In no particular order, but here is my list.
1.) Rameriz-Whitaker I: Far worse than Chavez-Whitaker.
2.) Toney-Tiberi: Example of why journeymen can't get a break.
3.) Burton-Augustus: Probably the biggest robbery for a little cable fight you will ever see.
4.) Foreman-Schultz: Schultz won 8 rounds clearly, but somehow lost the majority decision.
5. Carr-Bramble: OMG, this was worse than Burton-Augustus! Car was dropped twice in round 1, Bramble was hurt throughout the fight. Carr actually hurt Bramble badly I think it was in round 5. The only rounds that you could POSSIBLY give to Carr were round 2 and obviously round 5. Guess who got the decision in Carr's hometown. One local judge gave it to Bramble like 99-90. Somehow, the others had it 97-93 for Carr! And I think like 95-94 for Carr! One writer wrote, "This verdict was so bad, it's lucky that the two judges who voted for Carr, don't wind up on wanted posters."
6.) Joel Cassamayor-Santa-Cruz: Santa Cruz won all but maybe two or three rounds, and some home Cassmayor got a split decision with all three judges having the fight very close. As a bonus, here is a write-up about that fight:http://www.usatoday.com/sports/boxing/2007...549998438_x.htm
7.) Joel-Cassamayor-Kid Diamond: I seem to recall this was pretty bad too. I think Cassmayor's corner shockingly thought he won, and HBO had it 116-111 for Kid Diamond, but the fight was ruled a draw. Memory is hazy on this fight.
8.) Nelson-Fenech I: Nelson gets the shit beaten out of him in an easy 117-111 to a 116-112 type of verdict for Fenech. Shockingly, the judges had it a draw. One judge Miguel Donate from Puerto Rico had it 116-112 for Azumah!!!! Interestingly, Nelson beat the crap out of Fenech in the rematch, where Jeff had maybe only won two rounds or so, and Fenech was knocked down several times. In another shocker, two judges had the fight even at the stoppage. The third judge, the highly respected Harry Gibbs of England had Nelson comfortably ahead as did the rest of the world. The rematch was at Princess Park Stadium in Fenech's native Australia. Before the fight there were rumors that Jeff and/or his people had made threats to the judges if they did not score the rematch fairly.
9.) Holyfield-Lewis I: Any easy 116-112 victory for Lewis on my card, is ruled a draw. Jean Williams, 115-113 Holyfield card and her giving the 5th round to Holyfield in which Lewis came close to knocking him out in that round, one of the worst judging injustices in the history of boxing, if not the worst!
10: Ottke-Reid: A close fight, but made close by the referee Roger Tillerman doing anything and everything to favor Ottke in the fight. These instances were about as close to corruption as you could get Point deductions against Robin for nothing, and not calling an obvious knockdown scored by Reid, gave the verdict to Ottke. Ottke was the benefactor of many close Split Decisions in Germany, that several people believed should have gone the other way.
Some bad decisions. Notice the distinction that in examples 3, 5, and 10. Home venues were involved with these controversial verdicts.
PS. Had to do 10. Could not think of only 5!
