Its interesting when a British boxer benefits from a controversial decision (like this time around) it is suddenly a case of those robbed are really only "Sour losers" or "poor sports" (especially if they are Irish of course) and when Conlon battered the face of a well beaten opponent, Beacham claims that Conlon some how was not dominant enough? Ultimately in Olympic-Boxing its about points more so than aggression. But Conlon won on points and aggression. If he had been fighting for Britain or if the Frenchman who felt aggrieved this time was British it would have all been "a terrible travesty". Frankly, in the Aliev fight, it was very evident that both boxers were using their heads inappropriately. So either both penalized or neither.
