Murray Rosado Scorecard Reaction From Fans On Twitter Says It All
The Murray Rosado scorecard was the story of the night in the evening’s boxing on Sky in the UK. This reaction summed it up.
Martin Murray of St.Helens won a majority decision over American Gabriel Rosado last night in the UK, in perhaps more of a cautious affair than was previously expected.
Ultimately, in most people’s opinion the right man got the decision. But in a close fight. The scorecards read 114-114, 119-109 and 116-112 in favor of Martin Murray.
Rosado nearly snapped afterwards when he heard the 119-109 scorecard and could you blame him? No one seemed to understand how a close fight like that could be scored so widely.
Both men continued to argue in their post-fight interview but the fan reaction online to the Murray Rosado scorecard perhaps said it best (including the event’s promoter):
Had Murray by 2.. 119-109 a disgrace! #MurrayRosado

Had Rosado winning by two from ringside. Got Murray by same score after watching on TV. That 119-109 card is absolutely revolting.

I had Murray-Rosado even 114-114. Had Rosado winning last two rds to even card. 119-109 is a joke of a card.

Abysmal fight. That wasn’t just “not a war”, it was almost entirely devoid of action. Topped off by a disgusting 119-109 card #MurrayRosado

Just seeing the Murray vs Rosado score card 119-109 what a fucking sham of a judge, should be fired. #Disgraceful

The ludicrous 119-109 scorecard was the big talking point from this pretty dull fight. Not convinced Murray “schooled him” #MurrayRosado
