Hats off to 63-year-old James Kinney. We all know that there are plenty of judges who think it's okay to phone their cards in, but this is really taking the piss. Just watched this fight back (Jesse Hart v Joe Smith Jnr Saturday night). And how anyone with eyes in their head could've scored this fight in favour of Jesse Hart (95-94) is beyond me. Smith Jnr was dominant in this fight, had Hart hurt at least 4 times and knocked him down in the 7th. Hart was absolutely pathetic, with a very sloppy performance and some of the worst footwork I have ever seen at this level. I didn't give him one single round, yet this myopic old chancer from New Jersey saw fit to give the majority of rounds to Hart. For anyone who loves boxing (and betting on it) it's a depressing phenomenon repeats itself far too frequently.

Not enough space on the internet to list all the corruption in boxing.

But yeah, SO FAR, that is probably the worst, in high profile fights.

Of course, we almost never notice all the young fighters who's careers get destroyed because they don't have good management, and get continuously robbed on the way up.
Such is boxing.

Oh, and Smith-Hart also gave us the worst refereeing of the year, so far.
Harvey Dock, going for the prize !

Another demonstration by Dock illustrating why he has no business refereeing a fight. While Hart hugged Smith like a long lost lover from the very 1st round, Dock gave Smith several warnings for trying to punch his way out of the clinch.

As for Kinney, I don't know where they dug the prick up, but he should be reburied. Alive.

The ref saved Hart in that fight he was about to get stopped and then they checked the cut

Yep.

He also failed to call an obvious KD, late in the fight, when Smith punched Hart clear across the ring & into the ropes, with Hart literally bouncing off of them.
