    It was still a gift stoppage, as I have watched it in opposite to you (apparently) and he was announced with some more defeats I think.
    The place where it took place had no relation with the outcome?:dunno
    Tua got outboxed even more comfortable than by Maskajew, Oquendo and the first Rahman bout.

    Of you, of course (apparently)!
    I showed you few of the links, you didn't bring any sources. So I proved my point and you couldn't disprove it, therefore you get rude.

    I'm giving you guys a break from trolling here for a minute to suggest the Vincente Rondon Vs. Jimmy Dupree 175 title fight where Dupree cleaned Rondon's clock early and then slowly wound down into an exhausted mess by round five and stopped in six. Later a nurse who travelled to Caracas with Dupree detailed symptoms that she believed showed he had been drugged and was very professionally convincing. Made Ring Magazine at the time. Forgotten now.

    I could show you many links that show no hint of controversy, but one thing we all have learned on here is that you’ll never concede that you’re wrong.

    Dupree just punched himself out swinging for the fences and became exhausted. He was throwing haymakers the entire fight trying to score a KO and exhausted himself.

    Am I, are you serious?:duh
    When I show you some links which verify it was recgarded as controversial by some media and communities and you pretend before there is nothing in the web, as you didn't find anything on your google search (the same as I used here), you are just hypocrite, dishonest and a liar!

    I have proven there are some rumours about it and that you are wrong with your allegation, there is nothing at all!
    So you expose yourself now as a troll and a biased Brittard...


    When even the British (biased) commentator didn't have Eubanks winning it, how can this decision not be controversial? I have showed you my score of this, but we still wait for your scorecard here!!
    My point was, it is comparable with Lewis vs. Mercer and Marquez vs. Pacquaio II.

    And by the way I can show you lots of links that Ottke vs. Reid was not controversial, but a clear win for the first...

    You have proven there are some rumours about it!?!
    So, was there outrage or was it just a rumour!??
    As for you accusing someone of bias and being a troll, well what can I say.

    Really... There's been quiet a few and my opinion is not going to be popular with some... One that comes to my mind is the Hagler vs Leonard. Had Hagler attack Leonard the way he viciously did against Hearns, did Leonard had a chance ? He would have end up in the hospital or with brain damage. Leonard vs Benitez... Very close fight in times when a challenger really had to take the tittle from the champions, meaning judges would not give you the belt unless challengers won decisively.. Benitez barely bleeding from the forehead and I mean barely bleeding, with I think 17 seconds to end the 15th and final round, referee stops the fight... There was never a rematch.. Canelo Alvarez until time came to fight triple G, had no stamina at all.. He just couldn't fight 3 minutes in a round because he would run out of air, then he fights Golavkin and moves for all 12 rounds easily.. ( do you smell steroids ). A weight catch was implemented in boxing so two good fighters from two different weight class could meet without the bigger guy having so much size adavantage.. But NONE this would not apply for tittle fights.. Pacquiao fights old Coto after he gets kncockout by Margarito for the welterweight title and Coto had to weight in below the 147... Old DeLahoya comes back years after retirement and fighting as a middleweight to fight Pacquiao and also has to weight below the 147... Margarito moves up to the 154 ( Jr. Middleweight ) fights Pacquiao for the " vacant " Jr. Middlewight title and is forced to go down below the 154.... Who's to blame ??? $$$$$$$$

    Well it was your claim, that there was nothing. I proved it was and not only by fans, but journalists and Rocky himself.
    Not only some, but there are a lot of references about it, what can be find (I found at least 5 different sources, just on the first two google search result pages).
    Well you act like one, as you can't accept when a Brit got benefit abroad.
    Remeber there was no German official in this fight. This subject is about (close) questionable decisions, which could have gone the other way qnd are not remembered as such. So you showed this perefectly fit into this category, as most forgot it.

    You also avoid to show your detailed scorecard. Although I offered you to send you the fight (with English commentary), at least the second half of it.

    The thread title says “highly controversial fights that are forgotten”
    It simply wasn’t highly controversial, a few people here and there thinking Rocchigiani should have got the verdict doesn’t make it thus.
    I repeat there was no mass outrage at the decision.

    It is, most people of the German speaking room have that opinion and when even the British commentator doesn't have Eubanks in front, then it have to be highly controversial (as I remember theses digusting bias of for instance the house commentator of Andy Lee against Brian Vera among others). The English commentators are known to be cheering for the home channel boxer.

    There are certainly more than of others here mentioned fights as Tunney vs. Greb II, Ruenroeng vs. Casimero I or Parker vs. Whyte.
    And it is one precondition to be forgotten, that only few people remember about it (as questionable decision).

    You always come with new excusioses, as you first alleged it there no comments/ rumours in the internet at all and that Google doesn't show such. I proved you wrong and now you change the terms and have different demands than first.

    Why don't you simple admit, that there are some rumours and that I am right (was fully correct with my claim)?
    Will you compete McTono as worst and most dishonest user here?:dunno
