So, did someone get paid big for this outcome?  Even the commentators can't believe it.

AIBA just dropped those horrible refs

 

International Boxing Association drops judges and referees from Rio Games after reviewing Olympic displays so far

 

The sacking of some boxing judges from the Rio Games will be seized upon by the conspiracy theorists as vindication of their suspicions but there is to be no reprieve for the fighting Irishman who fired up the storm of controversy. The decision which provoked Michael Conlan’s four-letter condemnation of everyone involved in Olympic boxing as cheats will not be overturned.

"It appears that the judges of the Conlan fight – a Brazilian, a Pole and a Sri Lankan - are not among those sent home, so we must presume that AIBA do not consider that he was robbed." 

 

In a perfect world - send the sketch ref's home, bring in a fresh team and rematch any bouts that had petitions filed.   It sounds like a larger issue with the quality of AIBA judging.  This brings new meaning to "never leave it in the hands of the judges" smh~

The video of the full fight got pulled from everywhere.   It is that guy.  The fight was a robbery.  Now the "winner" who beat Conlan pulls out from a cut.  All good for Stevenson though.
