Boxing fans slam 'outrageous' detail in Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk official scorecards

Tyson Fury was beaten by Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night.

The official scorecards from Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk have angered boxing fans.

On Saturday, all eyes were on the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as Fury and Usyk entered the ring to fight for the undisputed crown.

During what was an entertaining encounter, Usyk nearly toppled the Brit in the ninth round but Fury was saved by the sound of the bell.

Eventually, the fight went the full distance with Usyk winning via a split decision, becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

After the bout, the official scorecards were revealed, with judge Manuel Oliver Palomo scoring it 115-112 in favour of Usyk, Craig Metcalfe awarded the fight to Fury 114-113 and Mike Fitzgerald scoring the contest 114-113 for Usyk.

Reacting on social media, one fan said: “Outrageous scorecards again. Never a split decision in a million years. Thank God Usyk got the decision.”

Another tweeted: “Fury never won round 2 & 12 they tried to rob Usyk but failed.”

A third fan added: “Usyk robbed it should have been a majority decision, if itvwas in the UK he would have been robbed 100%.”

Someone else wrote: “To think the ONE judge had fury winning is ridiculous.”

A fifth commented: “That 115-112 was a bit of a stretch…But what a fight wow. Can’t wait for the rematch.”

Another fan said: “How on earth did a judge give fury a win.”

Speaking after his victory, Usyk said: “Since 2008 I was planning for this. It’s not for me. It’s for my God, my supporters, my country, the Ukrainian soldiers, Ukrainian mothers and fathers, children.

“But now I want to go to my home, I want to rest, and take a break. I want to eat, sleep, kiss my wife.”

He added: “Yes, of course. I am ready for a rematch.”
