    Not a shame he got ripped up and didn't acknowledge.

    I would have great respect for Ritson as a man if he simply was honest stating that he thought he lost that fight - nothing worse than someone making out they thought they won a fight when clearly not the case.

    There's a genuine picture on twitter of O'Connor looking at his phone during the fight. Seriously! The man needs sacking and a beating for good measure. A scumbag!

    I liked Ritson, but not gonna lie, I'll be hoping to see him get KOed every time I see him fight now.

    Apart from the dodgy scores that was a fun night of boxing.

    Laws fought like he was outside a taxi rank at 3 in morning. Believed his own rubbish, loading up on every shot, not setting anything up, leaving his chin up in the air. No respect for his opponents power and he got exposed badly for it. Well done, Charlton.

    Was impressed with Leach, some class movement and angles, roughed up Ashfaq for good measure too.

    Always baffles me when fighters with no pop in their shots start trying to have a tear up instead of sticking to their strengths. Ward fought a daft fight tonight and was very lucky with the draw.

    Sadly, I’m not surprised with the Ritson v Vasquez scorecards at all. Watched it on mute but turned the sound on for the scorecards, the DAZN commentators were utterly convinced that Ritson had won which baffled me. It didn’t matter what Vasquez did tonight, the fix was on.

    I bet he is like Mr Creosote in the hotel restaurant racking up those Matchroom expenses.

    If that had been in the Premier League, O'Connor's next match would be in the local park.

    I don't think the problem is matchroom paying off the judges per se.

    The problem is Hearn constantly brings in **** judges for important fights. Clearly he knows there likely to score and close fights, or important fights to his fighters.

    You can guarantee phrases such as "this is an important fights at this stage of his career" etc are dropped in.

    Remember, the promotors have sway on the referees and judges and who gets picked for certain fights.

    Last one from me but whilst Spud O'connor is rightfully getting a barrage, let's not forget Michael Alexander also turned in an atrocious card.

    He's another who's virtually just as poor as O'connor.
