Last night’s big Canelo Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara boxing match was as good as advertised, with the #1 and #2 light middleweight boxers tearing it up in a close fight. But Holy CRAP, no one can agree who won, since the whole fight pretty much looked like this (H/T FanSided
Lara said he was robbed, the media couldn’t agree on anything, and Canelo was busy taking selfies

couldn’t help telling Lara the equivalent of “throw more punches next time, asshole,” which is pretty ballsy.

Lots of writers and journalists on Twitter scored the fight for Lara, and just as many scored it for Canelo. But just like MMA, one judge wrecked the whole thing with a horrid 117-111 scorecard. Maybe that Levi Martinez guy just went to the bathroom in the middle of the fight.
