    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.

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

    Ian John Lewis made that bad stoppage in the Maccarinelli v McKenzie bout too. He's got previous in this case. I don't think that we can tar all the referees with the same brush. I honestly don't believe we're as bad as Germany, and the US isn't fantastic.

    Referees have a tough job across the world, and while I can understand guys being annoyed when they get stopped, do we want referees that let the beating go on too long?

    Early stoppages are becoming a bit of an often occurrence in the UK now. Ruining a lot of fights. Last night was the same although Vera would have probably have been stopped anyway.

    I think the problem last night was that if Lewis stepped in and made the correct call and took a point from Rocky, it could have actually lead to Vera looking for a way out of the fight like Dirrell did against Abraham. And that might have caused a problem in Liverpool. 😂

    Bit harsh to tar the entire UK because IJL does his usual incompetent job. On the whole Brit refs are a bit quick to stop fights. I think that's a fair criticism.

    America is the worst in the world because of Laurence Cole.

    They are very biased to the home fighters. Joshua should have bene DQd against Johnson in my view. Would have been hilarious if he did too, could you imagine the look on Hearns face

    Same in the US but added to that is the bias displayed by broadcaster fighters or promoters. Tony Weeks is a great ref most of the time but he bludgeoned the Porter/Broner fight. He did so because Haymon handed him a script. Ftr the US like the UK also has some of the best refs in the business but most people dont know their name. Same goes for trainers.


    Btw did anyone happen to catch the Ruenroeng/ Casimero fight Saturday? Its up on youtube already. Go have a boo. The refs name is Larry Dogget and that was one pile of dogshit for a ref job.

    Funny, that's the way I feel about the refereeing and judging in the U.S.
