We ask a panel of experts what they thought of the Danny Jacobs vs John Ryder decision on Saturday

Frankie Gavin
Fought Brook

I’m a big fan of John Ryder’s but he never won that fight. Danny Jacobs looked like was cruising. He did take his foot off the gas but still won in my opinion.

Barry Jones
Former WBO belt-holder

I had Jacobs winning by three points. But I also think the uproar immediately after the fight was uncalled for. I had two rounds I could have easily given to Ryder, but saying all that, I still had Jacobs as the winner.

Mickey Helliet
Manager & promoter

I would have leant to Jacobs for the decision. Marcus McDonnell was closer to my view. They both had their moments. Maybe Jacobs should have forced the fight more intensely being the away fighter? I always tell fighters not to think they will win decisions by pinching rounds away from home.

Chris McKenna
Sports reporter

I watched the fight back a day later having known the result and about the controversy over the scoring. I had it to Daniel Jacobs by two rounds. It was a poor decision in my view.
