    Sorry for you, but i’ve Three points for Toney, exactly as the two judges who gave the match to Toney. So for me really not the worst decision on film. What to say of Ramirez-Whitaker I or Bradley-Pacquiao ?

    A fight at the time , that painfully illustrated most everything that is wrong in professional Boxing and maybe sometimes in “Life” . The classic case of the unaccepted , “unattached” humble professional verses the “superstar” anointed one. “... you can have a rematch!!!?” _ “... no thanks”

    I’m a huge Toney fan, but this robbery was devastatingly heartbreaking to watch.
    Major kudos to Tiberi for handling it like a true gentleman.
    (Toney admitted to losing this 17 years later in ‘09.)

    Dave is a good friend. A true man of God. This was just plain awful

    The entire Tiberi family is a well known entity in the Southeast Pennsylvania area. Having said that, who would have listened except other Philly people prior to the fight?

    Yes, this is arguably the worst decision on film.

  12. The thresher 02:07pm, 02/10/2013

    Worse decision of all time
