Anthony Joshua

I want the guy to do well and it'd be great if he turned pro asap with bums like Hasim Rahman still getting title shots but @ the decision in the final.

The Italian should have got that one.

Same with Charlotte Dujardin in the dancing horses contest, a decision unjustly in favour of the hometown favourite. Understandable I guess but unjust.

Yeah, really was an awful decision. Cammarelle dominated the ring and definitely landed more punches. Joshua had about 1 good minute at the end of the fight and supposedly this was enough for the judges to say he deserved it on countback

I've heard some say that Joshua was schooled by the Cuban Savon in the earlier match in the tournament, yet won? Sounds like he's gotten a few shady decisions.

Just watched the match and I must say, Joshua clearly did not deserve to win. IMO, he looked like he was punching air at times. I guess Joshua received extra points for non-existent contact.

At least Fraudly Harrison deserved his gold medal. Can't say the same for Joshua.
