    The man is absolutely shocking and should be investigated. He was asked on the same show what he could do to improve boxing's image in the light of football taking steps to lessen the impact of head trauma and said something like ''I don't listen to social media trolls.'' Smith is the worst type of 'I'm alright Jack' opportunist that attach to boxing like leeches to a wound. He's the Gordon Taylor of Boxing, reaping all the benefits he can get his hands on with absolutely no accountability.

    British Boxing will always be rotten to the core when you have the current people in charge of the sport.

    Spud Peri O'Donor has produced incredible cards over a long career and nothing done. The Martinez card the latest in a long line of shockers in British rings over the years and will continue with the same clowns in charge of the circus.

    Would not wish this on Warrington but imagine he was hit by a Hayemaker in the 5th and ended up like Michael Watson or Mike Towell? Could easily have happened on Sat and the BBBOC response would have backed the ref as normal.

    Foster was a bigger disgrace than the judges in the Barrett fight along with Warrington's corner - total disgrace the lot of them.

    There is no end to the BBBOC arrogance.

    Just nonsense.

    Boxing as a whole, but British boxing specifically is all just one massive happy corrupt con where everyone looks the other way because nobody benefits from challenging the hegemony.

    Somebody in another thread mentioned the lack of new officials and it’s a really good point. Every decent level fight in this country over the last 10 or 15 years (excluding those big world title fights with neutral officials) have been refereed and judged by the same 8 or 9 guys, and the same thing happens again and again, and outside of a few on forums and social media, nobody bats an eyelid.

    Smith really is the most odious man in British boxing. At least Warren and Hearn’s jobs are to be bullshitters and salesmen, but Smith and the board are meant to be there to police this **** and be an independent arbiter. Horrendous old boys club.

    Wow, so he scored it 8-4? Well his two colleagues scored it around the 10-2 mark so even his appalling judgement doesn't account for their scoring. Clowns. Corrupt clowns. Who's pulling the strings behind all this, Sepp Blatter?

    The board is rotten to the core - if this is what this cnut is saying in public, you can only imagine what he’s like in private.

    None of this scoring mess is going to change unless they get hit in the pocket from the promoters.

    Basically made you realise they don't care and have no thoughts of changing it. Be like the home gymnast falling on their ass on landing and still getting 9.5

    Isle of Man to become the mecca of British Boxing!

    All the betting companies are based there to be fair.

    Firstly I have to say the BBBoC is fantastic in terms of it's medical care... British boxing is probably the best in the world in that sense.

    However when it comes to scenarios like this (which are happening far too often on British soil), Robert Smith is so ignorant and out of touch it is border line farcical.

    I remember straight after the Froch Groves 1 dismal ending when Howard Foster ruined everyone's night..... Robert Smith done an interview straight after defending the stoppage and his pal Foster saying it was absolutely fine without even watching it back.

    Hugely disappointing. I remember Robert Smith as a talented and brave Fighter and his Dad, Andy, as the fiercely independent manager of Joe Bugner and Dave "Boy" Green. I was hugely optimistic when Robert took over as General Secretary of the Board but he has become an apologist for the unacceptable.

    If Robert Smith had an ounce of decency he would resign.
