that was the fight that really helped me understand/see the bias of hbo/lampley/merchant.
i watched that fight several times with the volume down. best i could do for dlh was 5 rounds. best for trinidad...8.
more than anything...i did not think that trinidad would get a fair shake in vegas.
It's been almost a year since I watched it, but I remember Oscar getting landing on Tito more than I thought he would, especially since his scary mannerism was so obvious. He didn't want to take any of Tito's shots, but instead of avoiding them with finesse, he looked real scary while doing so.
That bias was no joke, but hey, it's been like that as long as I can remember. The fact that Tito was awarded the decision wasn't at all surprising (after watching those championship rounds go to waste), but of course I initially felt that he wouldn't get the W in Vegas either. THAT is when I realized how much championship rounds meant to the judges!
