Conspiracy or accident? Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were marked in the wrong corners on the judges scorcard

0

An administrative error on the scorecard used in Floyd Mayweather’s victory over Manny Pacquiao has ignited conspiracy theorists into suggesting the Filipino should have won the bout.

Judges Glenn Feldman, Burt Clements and Dave Moretti, named ‘white’, ‘blue’ and ‘pink’ on the scorecard respectively, all award Mayweather victory on the night but in every column where they mark their scores at the end of the round, he is labelled as being in the red corner.

This is the point that has galvanized certain boxing fans into suggesting the fight may have been awarded to the wrong fighter because Mayweather was actually in the blue corner in Las Vegas. It was Pacquiao who took red.
