Whats the point of even watching when the winner isn't awarded the win.

not the fix of the century, the century is only 12 yrs old

it was THE FIX of the last 60-70 years

I had bradley +611 by dec. and this is the biggest gift in my 33 years of gambling.

I had it 9 rounds to 3 PAC.

Impossible but true. I think back to the SD-PIT nfl game in 2009 when Troy Pol. scored a TD on the last play of a game for the steeler cover, a game the steelers totally dominated but were only up 1 pt. at the time and ref. scott green stepped in and disallowed the TD to give the undeserving chargers the cover and aprox. 100 million dollars world wide was effected. I was on the right side there and was robbed from that pos. fix, well it evened out tonight.

If i was those judges or 2 out of 3 of them anyway, i would be fearing for my life right now.

A College basketball game played around Christmas time 2011 between Xavier and Hawaii appeared to be fixed in Hawaii's favor...Not a "high profile" fix by any means, but a fix nonetheless.

Bradley didn't win a round, so it's the biggest fix ever. Bob Arum was so happy and they are already talking about a rematch. F#ck that I will NEVER watch antoher Top Rank promotion again til Bob is dead.

their are decisions all of the time like this especially in non- telivised fights in which the hometown guy is the up and comer and you have a journeyman coming in to fight him.  this garbage has been happening since the 1860's and will most likely never stop, unless their is a national commision put in place and I do think that eventually it will happen, hopefully sooner rather than later

also not the worst of the last 12 years,   that goes to emanuel augustus vs courtney burton 1,  which in reality just might be the worst ever.  it's bad but not even close to the worst since 2000,   but weather it's the worst of the century or the 28 worst it does not matter,   still a horrible thing either way.

It's the worst in a high profile championship fight in recent history. Imagine if the judges would have scored the Mayweather vs Cotto fight for Cotto, there would be just as much outrage as there is for this bad decision. The only thing fans can do is not keep paying for Top Rank PPV, atleast until Arum is out of the picture.
