    Default Refereeing and judging in the UK has become the worst in the world

    I'm ashamed of officiating in this country. Why any foreigner would want to come fight over here is beyond me. British referees stop fights too early and make some shocking calls. That Rocky Fielding-Bryan Vera fight is one of the worst calls I've ever seen. Rocky dragged Vera to his knees, the referee gors to help him up and Rocky hit Vera while he was on the floor. Then Vera stands up to protest and Rocky hits him again and knocks a defenseless Vera down hard. Instead of taking a point,Ian John Lewis starts counting. Then after letting it continue he stops Vera while he's still defending himself. It was bad in the Bellew fight too with the 2nd knockdown called when a punch didn't land. The BBBofC needs to sort their shit out because it's a fucking joke.

    I have to agree about refereeing in the UK. I've seen some awful stuff in recent years.

    Ian John Lewis cannot go 5 seconds without his pants falling down.

    Ian John-Lewis should be banned from officiating.

    He's awful.

    I was thinking about starting a thread like this actually, but I didn't want to stir up anything since I'm Canadian and our only claim is being polite and irrelevant. For real though, that was a horrendous showing and Ian john Lewis is either completely paid off or completely incompetent. Thank god most of the high level fighters don't have to go the U, would be a real shame if there were more legit fights with that kind of bullshit officiating.

    One thing I do admire about Ian John Lewis , he was a good to average area fighter , but when he got his licence to referee he made sure he became the very worst in the entire world. So credit to him for making himself stand out.
    Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .

    Shocking stoppage that wasn't it

    Thing is he started the count when Vera was pushed down, and the big punch was landed on the count of about 5 and the ref just carried on

    So Vera had about 3 seconds

    Should be made a no contest if you ask me

    The only thig that sorta saves Ian John Lewis here is that his bad officiating made absolutely 0 difference to the outcome of the fight. If anythin he saved Vera from any more damage.

    Because the fight from the first bell was only going one way.

    Now had that happened in a world title fight or even if this fight was in round 9 with the scores 76-76 then I'm sure there would be a lot more made about it.

    It bloody hurts to be punched in the floor. You can't even get a cup or protector for that.
