Three rounds of a one-sided fight,
At least that’s how spectators feel;
The judges’ scorecards were a steal.
At first overjoyed, now not right,
A delicious win stripped from sight.
What did they think to score that way?
Sure, he will fight another day,
But his record will wear this flaw,
Which will stick in the fighter’s craw;
Love for the game may go away.
