Touching Their Gloves for the Last Round

Boxing is crooked. Evander Holyfield was robbed. You know something’s wrong when it takes more than a minute for judges to post their scores. The same thing happened when the judges robbed Pernell Whitaker when he beat Julio Cesar Chavez.

How about requiring judges to post their scores after every round, on a scoreboard above the ring? At the very least, do it for those fights in Las Vegas.

The Coca-Cola commercial explains it all. After Evander Holyfield treats his sparring partners to Cokes, the five mugs hoist their cans in tribute. And, sure enough, they’re all right-handed!
