2 boxing judges expelled, another suspended. Bout damn time they did something about those hacks.

The Azerbaijan boxer had a lead going into the 3rd and final round, in that round he was knocked down 6 times. However the ref never issued any standing 8 counts, the Azerbaijan boxer was awarded 10 points and held on for the short lived win.

AIBA has been involved in controversies regarding Azerbaijan's program as recently as last September, when British network BBC reported on allegations that in exchange for a $10-million loan, Azerbaijan's boxers would be promised two gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics.
