  • Bullshit Roman should have had his hand raised. The problem is the usual crooked politics of boxing.

    • Yeah, I thought he won as well although this was hardly one of the worst decisions I’ve seen. The announcing crew spent way too much time talking about Akhmadaliev rather than paying attention to the punches that were actually landing. They kept giving Akhmadaliev credit for left hands landing that were hitting nothing but glove.

      Akhmadaliev is reasonably skilled, but makes a ton of mistakes. When he fights someone with a little more pop than Roman we won’t have to worry about the scoring.
