You can even tell at the end of the fight that BJ knows he lost
BJ knew he was gassed. As I said, I think you might have been on the judging panel that night, because even Frankie's trainer had BJ winning 2 rounds.

BJ won rounds 1,2,3 clearly. 4 was close, 5 Frankie won clearly. Very surprised by the decision, bad call but 50-45 was just a travesty.

I agree totally. Penn got robbed. It was close but I really can't see how Edgar won. His rapid movements back and forth looked impressive and all but Penn landed harder punches and did more damage.

Anyone have fightmetrics on this fight?

Look in the official thread. It's posted and quoted several times.

Just looked at, they had it similar to what most people had it..I gave the 4th to Frankie on aggression though since I don't usually give 10-10 rounds.

2nd round was pretty one-sided. IIRC that was the round that BJ landed a flurry of uppercuts after Frankie shot.

Looking at this even further substantiates my thoughts that this fight was fixed, and that this judge was either paid off or has connections to Frankie.

No way someone can be this bad at scoring. This is Eugenia Williams-esque.

I had it 50-42 Edgar so I can see where he's coming from.

Is it just me or is this guy batshit crazy?

Watch out Gotham city, it's batshit. Even Stevie Wonder could see Edgar never won the first round, him and Cecil peoples got to go.

I haven't even watched the fight. But just reading his intro into his nonexistant explanation of what he judged the fight on was like watching an episode of the twilight zone. i think this verifies, that even more than the refs, the judges need to be slected more carefully by the athletic commission. Anyone know the athletic commissions guidelines for selecting refs? Also wondering if maybe judges should have to present a short summary of their reason for judging the fight the way they did after the conslusion of the results? Only way of tracking inconsistent reasoning and filtering those people out.
