Park Si-Hun vs. Roy Jones Jr. (1988)


Although no evidence exists that this fight was fixed, many are left to wonder. In the 1988 light-middleweight division of boxing, Park Si-Hun came up against his opponent Roy Jones Jr. Jones was the obvious winner, landing 86 punches to Hun's 32. However, in a 3-2 vote, Hun was determined to be the winner. Four months after the infamous fight, the three judges who voted for Hun were banned for two years. Jones was voted the Outstanding Boxer at the Olympic Games.
