Fury’s Promoter to Protest Decision
Thoughts after today’s Joseph Parker vs. Hughie Fury bout may have been similar to Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez. One judge scored Parker vs. Fury a 114-114 draw, but two saw it 118-110 in favor of Parker. While most in the boxing community agreed with Parker winning, some questioned the 118-110 score (which judge Adalaide Byrd gave Alvarez last week).
Still, Fury and his team thought he did enough to win the fight. Angered with the decision, Fury’s promoter, Mick Hennessy, is reportedly going to protest the decision with the WBO.
“This is corruption at its highest level in boxing,” Hennessy told BBC 5 Live. “I thought [Fury’s fighting] was an absolute masterclass, shades of Ali. Parker wasn’t even in the fight. One of the worst decisions I’ve ever seen.”
