    I'm glad I saw there was some variety in the cards on this forum, gives a little credibility that a disinterested observer could see a draw/narrow Smith win.

    Yes, Joe Smith hurt Vlasov a lot more, but this is boxing and the guy who win the rounds should win the fight.

    I thought Vlasov won more rounds. I just didn't expect Joe to get the nod.

    It was a cheap shot that should have had a point deducted

    Joe should have lost a point for that stunt...two clear clubbing punches to the back of the head.

    Vlasov fought a hell of a fight though and respect to him. I thought a draw would have been appropriate to be fair.

    So sad that a bunch of us called this BS decision. You could literally see ESPN laying the ground work for this decision. **** it. I'm going to bed.

    reasonable decision. Draw or one point was good, the 115-112 was too wide.

    I thought the back of the head shot was a good call by the ref.

    Joe pulled it out in the last two rounds.

    Why on earth are they allowed 3 American judges and an American ref for a bout with an American vs Russian?

    We get 2 British officials in a fight with a Brit and a foreigner and it's 2 too many...

    A draw would have been just about fair, I can't find more than 6 rounds for Joe tho.

    Seriously. People talk about a robbery yet they didn't even give more than 1 round to Smith. Talk about Ward being a bad judge ? Geez you can't make this stuff up.

    Smith was cut very early in that fight without the early cut which clearly bothered Smith I think he stops vlasov
