  • Tell me how a fight could get scored by two judges, 98-92, 97-93 and by a third judge at 96-94 for the other guy. Something smells, and I ain’t walkin’ by no fish market. See the Correa/Sanchez fight scores.

  • Not sure why this is considered a big upset. Eros Correa was a solid amateur with wins over some really good guys.

    • Sanchez had a big year last year, knocked off two prospects with first round ko’s and got a rating, but I agree, Correa is a very good fighter. He surely grabs a ranking from someone now.
