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.

There was betting on whether the decision would be unanimous or not. I think the woman shouldn't be allowed to judge a fight again.

She shows her arrogance. They should bury her in the desert. This cow should never be allowed to judge any sport again.

Good for her!! Mayweather is a clown and finally had someone stand up to him and make him fight for his $$ instead of letting him run around the ring like a punk a$$ biatch!! Canelo is young, but gave him a good fight!! All I have to say is watch out Mayweather next time you won't be so lucky!!

When you run the most of the time, a good judge will discount your performance. Canelo was the aggressor and should have been up on the cards more.

And we stand by our opinion Ms. Ross that your decision was whack. Not even Canelo questioned the decision and he was the one getting his ass whipped. If you think that was a draw, time to hang em up girlie.
