‘Robbed twice in a week!’ Graham fumes after losing latest title fight amid more judging controvesy
Boxer Nathan Graham says he was ‘robbed’ of a title for the second time in just over a week after losing out on points for the International Light Middleweight Masters belt on Sunday night.
Graham went into the fight against Adam Battle at London’s York Hall fired up and determined to right the wrongs of the controversial decision not to award him the Southern Area title after he outboxed Kristian Agyei-Dua last weekend.
Judges ruled that fight a draw, despite Agyei-Dua admitting afterwards Graham should have won by at least two rounds.
The former Aylesbury United and FC striker dusted himself down from that disappointment, though, only to suffer a worse injustice in his second title fight in seven days, when judges scored him lower than rival Battle, a decision that has left the fighter fuming.
“Robbed twice in 10 days ! I lost!?” he said on his Facebook page after the fight.
“Thanks to my true friends for the support still.
“My time will come, God willing!”
