Earlier in the day I was talking to a neighbor sports fan about the upcoming two title fights to be broadcast live on the Fox network
- He said much of boxing is rigged - I was incredulous, having been a boxing fan for many years, and yes I saw some decisions that
might be questionable - but none to make me think the sport was crooked - With decisions bought and paid for
- Until tonight.......

The fight:
"Jermell Charlo (31-0-0, 15 KOs) defends his WBC World super welterweight title vs. Tony Harrison (27-2-0, 21 KOs)".

Did you see the fight? - One of the most one sided fights, dominated by Charlo, I've ever seen - with the Fox sports announcers saying the
same thing throughout the fight - Charlo won almost every round, no matter how you looked at it - And the statistics at the end ot the
fight showed the obvious winning by Charlo.

Guess what?
The Judges gave the fight by unanimous decision to Harrison!

FOUL FOUL, FOUL


A bought and paid for fight decision is an affront to boxing, to all sports - And an affront to the United States and sports fans everywhere.

I thought they cleaned up boxing years ago - what has happened? - The fight took place in Brooklyn, NY - I guess the spirits of the old
crooked gambler/fixers die hard - Was it their ghosts that rigged this fight decision


I guess a crooked ghost is hard to stop!

Boxing has always been influenced by crooked gamblers. Same thing is true with many sporting events.

I thought Harrison landed the better shots, albeit fewer and at a lesser percentage... I thought the 2nd Charlo got beat up worse than the first one and he got a UD victory.


Surprised to see a cash cow have the belt taken from him like that. Of course there is a tremendous amount of politics (money) behind the scenes.


I have Hurd walking both the twins down after tonight's performances. I then have Spence cutting Hurd in half and coming out with all the belts.

Most of what you see on TV is fake and stages. Stop paying for it and most importantly stop watching it.

Thai kick boxing is all staged for profit and to keep the fighters in business and of course their managers.

The world series is fake,the superbowl is fake,hockey is fake, etc etc??

Professional wrestling has more truth and clarity than your post does.

As far as boxing is concerned,you can see from the judging just in this last year,that it is as corrupt as Washington.
If you want a fair outcome,you have to knock someone out or the judges will screw you.

The match ups in some fights don't even make sense sometimes and that should be a big clue right there.

It also happen here in Japan with sumo wrestling. It was very big and I mean very big news. Sumo lost its TV program with NHK, now that tells you about corruption. but now all is well and sumo continues

Boxing is a world sport. Not a U.S. sport.

Just thought i would correct that.

"The broadcasters on the Premier Boxing Champions card on Fox -- former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and famed trainer Joe Goossen -- strongly disagreed with the result, as did Larry Hazzard Sr., the Fox unofficial scorer, who had Charlo winning 117-111. ESPN.com also had it 117-111 for Charlo."

A CROOKED RULING, IS A CROOKED RULING, IS A CROOKED RULING


No excuse is good enough - It was obvious who won that fight.

Next question, is boxing dead
Or will it become like professional wrestling - not a sport at all

It will be about rating in the entertainment part of TV. In Japan , sumo is big, but it has died down a lot due the matches being "well you know what I mean". This is like American baseball where the pitcher lets the other team hit home runs. Sad, but it really is coming to the point of making money. How in the heck can a player make 60 million dollars in 4 years without the mafia behind it, this is just insane wages.

Wherever there is gambling there is a fix.
There have been many examples of this in boxing over the years, the Liston - Clay fight being an obvious one.

No-one can convince me that the result of the recent Wilder - Fury fight was not bent.
