It was Jerry Roth, not Duane Ford in Mayweather-Castillo I. The others were John Keene from England and Anek Hontongkam from Thailand. All had Mayweather well in front.

All sports have some form of corruption, it's just Boxing's is the only one that doesn't have a punishment system in place. The crooks get off free in Boxing, in other sports they'll be judged and sentenced accordingly


True Chi...very true, there's corruption everywhere. But I think boxing is corrupt on so many levels, in ways other sports are not and never were. It's in the fabric of the sport. An old timer once told me that though the "mob" (in the sense of organized crime bosses, etc.) has changed/evolved...boxing is still "mob" owned/run. And that mob has a strangle-hold on the sport and too much money invested to let go easily.

Really? Damn, you just dropped some knowledge on me...but I totally agree, boxing needs a makeover badly. It's the only sport where the criminals just breeze thru and if they are caught they get off with a slap on the wrist
