Let's revisit what almost all boxing people consider an atrocious decision. The "draw" given in the first Lennox Lewis-Evander Holyfield fight. For the record, even in giving Holyfield the benefit of the doubt in close rounds, I had Lewis comfortably ahead at 116-112. Judge Stan Christodoulou was the closest to reality with a score for Lewis at 116-113. Larry O'Connell, normally an excellent judge and ref somehow had that fight 115-115 and judge Jean Williams turned in one of the most atrocious cards, favoring Holyfield at 115-113. That decision to this day remains the worst all-time decision ever for a major world championship fight. Even worse, Ms. Williams gave the 5th round to Holyfield, a round that saw Lewis on the verge of almost being KO'd. Ref. Arthur Mercante Jr. when interviewed said he would have given a standing 8 count in that round had the rules for it applied. But Association of Boxing Commission Rules under which the championship match was fought did not allow a standing 8 count. Ms. Williams also commented that "She could only score the blows she saw, and that Lewis' back was turned to her for most of the round." She claimed that her view was blocked, but on HBO's replay of the fight, their cameras show that there was nothing obstructing her view.
It's been a decade since that travesty. Post your scorecards and your reasoning behind them.
