    Not sure. But I think Garcia/Peterson should have been a draw and Garcia/Herrera should have gone to Herrera....

    Froch/Groves 1 . And not a robbery because they got the right verdict in the end, but how can anyone give Canelo the draw against Floyd??

    Sergey Kovalev - Andre Ward I

    Kovalev clearly won. All 3 judges scored round 10 for Ward - no way Kovalev lost that round.

    The first Wilder v Fury fight was a robbery. That fight was 10 rounds to Fury and 2 for Wilder which were the knock downs.

    I'm very reluctant to say a fight is robbery. In fact "Robbery" is the most over used term in boxing

    These were low volume fights. I don't think 10 clean punches where landed in any round. So it becomes a context of who is controlling the ring and ring generalship. Who looks like they're in control and that's opinion.

    These fights were not a robberies. Not even close.

    When Canelo fought Triple G again again "Robbery !!" Nope. It was a close fight.

    I often like to watch fights the next day with the commentary off then you get a more balanced viewpoint because your not as excited and swayed by the commentators

    But the fight's I'd say where robberies are

    There are too many people who call fights robberies that weren’t robberies. They are more bad decisions. I say a robbery is where it’s impossible to score the fight for a certain fighter but that fighter wins anyways.

    Canelo getting a draw against GGG in their first fight was not a robbery. It was just a bad decision. Scoring a draw for Canelo and Floyd is a robbery because it’s just impossible to claim Canelo won half the rounds.

    Yes, it was a robbery. The American judge's card was absurd, he was obviously dishonest.

    Again, not a robbery but a bad decision. I think that most people would agree that Fury won (me included), but a draw isn’t inconceivable.

    The first Wilder Fury fight was not a robbery, you don't give away two 10-8 rounds and expect to run away with it, especially when you are fighting in the champions back yard, I had Fury winning it but a robbery it was not

    I did think the first Kovalev Ward fight was harsh on Kov, again I had him winning but it wasn't as if he beat Ward all around the ring, it wasn't a robbery but I but I thought Kov won quite comfortably.

    Nope I disagree, the first fight was a robbery, GGG clearly won the first fight by a country mile, the second one not so much, I still had him winning it but it was by a matter of a point or two and whenever I score a fight that close I don't see how it can be classed as a robbery.

    People seem to forget that they can disagree with a decision without being outraged.
