Post subject: Justice for Jeff Fenech.Reply with quote

After 31 years, Fenech has been awarded his 4th boxing title.
The biggest robbery in boxing history has been rectified and Fenech can finally add the WBC super feather weight title to his trophy cabinet.

It has however, opened up somewhat of a can of worms...

Fenech clearly won the fight, I can't believe it was so long ago! I remember watching the fight as if it was yesterday.

I remember it so clearly and was so sickened by the corruption I went off boxing for a while. Don’t know the politics behind the terrible decision but it would have been great if this action happened 30 years ago so that the corrupt officials could have been named, shamed, canned and banned 🤬 however I get it that it’s better late than never 🙄 I hate corruption 😡

9.30 - Fenech comes ouitwith Tina Turner "simply the best" Very Happy

14.30 - National anthem

20.20 Fight starts.

Nelson takes the 1st 2 rounds and then Jeff beats him up for 10.

Split decision announced - 1:10:55, then watch the reactions, the comments, Don King, Jeffs reaction, Interview with Jeff, Don King.

The Main Event this day in Vegas was Tyson v Ruddock.

That's even worse watching it again, the commentators were astounded when the 'Split' decision was announced.
The commentator scored it 117 - 111. I had it 118 - 110.

Judges...
115 - 113
114 - 114
112 - 116 - that is just impossible.

In prize fighting, nothing is impossible if it matters enough financially to someone.
