    Default Most controversial decision of all-time?

    NOTE: I don't want you meatballs listing off robberies here. This thread is for controversial decisions - where opinion is essentially split on who won the fight.

    Does anything match Hagler/Leonard?

    Depends how you define it. Hagler - Leonard was a close fight which could have gone either way depending what style you preferred. Controversial to me means one guy CLEARLY won, where it's impossible to make a case for the other guy, yet still loses the decision.

    AgREED. I think our resident Canuck means 'contentious' rather than 'controversial'. And Hagler-Leonard is pretty damn near the top of that list for me.

    Ike vs. DLH

    I still strongly believe Ike won that fight. He certainly didn't do himself any favour getting thrashed in the last round like that... but i thought he built up a big lead and it's been a source of a lot of debate since it happened. not a robbery either way, close and good (imo) fight... really felt Ike won it
    “For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”

    Good call. Oscar has quite a few, actually. Quartey, Tito, Pea, Mosley II. Plenty of split opinions on all those fights.

    Nah, I mean controversy.

    Definition - dispute, argument, or debate, esp one concerning a matter about which there is strong disagreement and esp one carried on in public or in the press

    Okay then, and because you LOVE British fighter so much, I'll give Eubanks-Watson I and Eubanks-Benn II

    Alright I read it again and I see what you mean.

    What about Morales-Barrera??? I remember opinions being pretty divided on that one
