After what the irish judge did for them in the heavyweight final last night you'd of thought they'd let em win that one!

I'm in shock, that's 5 dodge results and i've only watched less than half the bouts. Conlan should have gone over and snotted the lot of em..

Should have chinned that twot as well...

Conlan lost the last round 3-0. No redemption for that score. Plain and simple corruption..

Conlan totally out boxed the Russian in the first round with great footwork and combinations,when they knew that wasn't passing muster he went into the trenches with him and out fought and out battled him for the 2nd and 3rd round which he clearly won.

The Russian was a tough fighter who kept trying but is severely limited in his boxing skills and was slapping a lot when he got tired,only one boxer in the ring there,thought Conlan was outstanding.

Some of the judges are going to be sent home after a review found their performance to be "not at the level expected". That's all well and good, but it won't give the cheated fighters a chance to win the medals they should have had in the first place.

Imo, they must have changed the rules of boxing completely!
The refs are weak and ridiculous ( "head up, head up!"; "no holding, no holding").

Conlan, Levit, and a couple of Americans were winners in my eyes, but got eliminated.

Besides the rule changes there just must be corruption - as with the ticketing!
Sport seems pretty bad in general when it comes to the way 'tis organised by non-players who probably make a fortune.
