Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Basically, what are some fights where the right guy won, but there was at least one scorecard that was totally wrong.

For instance, Lopez beat Lomachenko in October, but 119-109 was an obviously terrible scorecard.

Or Mayweather beating Canelo by Majority decision when most people agree Mayweather won every round.

What are some others you can think of?

There are so many, you could pick examples at random all day.

Ugas-Ramos, one judge had it 117-111 Ramos, but the funny thing is, the 2 judges that gave the fight to Ugas had bad scores as well.

Toney-Jirov was one where I believe The right guy won but the margins were way too wide.

Cissokho-Conway, bad cards all around

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Mayweather Canelo. Mayweather got the decision but Canelo got an inexplicable 114-114 score in a fight where he didn't win a round

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Leonard Hagler too. I think Leonard edged it if I remember correctly but one judge scored it 118-110 Leonard. Ridiculous.

Teofimo Lopez Vs Vasiliy Lomachenko. I thought Lopez won but it was a close fight. 115-113 or 116-112 seemed like the right kind of scores. Lomachenko definitely won 4 clear rounds. That 119-109 scorecard was a fucking joke and the 117-111 was a bad one too

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Canelo vs Golovkin 1 is a recent case. I personally thought a draw was reasonable given how close the fight was, but one judge scored the fight 118-110 to Canelo. In such a close fight, how do you come to the conclusion that GGG only won 2 rounds?

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Mayweather won very round vs Canelo, no way a MD.

what Champ said

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Salvador Sanchez vs Pat Cowdell: no less than 8 points for the Mexican. Scoring it for Englishman was crazy.

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

Donaire vs Rigondeaux. It was a dominant win for Rigondeaux that should have been scored wide in his favor, but instead, it was a razor-thin victory.

Re: Bad Scorecards with the Right Decision

True: no more than 3 rounds for the Filipino, maybe only one.
