    the thing is theres no way it was a robbery. the fight was scored a draw. people on the announce team scored it to Pascal as did press row. He has as much right to complain.

    also Pascal is not some super smart media savvy guy and english is his 2nd language. he has a rematch with Dawson so gray was wrong to push him like that.

    How could Pascal possibly have got anything better than a draw. He gets two 10-8 rounds if you're being generous there, one could probably should be a 10-9. That's 4 points up, he didn't win more than 2 other rounds. Scoring it for Pascal is ridiculous.

    i had it a draw.

    rounds 2,4,5,8,12 could of been scored for Pascal without much argument along with the two KO rounds.

    Anything from 115-111 to Pascal to 115-111 Hopkins is a fair score. It was a tough fight to score. Anyone with it wider than 115-111 Hopkins is being bias.

    I do not agree it should be a 10-9 people are to quick to score rounds that way.

    2,4,5,8,12 were all very close rounds. Give them to Pascal with two 10-8s. I dont think thats to crazy.

    I thought he was a bit of a **** myself. Tarver scored the fight for Pascal so its not as though the whole Showtime crew thought that it was a robbery.

    I remember when Gray insulted Kostya Tszyu told Gray that he was a very rude person! He was correct.

    I don't think he realised that Chads got next on Pascal in the rematch clause because he kept the belt. I thought it was a bit disrepectful interviewing B-Hop first.

    Other than Tarver, I don't think anyone had pascal winning. And he admitted it could easily have been scored the other way.

    That's why gray's questions were so idiotic. It was a close fight. That's about the size of it.

    In boxing usually the loser is the better interview.Although ruled a draw-B-Hop was defined as the loser in this bout.

    The interviewer should be impartial. I think he must have been rooting for bernard!

    Also 116-113 hopkins. After the kds i gave pascal a share of rounds 5 and 12.

    Bernard won the rest

    Gray's a *****, is so biased towards american fighters! remember when froch beat taylor the first thing gray did was question the stoppage! tbh i scored it for pascal but it coulda easily gone the other way but to call it a robbery is stupid.

    I thought it was standard for the champion to be interviewed first. Gray just came across as abrasive and rude other interviewers find ways of asking the necessary questions whilst maintaining impartiality
