Dave Moretti, a seasoned boxing judge from the United States, has been actively scoring fights since 1977. With a wealth of experience in the field, Moretti has presided over the scoring of over 90 world title fights throughout his career. However, his recent performance as a judge in the Devin Haney vs. Vasiliy Lomachenko bout has garnered widespread attention and criticism from boxing enthusiasts across the globe.
The clash between Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko took place last night at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This highly anticipated showdown for the undisputed lightweight championship proved to be much more closely contested than anticipated. Despite Lomachenko entering the ring as the underdog, he displayed superior skills and emerged as the stronger fighter.
In a surprising outcome that left the boxing world astounded, Devin Haney managed to retain his undisputed lightweight championship through a unanimous decision (115-113, 115-113, 116-112). However, it was not the overall scorecards that drew the most mockery from boxing fans.
One particular point of contention revolves around Dave Moretti, who served as one of the judges for the bout. Moretti awarded the 10th round to Devin Haney, despite the round being completely dominated by Vasiliy Lomachenko from beginning to end. Furthermore, it stood out as one of the most one-sided rounds throughout the entire fight for either competitor.
