Who anyone wanted to win should be irrelevant. And 'close' is just a way of excusing poor or corrupt judging.Pennywise wrote:Always....unless he's fighting Mayweather you mean?Neville Bartos wrote:

ODLH has apparently written an open letter to fans moaning about the reaction to the decision. I guess he's upset the fans can't be as easily manipulated as the judges.
I get people don't like Alvarez mate, I wanted a GGG win, but this screaming about the decision is ridiculous. I've seen some absolute shockers in Vegas, the Lewis example was a good one, more recently Bradley SD'ing the Pac-man; they were genuine robberies, this just wasn't.
7/8 of those rounds could have gone either way, so how anyone can complain that the verdict was a "robbery" when the decision was literally a point either way is beyond me.
Those close rounds didn't ALWAYS go to Alvarez in this fight either....look at the scorecards, it was fucking close, Golovkin got a good number of them, just not enough. One in fact.
Pointing out the Alvarez biased judging isn't screaming.
We keep seeing Alvarez getting questionable scorecards. One judge had him drawing with Mayweather. Winning 4 of the last 5 rounds. Insane stuff. Go and rewatch that fight and tell me about close rounds that could've gone either way.
That this fight was closer than the first with GGG makes giving the decision to Alvarez more palatable for some. Not me. A close fight was ALWAYS going Alvarez's way. Always.
GGG won comfortably first time, he was hard done by on one scorecard and utterly robbed on another.
If he'd won the first and Alvarez had edged this one there might have been some mild grumbling, but that first fight set the tone.
I think it was the complete predictability of Alvarez winning a decision in a fight most had GGG edging. It's like always being the wrong end of close penalty decisions. In isolation you might write it off as bad luck, but after the sixth or seventh on the spin you start to question the process.
