After both the Lomachenko-Lopez and Ritson-Vazquez fights were tainted by some controversial scorecards, Matt Christie and Alex Steedman ask that age-old question: What's up with boxing judges?

FOUR days after both the Lomachenko-Lopez and Ritson-Vazquez fights were tainted by some controversial scorecards, Matt Christie and Alex Steedman ask that age-old question: What’s up with boxing judges?

Points they consider:
– Room for subjectivity?
– The issue of point of view
– How to score a fight
– Should more be done from governing bodies in regard to bad performance?
– Is the Board right to silence their officials?

Also up for discussion, in no particular order, is: Further analysis of Loma-Lopez and their respective futures; Joshua-Pulev; the WBC and their many champions; Danny Williams’ victory over Mark Potter; Crawford-Brook.
