TRAINER ROBERT GARCIA WANTS JUDGE CJ ROSS INVESTIGATED


PhilBoxing.com



Ross.
2012 “Trainer of the Year” Robert Garcia wants judge CJ Ross investigated for her inexplicable 114-114 scorecard in the Floyd Mayweather Jr- Saul “Canelo” Alvarez title fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last Saturday.

Garcia told the Manila Standard that he personally believes Mayweather “won every single round but some people said Canelo may have won one or two rounds at the most” which is a view shared by Manny Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz who recalled that Ross was the same female judge who raised a howl of protest around the world after she scored the Timothy Bradley-Pacquiao fight for Bradley.

With reports indicating that a number of fight fans had bet on a unanimous decision win by Mayweather and bookmakers made a small killing because of the majority decision caused by Ross’ scorecard, there are growing demands for an investigation.

Garcia told us “they got to do something about it. They need to investigate.”

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum had also demanded an investigation after the Pacquiao loss to Bradley but Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer not only stood by Ross but has since defended her ridiculous scorecard in the Mayweather-Alvarez fight incurring the ire of some fight fans and media who want Kizer himself investigated.

The Las Vegas Review Journal has quoted NSAC chairman Bill Brady as saying he is willing to “accept the blame” for not fighting Ross’ nomination by Kizer.

Brady added he “let the public down” after Ross, only a year removed from joining judge Duane Ford in giving hobbled Timothy Bradley a victory by split-decision over Pacquiao.

Brady told the Las Vegas Review Journal “I can guarantee there will be some changes. We have to protect the fighters, the viewing public and the betting public. We’re going to look at our vetting process. It needs to be more thorough. We have to get this right.”

Respected Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Dwyre said “Fans swarmed to bet on the “draw” proposition, dropping the odds from 30 to 1 to 8 to 1 on the theory that judges would alter the outcome to ensure a highly profitable rematch between the then-unbeaten fighters.”

Ross defended her scoring and said she had no problems with it although Kizer took a dig at Arum and Pacquiao supporters before Saturday’s title fight claiming that complaints about Ross’ work in the Pacquiao fight from reporters was coming from Pacquiao loyalists and cracked that if those writers didn’t object they feared they wouldn’t be credentialed to the next fight promoted by Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum.

Pugmire said Cynthia Ross “not only has botched fights with Mayweather and Pacquiao, she has been alone in other fights, which a review of the record-keeping website boxrec.com shows.”
He listed some instances:

Nov. 12, 2011: Scores Juan Carlos Burgos-Luis Cruz, 95-95, when Ford has it 98-92 and Ricardo Ocasio scores it 97-93 for Burgos.
August 13, 2011: Scores Abner Mares-Joseph Agbeko, 113-113, when Adalaide Byrd and Oren Shellenberger have it 115-111 each for Mares.

Feb. 7, 2008: Has Kendall Holt-Ben Tackie a 95-95 draw when Paul Smith and Richard Houck score it 98-92 for Holt.

She also scored two other one-sided bouts in 2011 draws.
