On Saturday night Floyd Mayweather was dominant in his win over Saul Alvarez, yet the fight was ruled a majority decision after a judge ruled it a tie, 114-114 (the other two judges scored the fight 116-112 and 117-111.
That judge who apparently scored the fight while sitting in a cold, dark room: C.J. Ross, who is based out of Las Vegas.
And it’s not the first time that she’s been a part of a controversial decision.
She was the judge of the Manny Pacquiao/Timothy Bradley welterweight title fight in June 2012 — a fight that most ringside observers thought Packquiao won. Ford was one of the two judges who scored the fight 115-113 in favor of Bradley, which gave him a controversial split decision.
The website boxrec.com has a list of what’s described as Ross’s “notable” scores.
This latest “notable” score should insure that she never judges another fight again.
