The Roy Jones Controversy

| | Comments () | digg_icon.png Digg It!


Was talking with Steve-O tonight about Olympic controversies. The Roy Jones fight is, in my mind, the biggest scam of them all, much worse than even the '72 basketball game between the US and USSR (at least that game was close). I remember this fight, because it was the first time that I ever saw a sporting event that was unquestionably fixed. 20 years later and I am still pissed about it. Here is the fight in it's entirety. Jones landed 86 punches to Park's 32, and it later came out that the judges had been wined and dined by Korean officials, and the three judges were all suspended. But still they haven't given Jones his gold medal. In case you were curious, while Jones became one of the greatest boxers of the last 30 years, Park si-Hun finished out his pro career 0-9, being knocked out 6 times. Any other Olympic controversies you remember?
