On the other hand, it happens here in America too. In the 96 Olympics in Atlanta, Floyd Mayweather was robbed in the semi-final match when EVERYBODY thought he won. Even the Ref raised Floyd's hand by mistake, and the fighter who won was surprised.

As long as there is no universal governing body, these kind of controversies will always happen.
oh yeah I forgot about Mayweather.
