    Ive posted this before but....

    Nobody here has probably seen it, it was on ESPN back in the day so I know somewhere the tape exists, Marion Wilson (9-22-3 4 KOs) losing a wide 10 round decision to 12-2 3 KOs Robert Hawkins is the worst decision I've ever seen with the most questionable judging I've ever seen period. Hawkins was dropped and I think Two judges scored the fight 100-90.

    Wilson 42 loses never stopped, held Ray Mercer to a draw in 94, and has a lot of close decisions, Majority and split decisions. Went the distance with Briggs, McCall, Golota, Ibeabuchi, David Izon, Jimmy Thunder, Kirk Johnson, Rachman

    Aye a close un and the most controversial Joe fight i'd say, but I think he edged it too.

    Rewatched it recently, i thought nelson clearly won rounds 1,2 and 4 but clearly lost every round after that, in the last 4 rounds he started every round really well before fenech would come roaring back to win the round clearly in the second half
    A hell of a fight but a terrible decision

    A lot of unfortunates will answer this with ‘That time I went to a Johnny Nelson fight expecting to be entertained.’

    Buying that ticket was a terrible decision.

    I was 11 when this happened and even I was outraged. Good call.

    That was horrible. Azumah had his moments the first four rounds, but after that it was practically a wipe out. Fenech out hustled, out worked and out punched over the course of the fight. Even in the few low output rounds that were somewhat "close" with Nelson landing a bunch of smaller shots, Fenech was landing the far more damaging punches and should have won those rounds on that damage. After the first four rounds, almost all of Nelson's power was gone and he was just landing a lot of love taps. He landing some crushing right hand pull counters over the top of Azumah's jab. And Fenech absolutely mauled him in the clinch, going around and over the top of Azumah's cross guard and punishing his body.

    On top of all of that, Fenech went out and sealed the 12th round, too. A lot of fun inside fighting in that one, but the decision was despicable. 116-112 Nelson? Madness.
