the Donaire-Inoue fight round 11. Donaire was knocked out for all intents and purposes - the referee's count and his bizarre intervention in stopping Inoue following up his body shot while Donaire was still on his feet and turning his back to buy some extra time were both a bit iffy.

    Ken Norton-Scott Ledoux.

    Ledoux should've been given the stoppage win.

    I agree with this. I felt like they robbed Inoue a KO win, but to Donaire's credit he still showed heart and will to keep fighting on even after getting the snot kicked out of him. What a fight.
