    Default Which draw was the biggest robbery?

    The Hopkins Pascal fight is definitely this week's big talking point. Virtually everybody thinks Hopkins won the fight. How does it compare to other drawn robberies?

    Make your choice below.

    Whitaker vs Chavez, not only for the lineal WW title but for the mythical title of p4p the best. I had Whitaker winning 10 out of 12 rounds.

    On another note the fight was at a catchweight of 145 pounds. But since it's not Pacquiao, it's okay for others to fight at catchweights.

    Funeka/Guzman, I was well pissed off at the time. Funeka put his all into that.

    Whitaker-Chavez for me, I re-watched it a few weeks ago and scored it 118-110 Whitaker, and I don't even think many of the rounds were particularly close

    I'm quite surprised I don't see Pacquiao-Marquez 1 on the poll. Maybe the hobbit forgot to add it.

    That's another fight in boxing history that could have either way. But no way in hell that was robbery.

    It's really tough to say but I feel it was worse than Lewis Holyfield 1. As you know, I had a feeling at about round 6 it would be draw. This was more because I was watching Hopkins win the fight so easily that the best the judges could do for Pascal was give a draw. I remember a lot of rounds in the Lewis Holyfield fight that could be scored either way based on interpretation. In this fight, almost every round bar 10 and 12 was very easy to score and those two were a debate between 10-10 or 10-9 to Hopkins. As a result I scored it 112-114 Hopkins

    Funeka vs Guzman!

    Most recent because that still pisses me off.

    Chavez vs Whitaker has got to be all time though.

    Lewis-Holyfield all the way for me. Even if I gave all the close rounds to Evander I would still have had Lewis winning 8-4. My score card was 10-2 for Lewis.

    I don't think Taylor-Wright was any where near being a robbery. As when anybody fight Winky they all out work him and he takes lots of punches just standing there with his gloves over his face. This also gives him a chance to complain after the fight that nothing landed. I call BS. I had it a draw all the way.

    I think it easily has to be Whittaker Chavez all time, it was such a big fight for boxing and you could make a case that Chavez didn't win a single round.

    Draws are horrid. You have the type like Chavez vs Whitaker that are contrasting styles and leave it to interpretation for judges, to respect the smooth boxing and look past just coming forward as being enough.

    Then you have a Funeka vs Guzman or a Hopkins vs Pascal that turn really physical as they progress. You can see damage being done, mental and physical on one fighter. One seems to be just 'lasting' out an attack and you just see momentum shifting big time. Fenech vs Nelson 1 ?

    You always hear some say "Well at least they didn't call it a loss for him" when speaking of draws. Almost like its a consolation prize but really in an odd way I say F that. Its almost insult to injury to be 'given' a draw when you, fans feel same guy won it. I mean if your going to screw him,just call it what it was and make it more glaring and obvious. Like trying to have it both ways. Put that 'L' on him so he can identify it as full on crap, fans and fighter know thats what it is in the first place. A draw is a win for Pascal last night. Let him see that 'w' on record and know its bullshit. Twisted ,I know. Hopkins lost...time, opportunity, history. There are legit draws...this was not one!

    funeka/guzman guzman gets busted up dominated and yet somehow he got a draw. The one that's even more bizarre is Martinez-Cintron, Cintron gets kod but bitches it was a phantom headbutt so gets to continue without losing a point or anything, and then supposedly fought martinez to a draw...it's the kind of shit that makes you hate boxing and you feel the urge to sling something at the the tv.
