Conlon won the first round, brilliant sparring, feinting, on the back foot, gets in the best smacks.
Conlon wins the second round, completely different style, brawling, hooking, battering the Russian.
Conlon shades the third round, by now the Russian is dying on his feet with head down and gloves up, gets in a few good smacks but in any recent Olympics, you would have said the Russian is fucked now.
The Russian wins.
It was a shit decision. Conlon was easier the better fighter. But the scoring has been nobbled. Instead of counting the hits, now it's on things like aggression and generalship, or in other words - personal opinion. Appeals of decisions are not allowed now. The scoring system is so confusing that every second hand account I've read gives a different version. All this makes it possible for travesties to occur.
Worth bearing in mind that in the fight the other night where the Russian Tischecko won on a dodgy decision - one of the judges was Irish.
Side note: Angry Michael Conlon is sexy as fuck.
