A night of big fights with controversial endings will air Wednesday night on ESPN2 starting at 7 p.m. ET.
“Debated Decisions,” a five-fight show, includes some of the biggest names in the history of boxing. Felix “Tito” Trinidad’s majority decision over Oscar De La Hoya in 1999 had fans questioning the judges’ scorecards of 114-114, 115-114 and 115-113. But CompuBox numbers showed De La Hoya landed 97 more total punches through the fight (263 to 166).
The broadcast will also include De La Hoya’s welterweight rematch with Shane Mosley in 2003, promoted as “Redemption”, after a split decision victory for Mosley in their first fight three years earlier; the third installment of Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez in 2011 that ended in another close majority decision; “The Super Fight” between Marvin Hagler and “Sugar” Ray Leonard for the middleweight championship in 1987 and Floyd Mayweather’s controversial unanimous decision over Jose Luis Castillo in their first fight in April, 2002.
