    Interesting read but while kim's death was extremely sad, as is any death in the ring I don't think it should be on the list as the rest deal with shameful and shady dealings.

    Kostya Tszyu-Ricky Hatton. The way Hatton and Dave Parris double-teamed Tszyu that night was disgusting to watch. Parris let Hatton do everything he wanted. The worst part was when Parris ignored a legit knock down scored by Tszyu and than allows Hatton to wind up and purposely hit Tszyu in the balls. Didn't even issue a warning. One of the most corrupt jobs of referring I ever seen. And the Hatton groupies (what's left of them) defend it.

    Good read not sure about #1 though. But I think I would add to that list with the day the alphabet titles were formed...a sad time for boxing IMO.

    If you are going to start including referee hack jobs on such a list then Saddo better increase the character count. The Chavez/Taylor fight does not equal Steele being corrupt. Do people actually believe that he was watching the time clock? Many worse calls have been made and fights reffed over the course of history. Same with Kim's death. No offense or lack of respect but what makes his death worse then say Baroudi being killed by Charles or Doyle by Robinson?

    Here is a few other hack jobs if you want to talk corruption.

    Cortez in Soto/Lorenzo
    Tilleman in Reid/Ottke
    Neumann in Abraham/Miranda 1
    Mora in Mares/Agbeko 1. Joseph probably needed a junk transplant after that.
    Santore in Martinez/Cintron
    Cole in Jmm/Jaca "You can quit if you want Juan, your ahead on the cards."

    Big difference between being corrupt and being incompetent. Those are pretty much cases of the refs being incompetent. It's no surprise to see the names Cortez, Mora and Neumann included. Tilleman gets a bad rap for Ottke-Reid. He didn't do a bad a job as fools claim. And Cole clearly gets unfairly criticized for the Marquez-Jaca fight. It's not his job to say it but really all Cole did was tell Marquez what he and everybody with a pair of eyeballs already knew. That he was winning. Big fucking deal. None of those refs conspired with the fighter like Parris did with Hatton

    The early death of Salvador Sanchez was a huge blow for boxing and to think what career he would've had in the 80's? Rematches with Nelson, potential match up with Chavez and Whitaker? A truly shocking moment.

    The life of Carlos Monzon, a great fighter, but what a tumultuous personal life!

    Ali V Holmes was terrible to watch (shouldn't have happened)

    Roy Jones later years (losing in 1 round to an ordinary fighter like Danny Green was sad)

    Whitaker draw with Chavez is still my number one worst decision of all time.

    I'm a writer for listverse lol.

    Very good site.

    However I have submitted 2 lists on boxing that they refuse to publish.

    They do not publish much sport now.

    A very weird list.

    As mentioned, deaths should be off it, as usually each death is as tragic as the next.

    No Gonzalez/CoggiI or Rivers/Walgast?

    They pick on King's corruption, but do not list Arum et al, who have all in their time, been just as corrupt.

    The IBF is singled out, but the WBC also went bust due to corruption.

    The MSG riot was nasty, but not a patch on what used to happen regularly in the LA Olympic Auditorium, or the hatred that started the riot at Hagler/Minter.

    It seems the list is a bit cliché, with little thought put into it.

    Not really sure what you're talking about here. That punch was right on the beltline and should have been scored as a legit knockdown.

    Not sure how you mistake Mcline-Mollo for Bowe-Golota?
