    I'm going to quickly List the 10 off the top of my head and then I'm going to watch the video to see how many I named. Here's what comes to mind off the top of my head:

    Oscar Dela Hoya Felix Trinidad

    George Foreman Shannon Briggs

    Earnie Shavers Muhammad Ali

    Ken Norton Muhammad Ali 3

    Also you're an actual casual if you think Manny was robbed against Bradley in their first fight

    Haven't watched the vid yet but a few I'd have:

    Hagler vs Antuofermo
    Santa Cruz vs Casamayor
    Zarata vs Pintor
    Ali vs Young

    There are so many.

    About half the examples in the video are good ones. Almost everything added by others were just close fights that could be scored differently.. Cloud vs campillo WAS a robbery, It’s hard to have Trinidad winning more rounds than Oscar of course, but a guy who literally refuses to fight in every championship round, being so sure that he had 4 in a row he could just completely piss away, is hard to feel sorry for. Whittaker vs Chavez and Ramirez were robberies. Chisora vs helinius was a robbery.

    Typically young guy can't even dig back into the 90s or 80's to find an example.

    De la Hoya - Trinidad
    De la Hoya - Mosley 2...at the VERY least Oscar won the rematch watch the fight, look at the stats, how it's any other way just shows you the judging is imperfect

    Not sure if it is a robbery, but I thought Whitaker beat Chavez. It wasn’t the most blatant robbery, but difficult for me to see that one being a draw.

    I thought Hagler beat Leonard pretty bad in that fight. Leonard has his moments, but they were not consistent, especially throughout the round itself.

    I feel that BHop won both fights vs Jermain Taylor and thought at worst he deserved a draw vs Calzaghe. His style had become “boring” by then, and he tended to try and shut the other guy’s offense down and do just enough to steal the round. That being said, I felt he beat both of those guys.

    Oscar vs Tito was pretty bad. I like Tito, and think the weight hurt him in that one, but Oscar won that night.

    I’m a huge Evander fan. I thought he lost the first fight to Lewis, but thought he won the rematch. He lost one and drew one with Ruiz and I thought he deserved both of those. He outright lost one to Ruiz as well.

    I thought Gatti deserved at least one of those fights vs Robinson.

    Jeff Fenech won the first fight vs Azumah Nelson.
