According To One Judge, The Mayweather-Alvarez Fight Was A Draw
I didn’t see it, but according to everyone who did, Floyd Mayweather Jr., pretty much played Moe Howard to Canelo Alvarez’s Curly on Saturday night. Mayweather won in a majority decision … wait, what?
Well, not everyone saw it as a dominating Mayweather victory. One judge, C.J. Ross, called it a draw. Controversy ensued.
That’s exactly what happened as Judge C.J. Ross scored the fight 114-114.
This isn’t the first time that Ross has been the center of controversy. When Manny Pacquiao fought Timothy Bradley, she scored the bout 115-113 for Bradley, which essentially handed “Pac Man” an incredulous loss.
There is no word yet from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) if there will be an investigation, but from all that were watching the bout, it was a criminal scorecard.
Here are the cards. Ross’s is on the far right.
As you can see, she has Alvarez winning four of the last five rounds — including a 10-8 win for Alvarez in the eighth, when the other two judges had Mayweather winning 10-9.
The thing about scoring is that you can run the bout back in super hi-def slo-mo, and everyone in the world can score it — which I’m sure would be everyone in the world giving it to Mayweather, and a lone dingbat calling it a tie.
