Olympic boxing judges

The hits just keep coming for the 2016 Rio Olympic games — this time, in one of the few events where hitting an opponent is actually encouraged.

According to a Sky Sports report, the international boxing association has sent home a handful of judges and referees following some of the most questionable decisions ever see in Olympic boxing history.

One of the most controversial endings happened to Irish boxer Mick Conlan, who promptly let the judges know his feelings in the form of a middle finger. He also spoke out about the decision and didn’t back down from his words in the days after his “loss.”
