‘Boxing is super f***** up’ – Logan and Jake Paul fume as scorecards show Canelo Alvarez was close to draw vs Bivol

LOGAN PAUL blasted boxing as “super f***** up” following the scorecards from Canelo Alvarez’s defeat before brother Jake called for boxing to change the system.

The Mexican was stunned by Dmitry Bivol in Las Vegas last night as the Russian defied the odds to defend his WBA light-heavyweight world title.

Logan and Jake Paul are demanding change in the boxing scoring system


All three judges scored the fight 115-113 to Dmitry Bivol, who took the 12th round

Bivol won with a unanimous points decision as all three judges scored it 115-113.

But despite dominating the majority of the fight, Tim Cheatham, Dave Moretti and Steven Weisfeld each had it 105-104 to the champ going into the 12th and final round.

That meant should Alvarez have done enough to pip the last round, he would somehow have salvaged an undeserved draw – with the trio of judges giving him the first, second, third, fourth and ninth.

And YouTuber-turn-boxer Logan was absolutely livid as he exposed the questionable scoring, just weeks after Jack Catterall was robbed of a world title win against Josh Taylor.

The American tweeted: “Canelo was undeniably outboxed and his opponent STILL only won seven rounds (according to scorecards).

“Boxing is inherently super f***** up,

“Gimmicks aside, it’s why I’m so bullish on @jakepaul and the solutions he’s trying to implement for fighter pay and scoring.

“Time for change.”

Paul’s younger sibling Jake also had his say on the scoring compared to the punching stats as he mocked defeated Canelo – then vowed to beat the Mexican within three years.

The Problem Child said: “This is why boxing scoring needs to be changed.”

He continued: “And just like that, Canelo Alvarez loses to Dmitry Bivol.

“An amazing fight by Bivol. I’m two inches bigger than Bivol, twenty pounds heavier.

“Give me three years, I take out Canelo in the same way. He’s on the ropes like he won.

“He only won three rounds out of the whole entire fight.”

Other fans on Twitter also piled in with their fury.

One wrote: “These scorecards are INSANE. Bivol had to win the 12th round to win the fight.

“The fact all three judges gave the first four rounds to Canelo once again INSANE.”

Another added: “F***ing unreal. CANELO WON ALL FIRST 4 ROUNDS ON EVERY SCORECARD. That is filled before the fight cards.

“I had Bivol up 3-1 after 4. The only acceptable scorecards for that fight are 118-110 & 117-111 Bivol truly.

“116-112 Bivol is giving Canelo every benefit of the doubt.”

Canelo – who controversially got a draw and a win over rival Gennady Golovkin – was initially magnanimous in defeat, accepting there were “no excuses”.

The 31-year-old said: “I lost, he won.

“He’s a really good fighter. I felt his power, I felt it was a good fight.

“No excuses, this happens in the sport of boxing.

“Of course [I will invoke rematch clause]. This does not end like this.”
