When it comes to boxing, controversy is never far behind. Whether is be a bad score by the judges or something done by the referee, it is almost inevitable fans will not be happen by a specific decision.
That was the case in 2013, When Carl Froch and George Groves fought inside the Phones4u Arena in Manchester. The back and forth affair was an exciting one, as Froch was able to rebound by a left hook right by Groves in the first round. While Groves was winning on the judges scorecards prior to the ninth (77-74, 76-75, 76-75), it was the ninth that was the deciding factor for a Froch win.
A flurry of punches by Froch in the ninth forced referee Howard Foster to end it. In a decision many felt was premature, Foster believed Groves was out of it. The boo’s poured down in Manchester. The rematch six months later would see Froch winning again, this time via knockout.
