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.

I think CJ Ross doesn't like Olympic style boxing where boxers scores on punches that doesn't hurt...

It's a non-story. It's not the first nor the last time it's happened that a judge disagrees with the others. That's why there are three judges.

Mayweather won the fight and tons of money. He shouldn't act like such a baby, maybe he has been hanging out with bieber too much.

I don't have a problem with her as long as she only judges Floyd Mayweather fights. Boxing has been crooked for the last 100 years.

She can't go publicly and say she was wrong, that's the end of her career. It's over anyways, but at least she goes out with dignity.
