They do. And i only know because I heard Steve Bunce explaining the process of scoring very clearly.

Hearing his explanation makes it an even more bizarre decision. watched the whole fight again last night with a more measured eye. He was robbed.

Why do Boxers so frequently end up in this situation?

This was one of the most blandest and mediocre fights I have seen, in many a year.

on TV, I've seen Ali, Foreman, Spinks, Bruno, (mike)Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis,...and any of them would have been embarrassed at the 'fight'.

I would not suggest it was rigged. But the whole episode was a massive blemish on boxing history.
There might be a lot of hyperbole but I cannot agree with this at all. I thought it was a very decent fight indeed. If that was the most bland and mediocre fight you have have seen in many years. You cannot watch that many fights. I have seen several this year that were nowhere near as entertaining.

Fury boxed beautifully and Wilder was clearly dangerous throughout. Fury provided the impressive boxing and wilder provided the jeopardy to make sure the shut out never felt inevitable.

Blemish on boxing history? That's simply nonsense.

This crop are never going to live up to the golden era you mention. I would genuinely suggest not tuning in if you are hoping it will. However the division is as interesting and entertaining as it's been in nearly 20 years. Despite it's lack of true quality and depth I would sooner watch the heavyweights we have now than watch the likes of frampton and warrington. I appreciate that is not the purists view but ultimately if you remove the jeopardy and the personality. It's just one midget i don't care about, out pointing another.

As i say, i watched it through a second time and thought it was a truly engrossing match up - different styles, great technique from Fury, heart and plenty of punches. What wasn't to like?

And I find it amusing to include Bruno in that list (as good as he was). Pretty certain Lewis, Tyson and Holyfield have all expressed how good they thought it was.

I suspect it has something to do with them being paid in lump sums. As well as having long periods of inactivity. Add to this they generally come from poor backgrounds and often aren't lucky enough to have good advise around them.

In fairness it seems quite common in lots of sportsmen. You hear about the ones that blow it disproportionately as well.

I enjoyed it.

As Scro said, skill v jeopardy, it is a mix that breeds excitement for the audience.

Would a mike Tyson in his prime beat them both, yes of course, would a lewis in his pomp, yes by a mile. However the heavyweight division has been dead for years now, suddenly there is competition (albeit not at the highest ever level) which makes it interesting and knowing that they could all knock each other out in a blink of an eye (except maybe Fury) cements the interest in the division.

The fights between the 3 main men will be huge and rightly so.

Well the judges (and referees) purses, accommodation and expenses are paid by the lead promoter so fixing is not beyond the realms of fiction. Whilst the boxers clearly weren't involved in fixing the draw was a little delusional.

I read the start of that and i am sure like with anything there is room for corruption. Clearly the sanctioning body should provide the judges without any interference from promoters. The stuff about who pay's them is a little misleading though. In part because of course the money originates from the home promoter. It's no good brushing over this part:

"For appearances sake, the promoter hands the check over to the commission, who then delivers it to the judges."


That is a key point still! They are not paid by the promoter.

There may well be issues of biased "home" judging. I also think the sport needs to consider whether technology and verified stats could be used more effectively rather than subjective judging (or perhaps alongside it).

I think Fury claiming he is a "fighting man" then belly aching about a points decision having spent two rounds on his arse and having never really hurt his opponent is a little rich. I agree with him he won.. but ultimately that would be a winning loss for wilder if ever there was such a thing (when considering "the fight").

I'm not sure this changes it much to be honest. I'm paid via a payroll company but i still know who really pays the bills. Coupled with the fact that the 'home' promoting team also picks the judges it's no wonder there are so many suspect decisions.

The Fury fight not being anywhere near one of the worst mind.

Surely the money paid to the sanctioning body covers all kinds of stuff as well as the wages of the judges. How else would you expect the sanctioning body to get the money if not from the promoter? The promoter also effectively pays both boxers because the event generates the pot from which everyone is paid.

The vast majority of the pot comes from the TV companies. So are we concerned that sky/HBO/Showtime etc. are actually influencing decisions? I just don't think the judges are paid from the revenue generated and therefore via the promoter is in itself concerning. The fact the payment goes through the sanctioning body is key. Because it clearly regulates the amounts and prevents the judge from having to come into contact with the promoter at all (albeit i accept they may still do so).

I do think the judges should be assigned by the sanctioning body and the fighters and promoters should have no say. I don't agree that because they are paid out of the money generated from the event that they are easily corruptible though. If you have judges that are prepared to be kind for the sake of work and expenses in the future this would be solved overnight by doing it this way. Albeit you clearly have a limited list of sanctioned judges to choose from.

The main issue here is that the promotors get to handpick which judges they use. This should be selected by the sanctioning body and not disclosed to ensure they can't be bribed. On top of this, the judges that are picked know that if they piss off the promotor by not favouring their fighter, they're likely to be out of work for a while.

Agree but you would hope in becoming an approved judge for whatever sanctioning body your integrity would have been a factor. They should remove the doubt though and just have the WBC in this case choosing the judges.

You can of course appeal a decision at which point the wbc will review it. I wonder why the fury team hasn't asked for this?

2️⃣ Tyson Fury has been upgraded to #2 in the Ring Magazine heavyweight rankings - ahead of Deontay Wilder (#3) and behind only Anthony Joshua (#1) - due to the fact every member of their ratings panel felt he beat Wilder last Saturday.

I’ve subsequently watched the fight again and only a blind person could think anything other than that. In reality it’s testament to how poor wilder was in reality. His post fight technical points are hilarious. I used to like listening to b-hop talk technical intricacies but after he had implemented them and negated an opponents younger years and strength. Wilder just sounds like a bloke that knows he lost 9 rounds comfortably.
