After watching Paul Williams (now an undeserving 40-2, 28 KO’s) get befuddled and bloodied over 12 grueling rounds against Cuban upstart Erislandy Lara (unjustly, no longer undefeated at 15-1), yet garner a gift decision, I couldn’t help but recall awful decisions that I had witnessed.
And without further adieu, they are: the five worst boxing decisions that I have ever witnessed in "real-time," during my short span here on this green orb that they call earth.
Jose Luis RamirezW SD Pernell Whitaker. Park Si-Hun W(3-2) Roy Jones, Jr.
- Pernell Whitaker D PTS
Julio Cesar Chavez.
- Lennox Lewis D PTS
Evander Holyfield. Courtney BurtonW SD Emmanuel Augustus.
The benefactors of these decisions have been
crossed out just so you’re clear.
The stench of Williams-Lara will wear off soon enough. And when it does, I may be forced to re-visit this list and considering adding it to this infamous quintet.
