We have seen the fight of the ‘Filipino FlashNonito Donaire and ‘PapitoWilfredo Vazquez Jr. The Alamodome in San Antonio Texas, United States was filled with action-packed fight of Donaire VS Vazquez Jr. which lead to a Split Decision where it should be Unanimous Decision, as can be seen in the fight.

Donaire VS Vazquez Jr Split Decision

Despite the knockdown plus the hits and aggressiveness shown by Donaire, one judge gave a 115-112 against Donaire. Was that fair? Never did Vazquez Jr have a chance to get the advantage. Donaire may have injured one of his hands during the battle, but that was no case. It should still be Win by Unanimous Decision, not Split!

This is a controversy. If we can verify the judge’s nationality or something related to that, we can hunch that there’s some cooking to it. There’s a big difference between Split and Unanimous. By Split, there’s even a luck to it why the boxer has won, but in Unanimous, the match is completely in NO MATCH state, which is what Donaire VS Vazquez Jr. really is. I can say Narvaez was way more challenging compared to Vazquez Jr.

    It was obviously unanimous! Decisions like this does nothing good for boxing. What fight was that judge watching?

    Officials should investigate that one judge. And they should change the decision from Split to Unanimous. They destroying the boxing with this kind of controversial decision. Imagine, crap! 115- 112 for Vasquez ???? WTF is that???. That was a very strange score and obviously cheating.
