THE worst thing about
incompetent officials in boxing is that often an erroneous decision rendered by
them will affect not just one of the boxers involved but both.
If bad enough, their decision will hurt the man on the receiving end and also the one perceived to benefit from it. It will hurt the loser because he has lost yet do something similar to the winner, too, simply because the sheer lunacy of the decision drags them into an overblown controversy they never asked for.
In the case of last Saturday’s WBA super-middleweight title fight between Callum Smith, the champion, and John Ryder, this rang true.
