The Guys Are Disgusted With Olympic Boxing Judges [FBHW]
Free Beer, Hot Wings and Zane talked about the controversial boxing match between Japan’s Satoshi Shimizu and Azerbaijan’s Magomed Abdulhamidov, which led to Abdulhamidov winning via decision, despite being knocked down five times in the final round.
The guys agreed with one of the commentators, who said that because of stuff like this, the sport of boxing is now “considered a joke.”
We have to agree. Just watch the footage and you’ll see how blatantly corrupt the referee is, not giving the Azerbaijan boxer anything close to a count, even after being knocked down multiple times.
The guys then laughed at a clip of Teddy Atlas claiming that he’d “rather have an apartment than a bike,” while making a claim that Cuban boxers were awarded a bicycle if they won a medal. ”You got to love that Teddy Atlas is doing the commentary,” said Zane.
