Klimas criticized the refereeing of the Usyk – Fury fight

The manager of Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs), Egis Klimas, harshly criticized the refereeing of our compatriot's fight with Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs). The representative of the Ukrainian boxer was especially outraged by the scoring of Canadian Craig Metcalfe, who gave the victory to the British boxer with a score of 114-113.

Klimas said this in an emotional interview with the Second Out YouTube channel. According to Usyk's manager, boxing refereeing has recently turned into a real lottery and there is no guarantee that anything will change dramatically in the rematch between Oleksandr and Tyson.

"Lately, I've been just amazed at the decisions of the judges. I just have no words. There are no words. I was sitting in the exact same place as the judge, and I just don't understand how he could have counted this. It's just a shame, a shame! Very bad judging. We can't do anything about it. One fight is scored well, the other is not, it's like a lottery. You win like a lottery if you get a good judge. I don't want the judges to be on our side, I just want honest work from them," Klimas said.
