Watch: Teddy Atlas Calls The Judges “Pompous Asses”
By Craig Miller-
(CBS) In the main event of last weekend’s Friday Night Fights at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, middleweight Donovan George (24-3-2, 21 KO’s) fought to a controversial 10 round draw against David Lopez (41-14-1, 23 KO’s). The official ringside scores were 96-94 for Lopez, 97-94 for George, and 95-95. The decision was an unpopular one as many people sitting ringside were left confused. George landed the bigger punches and controlled the majority of the rounds. He did enough to win the fight.
Teddy Atlas, who is the lead analyst for ESPN Friday Night Fights, spoke with Craig after the fight. The former boxer and trainer has been very vocal that boxing needs to clean up the sport and get rid of these incompetent judges. Watch Teddy rant and rave for a good 5 minutes as he tells Craig that the fans should form a petition and write to their congressman to finally put an end to the sports corruption.
