Tyson Cave’s Split-Decision Loss vs. Oscar Escandon Led to This Epic Teddy Atlas Tirade (Video)
During Thursday night’s interim WBA World Super Bantamweight title fight between Tyson Cave and Oscar Escandon, many had Cave winning the fight by a landslide (just look at the Facebook viewer scorecard in the image above). Among those who thought Cave dominated was ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas, who scored the fight 12 rounds to none in favor of Cave.
As for the refs, they must have been watching a completely different fight, as two of them scored the bout in favor of Escandon (including one judge who scored it 117-111 in favor of the victor). As for the judge who scored the fight in favor of Cave, he had the Canadian winning by a slim 115-113 margin.
This made a lot of people angry, as it should. Once again, Atlas was among them, leading to this epic Teddy Atlas Tirade:
Thank you, Teddy Atlas.
And f*ck you, boxing judges.
