Grab your tin foil hat, there could be another twist in the tale of boxing judge CJ Ross, who has been lambasted for her 114-114 scoring of Mayweather versus Alvarez.
The judge had previously come under fire for her 115-113 scoring of Tim Bradley over Manny Pacquiao but her scoring of Saturday's fight has raised even more eyebrows as nearly everyone had Mayweather winning the fight by indisputable margins.
According to MMAMania.com, it's emerged that the odds for a 'split decision' victory for Mayweather were 21:1, which is massive for Vegas odds and some believe that this could explain Ross' scoring.
So far no credence has been given to these suspicions and the Nevada State Athletic Commission hasn't said whether it's going to investigate the suspicious results but the backlash has been heavy from all corners.
Teddy Atlas called CJ Ross a crook in a post-fight discussion, while Mayweather lambasted the decision to an ESPN reporter at ringside, calling it 'a joke'.
His father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., said Ross had cast a shadow over the fight "For the biggest fight in the world in the history of boxing — you know what everyone is saying? Boxing is crooked. It’s crooked."
There have been calls for Ross to quit her position and never judge another professional bout, as her professionalism and neutrality has come under heavy scrutiny.
