He did not prove that he was a world-class fighter. He proved that he is a world-class weasel. He knew that he had lost before the gift decision was announced. His clearly told him before the last round that he need a knockout to win. Whatever happened to the old days when fighters would admit that that got a gift when the fight was that obvious?

Ain't no harm in telling the truth. It is good for the soul, and will make you a better person and fighter. Now J-Ben is on the list of judges to get a payback robbery in the future. Oh, YES! He can expect to be rob in any close bout in the future. Holla!
