That said...what if she had scored it 115-114 Alvarez? It's still a draw...

I'm hearing Stephen A. Smith screaming about the 118-110 decision...so what?

Alvarez won on her card.

GGG won another judge's card.

The third judge had it 114-114.

It's a draw...no matter if the chick who had Alvarez winning 118-110 or 115-114...it doesn't make a difference.

One bad score ruins a good fight. I would have been ok with a draw although i thought ggg won. But 118-110 lmao... Boxing is fucking awful. Shit like this just kills the sport more.

I really wasn't rooting either, I certainly will be rooting for GGG if there were to be a sequel. But I promise I will not buy that fight. No chance in hell.

Pretty sure I'm the biggest fight fan on this board and I don't have a problem shelling out $50-$60 for a fight.

I will not be buying that second fight, no matter how good I think it is. Fuck them.

I still remember when all the big fights were on TV for free.. Always afraid the main fight is done in two rounds or the under card is the best draw to put that kind of money on a match. Or Dela Hoya fights which end up being boring..

I have a ton of fights from those days on my computer in pretty decent quality. The fights that included Hearns/Leonard/Hagler/Duran will always be my favorites.
