After all the horrors of 2020, strangely comforting to know what Terry O'Connor's judging is still the worst thing on earth.

Absolute joke, the fat disgrace. Hardly watched a fight for ages & even though I enjoyed Vasquez's performance, that decision is a reminder of why boxing ca be such a frustrating sport to be a fan of

Reading boxing fans' comments on Eddie's tweet says it all. I think Eddie Hearn very well knows that this scorecard was too corrupt for everyone who think that boxing should be something more than just business. Ritson won maybe 1-2 rounds? It is a bit weird Eddie doesn't understand that such decisions must hurt Matchroom's branding.

Worst is, Ritson's corner seemed to know all the way that he would win as long as he just landed something each round. I wonder if the betting companies might investigate this fight? There must be many who bet on Vazquez who feel robbed now.

I am searching for anyone anywhere who scored it to Ritson. Have not found anyone yet.

I think Eddie understands this result might hurt his Matchroom brand too... thus his two tweets. Something fishy has happened here, but I don't think Hearn/Matchroom is to be blamed. Ritson's corner seemed to be well informed though, given the weird instructions between rounds. Hopefully the judge will be investigated, and the scoring redone by the British boxing board of control

I am surprised that people are surprised at the Score Cards.

Eddie and his brown paper bag payments are legendary. Worst kept secret since Evander Holyfields juicing.

Looks like Terry O Connor went of script and made the Scorecard wider then it was supposed to be.

Eddie Hearn knows how to play the game best scam artist in the business. Now he is gonna take the highground put his hands-up and say it was a bad score card. And that these scorecards are bad for boxing.

Rinse and repeat on the future Matchroom shows.

Maybe you are right. Things went off script, and to make things fair I think that judge might be sacrificed as a scapegoat (fined, perhaps not allowed to score professional matches anymore), and perhaps an L has to be added to Ritson's card too... too many people may have lost money on this match. Hopefully for Eddie no Godfather decided to whitewash money betting on Vazquez winning on points, going into round 12.

Never seen a British Judge or referee called out or fined for their misconduct. By the British Boxing Board in 35 plus years of following the sport. This will be brushed under the carpet. As usual and he will be back judging in several months time. If aby Godfathers were betting they would have been in on the fix and betted heavily for Ritson in the eleventh round.
