Golovkin vs. Alvarez judge announces she didn’t know which fighter was which

On Saturday night, the boxing world was stunned by a decision that didn’t seem to align with what they had just witnessed. Following a twelve-round war for the middleweight championship of the world between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, in which most people agreed that Golovkin got the better of, there was one key individual that disagreed.

One of the judges that was officially scoring the fight, did not see the fight going the way of Golovkin. Adalaide Byrd, a long time boxing and MMA judge, scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Alvarez. By comparison, judge Dave Moretti scored the fight 115-113 in favor and Golovkin, while Don Trella had the fight at 114-114- a draw.

The Nevada Athletic Commission announced on Sunday, that Byrd would not be assigned to any fights in the immediate future.

On Monday, Byrd announced the reason for her lopsided card. “I didn’t know which fighter was which.” she announced to the Daly Dose. “They are both the same size, same weight. It is all very confusing. I just picked a fighter and decided that he would be the winner.”

This isn’t the first time that Judge Byrd has had a confusing scorecard.

In 2008 Joe Calzaghe fought Bernard Hopkins for the light-heavyweight title, most had Calzaghe a clear winner. Byrd scored the fight 114-113 for Hopkins.

 

In 2016, promoters officially asked the Nevada Athletic Commission that she not serve as one of the judges for the Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Nicholas Walters fight. Their request was dismissed.

“People are going to say bad things about me. They are going to say I don’t know boxing.” Byrd stated. “That isn’t true at all. I have judged over 115 title fights. I know boxing. I just don’t know boxers all that well. Who won anyway?”

 

“This isn’t a circus.” Mayweather insists. Promises to ride unicycle and juggle during bout with McGregor

Citing numerous sports experts that have deemed his upcoming bout with mixed martial artist Connor McGregor a circus, boxer Floyd Mayweather went on the offensive Monday afternoon.

“This is a serious fight, and I am sick and tired of people saying that it is just a cash grab, with no real value.” Mayweather said.  “Connor McGregor is a champion fighter, with knockout power, and I have barely been training. I’ve been drinking and partying, and I have hardly even gone to the gym. So anything can happen.”

Tickets to the event that is being held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend are still available, and many believe that is why Mayweather is still doing his best to promote the fight. He has heard the talk that this fight is just a circus, and he disagrees.

“Yeah, I’ve heard that this fight is a circus.” Floyd retorted. “Just to prove how ridiculous that is, I have decided that I am going to ride a unicycle, and juggle oranges while fighting McGregor. It will not be easy, and there is a good chance that he knocks me out, but this is a legitimate fight. I want everyone to realize that this will be the crowning achievement for my fight record. This totally authentic championship fight will be an amazing finish to my amazing career.”

Daly Dose #103 Our U.S. Presidents as Athletes

This week on the Daly Dose Sports Podcast, Clint gives some thoughts on the recent Presidential election and why it was so entertaining.

We saw a number of upsets in college football over the weekend as Clemson, Michigan, Washington, Texas A&M, and Auburn all stumbled. But does it mean anything to the playoff committee?

UFC 205 took place in New York City and Connor McGregor gave the Irish something they have been waiting for.

There are a few NBA teams that have started quickly, but are they true contenders or just pretending?

And we have now seen 10 weeks in the NFL, and while we might think we are figuring the league out, if we look a little closer we might be surprised at what we find.

Finally, we count down the Top 5 most athletic US Presidents in history!
