EARLIER this week WBA President Gilberto Mendoza moved to shed light on the process of judging fights and what happens when a controversial decision arises.

Poor judging has long been a bone of contention amongst fans, to the point that Mendoza held a press conference on Tuesday to address the issue.

After claiming that there have only been 10 “controversial fights” sanctioned by the WBA since 2012, Mendoza went on to explain what happens when a questionable scorecard is turned in.
