Mayweather Judge

I Stand Behind My Decision

... The Fight Was a Draw

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 why I dont buy boxing ppv's. So sport is close to dead because of this nonsense. Too many crooks are in deep in the sport. If I want to pay for a ppv that is pre-determined, then I'll buy one from wwe.

Why do fools keep buying this garbage. He has 41 million to waste away on hoes and Bentleys. Until he stops eluding Pacquio and fights Pacquio him, he is nothing.

She should never judge any major fight again. It is clear she is corrupt, incompetent or both.

Corrupt old nasty b$@#^ who was paid off by the crooket book makers in vegas. Alot of people place money on a "Unanimous Decision" in Floyds favor as it was rightfully so. Because of her "tied" card it made it a "Split Decisions" so alot of people lost alot of money in Vegas last nite.

Just because her old azz scored the fight when Adam found out Eve got them kicked out of Eden, does not mean she knows boxing.

As noted earlier here, the word is "fazed", not "phased". Honestly, if you're going to write for a living, you should know what words mean.
A person can't be 'phased'....unless they're in a fight with Capt. Kirk, or something!
