    Juan Coggi-Eder Gonzalez was disgusting.

    The referee stopping the count so Luis Krasniqi could get up against Lamon Brewster was bad.

    It was also bad when the corners of Arturo Gatti and Arthur Abraham were allowed to work on the cuts in the middle of the round in their fights with Joe Hutchinson and Edison Miranda. Still, that was nothing compared to Coggi-Gonzalez I.

    That wasn't home cooking. That was a straight up fixed fight.

    Tommy Farr seemed to get jobbed fairly consistently.

    I guess he should have had the good sense to be born in America.

    Eubank-Mauricio Amaral. Disgraceful verdict. Part of Eubank's ****ty 'world tour' in which he received constant gift decisions.

    Eubank just a had style that was sometimes not pleasing to watch. But as thick as he is as a person, he did have an excellent boxing brain. He had a way of fighting hardish in the 30 seconds of a round that seemed to sway judges in his favour in the close rounds that could of gone either way.

    In the match room before the fight?

    There was absolutely no evidence Matchroom were running the WBO; Nigel Wenton deserved that title shot! You don't just beat Scott Sala and not expect to get rewarded.;)
