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.

She might have a brain tumor.
She should go to the doctor and get a CAT scan.

LOL She must REALLY hate Mayweather. Even Canelo knows he lost - "I just couldn't catch him"

It's "fazed" not phased. How many times do we need to correct you? SpellCheck doesn't work when you use the wrong word spelled correctly.

This is why women should never make decision. Women make the worst decisions.

They need to investigate her. Either she's incompetent or takes bribery money.

Did the crowd Boo Mayweather when he was entering the ring last nite? I thought ppl loved this guy. I find him arrogant the way he flashes his money. It's so in your face! WTF Bieber? Just what the kid needed was a bigger ego! The judge was a pay off, more than the $8k she got to judge.

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.
