pittbox Posted September 27, 2018 Share Posted September 27, 2018 It's often said that when the judges get the decision wrong, nothing can be done except of the rematch. This is not true, though. I'm aware of few cases when the verdict was overturned! 2015-08-29 in Hongkong - Kerry Hope v Poomarase Yoohanngoh Original decision : split decision draw (113-115, 114-114, 117-111). After the complaint from the camp of the British fighter WBC got two different judges to score this fight instead of those who had it against Hope. The official result is now an unanimous decision with three judges scoring it 117-111 for Hope. 2017-04-09 in Nalchik, Russia - Viskhan Murzabekov v Aram Amirkhanyan Original decision: split decision win for Murzabekov. Upon the review changed to unanimous win for Amirkhanyan. 2018-07-27 in Flemington, Australia - Sam Soliman v Tej Pratap Singh Original decision: majority decision win for Soliman (98-90,96-92,94-94). Referee reportedly ignored Soliman's fouls as well as two proper knockdowns caused by Singh. Upon the review changed to No Contest. Are you aware of any other cases of the judges' decision being overturned? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
