Mayweather Judge

I Stand Behind My Decision

... The Fight Was a Draw

9/15/2013 1:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The boxing judge being ripped apart for scoring the Mayweather/Canelo fight as a draw tells TMZ she doesn't care what the critics say ... insisting she called the fight correctly.

Judge C.J. Ross tells us "I stand behind my decision" and isn't phased by all the ferocious criticism she's received from both experts and amateurs.

In case you missed it -- Floyd Mayweather scored a convincing victory over Saul "CaneloAlvarez last night ... but C.J. was the only judge to score them evenly.

After the fight, boxing expert Teddy Atlas went on ESPN and said Ross' score was a travesty and suggested she was paid off by gamblers.

Everyone in the arena was shocked by C.J.'s call ... including Floyd Mayweather who mouthed the words, "What the f***" when the announcer revealed he won on a majority decision and not unanimous.

But it's clear the judge doesn't care ... in her mind it was a draw.

This is exactly why the sport of boxing cannot be trusted. How was this woman ever allowed to judge. This is so wrong it only leads to some kind of criminal behavior. She should be investigate and her bank accounts.

She's been bought and paid for. In Vegas, you can bet on anything, for instance, you can actually bet on one of the judges scoring it as a draw.

That was always the problem whenever I watched a good fight. Even the Refs seemed to be biased. Refs David Pearl and Richard Steele stopped fights too early as tough someone had paid them off. That's why MMA is a lot better. Most MMA fights end with a knock-out or a very obvious victor.

In case you missed it one of the other judges only gave FM 2 more rounds so the difference n the fight must have been their view on those 2 rounds

Judges and referees are never held accountable for anything. The only good thing is if she's judging a fight again, the fighter is thinking "I've got to knock my opponent out."

Horrible, just horrible. This is the same judge who had Apollo Creed ahead on the scorecards against Ivan Drago.

Just because she is a woman does not mean she cannot judge boxing the focus should be on her skill or lack thereof to recognize which fighter delivered the most accurate and direct hits. There are men judges who are horrendous so instead of judging her based on being a female judge her on her inability to do the job in a manner that is conducive to the world of boxing.

Who the phuck cares about loser like this?
With headline and breaking news of no name losers like this, TMZ deserves to be hijacked by spammers.

Now, go out and dig up more dirt on Michael Jackson. Now, do you hear me? wait, Michael who? you ask? - well, if you don't know Michael who, maybe you should google him! - What, you tried? There is no Michael Jackson on the internet? Maybe you should try Michael Jacksin!
