The British Boxing Board of Control’s Robert Smith talks to Matt Christie following yet another controversial night in a British ring
There have been suggestions that Josh Warrington should have been pulled out sooner. What was your perception of the main event from your position at ringside?
I’m sitting six metres back behind a perspex screen. The people closer are the judges and the referee. I spoke to Howard [Foster, the referee] after the bout. In all but name, Josh Warrington was a world champion. Although he was hurt, Howard tells me Josh’s eyes were clear and, when asked, he said, ‘I’m alright, Howard.’ So he addressed the referee by his name. So Howard let it continue.
You will notice that a couple of times, Howard was concerned about Josh’s jaw so he’s gone to have a look in the corner and Josh was readily talking. Also, during the bout – after the fourth – Josh was talking to his opponent. So Howard felt that he should be given the benefit of the doubt and be allowed to continue.
I actually thought Josh was clawing his way back into it. So with all that in mind – Howard’s experience, that Josh’s eyes were clear, he was talking and he was fighting back plus the fact that Josh was a world champion, it was an important fight, his qualities are well known and other people have come back from similar situations to win – Howard made the call to let the fight continue.
With that in mind, that Howard knows Josh as a fighter and made a decision because of that, would the same chances have been given to Lara if he’d have been in similar trouble?
People are assuming things. The first priority of the referee is the safety of the boxer. Once he’s decided that he can continue then other factors may come in. How is he recovering? He knows Josh has an experienced corner – now that’s not shifting responsibility, it’s a fact that has to be taken into consideration. And I would hope that if Lara had been in the same position, if he had responded in the same way, the fight would have continued also.
Were you uncomfortable at any point watching the fight develop?
First of all, what took everyone by surprise, was the shock of what was happening; I was shocked that Josh went over as he did. It was a good shot and he was obviously hurt. His legs were stiff and you could see he was not his normal self but he’d just been hit with a very good shot.
But yes, I am always concerned if anybody is in that position.
Will Howard have to face any hearing?
It’s too early to say. I’ve spoken to him but I am awaiting reports to come in regarding the whole tournament. But from initial discussions, he acted in the proper way. To my mind he’s a world class official and people will say he got it wrong, people will say he gave the boy the benefit of the doubt. There are numerous examples of fighters being given the benefit of the doubt and going on to win the fight.
What was your reaction to the scores in the Zelfa Barrett-Kiko Martinez fight?
I can tell you this: The closest people to the action are the judges and the referee. I am six metres back and I had Barrett winning by a couple of rounds. Two metres behind me is the promoters. Now, when I spoke to Eddie Hearn, he thought that Barrett had nicked it by a round. The commentary teams are significantly further back – they’re in a box – and they had it a draw. Further back still, at an angle, you’ve got the pundits like Johnny Nelson and Adam Booth. So the further you went back the more the perception of the result changes.
My own opinion was that Martinez was full of industry but a lot of the punches, his hooks and swings, were landing on the gloves whereas Barrett was landing the cleaner shots. Now people can interpret that in many ways.
You had two judges who had exactly the same score (118-111). Now I’m not defending anyone but that’s a fact. So you look closer and the judges only agreed on five of the 12 rounds. In the remaining seven, there were three rounds where one judge scored it even and there was a further two rounds where there was a complete split – one went for the red corner, one went for the blue corner and another judge called it even. That indicates to me that they were close rounds.
With the current system, a close round can be 10-9 and a wide round can be 10-9 and maybe that’s where something needs to be changed. That’s where we get the difference of opinion.
In your position, can you trigger a change of thinking in regard to the scoring?
The whole world needs to change. I have stood up at sanctioning body conventions and said we need to consider making a wide round 10-8 and a round where a knockdown is scored, 10-7. But just because there’s a knockdown doesn’t make it 10-8 now if it’s a flash knockdown. It’s down to interpretation but I do believe there is value in looking at the system.
What is your opinion on open scoring?
We don’t permit it here because there could be a crowd reaction. I also think you could get a situation where a fighter is so far ahead they just get on their bike and run which would take away the endeavour.
I quite like that you don’t know the result until the end. We’re not like football or rugby where you get points or goals on the board. We are the only sport where you don’t know the result until the end.
I do think that half the problem is that someone gets a feeling that someone has won it and they haven’t. I think on Saturday, because of his endeavour, a lot of people thought that Martinez won when I don’t believe he did win.
There is clearly an issue in the viewers’ perception so frequently differing from the actual result. It can be wildly different and that is also different to any other sport.
I understand that. But from your position at home you can be swayed by the commentary.
Is there more that the Board of Control can do, in the face of accusations of incompetence and even worse, in terms of how you react to the controversial decisions?
We get the reports, we read the reports and if we’re concerned about anyone’s performance we act upon it. I do think that the current time period without crowds, where the majority of people who are voicing their opinion aren’t in the crowd or aren’t at ringside, has something to do with this. Again, those who are in the arena have different views. Some are one metre away, others are 100 metres away. Some can see replays, some can’t. There are lots of factors why people are disagreeing with results but that doesn’t mean it’s crooked or people are incompetent.
I do respect the opinion of everyone but that doesn’t mean that they’re right. I thought Barrett won by two rounds and I accept that people will disagree with that.
What was your reaction to Eddie Hearn saying that it will be difficult to get fighters to the UK because of the ongoing controversy?
Of course it hurts. I don’t think it’s helpful that people are saying that but I do understand why people are saying that. It all stems back to how the fight is scored. You can have a 12-rounder that’s a rip-roarer and someone wins every round by 10-9 and it then looks on paper like it’s been a whitewash when it hasn’t been a whitewash. That’s where the problem lies.
Are the judges encouraged, if a round is close, to score it one way or the other rather than scoring it even?
Yes. I say to people they need to find a winner from each round.
Does that not create a problem when the best solution to scoring a round that’s close is to score it level?
I’m not going to argue with that but I do feel, in the space of three minutes, you can generally find a winner. I’m not saying they HAVE to find a winner in every round. A lot of the time we can forget what happened in the first minute of the round, or in the first half of the fight. You know as well as I do that you can watch a fight at ringside, then go back and watch on TV and it looks like a completely different fight.
These are not crooked decisions. But I do believe there are flaws in the system that affect how the fights are scored that can be looked at. The key is to ensure everyone in the world looks as well because it’s imperative that all judges score the same way.

The start of the Champions League features an intriguing matchup between La Liga’s Barcelona and Ligue 1’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Both teams feature among the best strikers in the sport: Lionel Messi is second in La Liga with 15 goals this season, while PSG’s Kylian Mbappe ranks first in Ligue 1 with 16. Whoever performs better on Tuesday could set their club up for success in the first leg of the Round of 16.
But soccer is a team sport, and it will take more than Messi and Mbappe to secure victory in Tuesday’s match.

As we prepare for another roller coaster off-season with the Minnesota Vikings, we are once again feeling the usual hope and optimism. With the draft around the corner, many fans and experts have their own ideas of what Vikings will do come April. Do you take the best available player, or do you draft for need? Or will Rick once again trade back and recoup some lost picks? Either way, it seems like for the first time in a while the Minnesota Vikings are in a unique position. Over the last few years, so many game-changers were selected in the 8-15 range. You can go offense or defense and get a guy that fits right in to make an instant impact.
For the first time in the Mike Zimmer era, it was the offense that carried this team and put us on the brink of a playoff spot even with a 1-5 start. So, assuming that continues with some new additions upfront, you would be right to believe the Vikings are going to be a strong contender next season. As always, the biggest challenge that new OC Klint Kubiak will have to figure out is how to protect Kirk Cousins and allow him to really take over in games.
Addressing our biggest issue!
Common sense would suggest the Vikings take the highest-ranked offensive lineman. Kirk Cousins was the 3rd most pressured quarterback in the league last season (38.6%) but still managed to finish in the top 10 in passer rating (105.0). The Vikings have done reasonably well over the last 2 years taking an offensive lineman in the 2nd round of those drafts and they have both worked out quite well, but we don’t have a pick in the 2nd round this year so maybe this is the year we address that position we so desperately need to improve on to allow our offense to be even more explosive next year.
Another option, however, is building our offensive line through free agency. The name that jumps up at you is Trent Williams, who the Vikings tried to acquire last year but he refused. The free agency pool seems to be filled with quite a few really solid offensive linemen that could instantly make our team better and would need no introduction to the league. A perfect example of a veteran lineman going to a team and making a huge impact is Andrew Whitworth going to the Los Angeles Rams and solidifying that line in the run and most importantly protecting the quarterback’s blindside. Paying for an established player in that position is one of the few roster moves that are very low risk and tend to work out more than often.
The most unlikely scenario would be to trade for one of the available players in that position. This wouldn’t be such a bad idea considering the nature of the position. Offensive linemen tend to play till much later in terms of age compared to most other positions. Ravens are said to be looking for a 1st round pick from anyone interested in Orlando Brown Jr who had a tremendous season at left tackle. The Vikings should strongly consider this as an option, Brown is 23 years old and will shore up that position for at least the next 8 years. A 1st round pick is a small compensation to pay for a player that would be a massive part of your offense for a decade.
The Other Side of the Ball
The Vikings’ strong point for the entirety of Mike Zimmer’s tenure as the head coach has been defense. That was not the case last season, the Vikings ranked 30th overall, our pass rush was non-existent (28th in sacks) and what was even more alarming was how easily teams were able to run the ball at will. Injuries happen all over the NFL but to have so many starters and their replacements out injured took a massive toll on the team. One thing that Vikings fans can be certain of is that there will be no repeat of this and we can be sure that our defense will be back to its usual self.
Not only do the Vikings have a lot to look forward to with players coming back from injury, but the young cornerbacks also really came into their own as the season progressed. Cameron Dantzler was the highest-graded cornerback since week 7.
Expectations or False Hope?
There is plenty to look forward to if you’re a Vikings fan, if we can somehow manage to put it all together, we can build something special. This offseason we have a very rare opportunity where if we play our cards right we can certainly put our names firmly in the mix for the NFC.

Read MoreNew York state Sen. Joseph Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens), the lawmaker spearheading the push for the Empire State to embrace mobile sports betting, doesn’t just believe the state legislature will pass a bill soon to expand sports betting in the state.
New York state Sen. Joseph Addabbo Jr. takes part in a swearing-in ceremony for his seventh term last month. Addabbo is a leading lawmaker pushing to legalize mobile sports betting in the state. (Image: NYSenate.gov)He also believes the first bets could take place later this year.“I remain optimistic that should it be in the budget April 1st, with a little initiative, our state government can get it up and running by Sept. 9th, which is the first day of the NFL football season,” Addabbo told Casino.org in an interview.It’s been nearly three years since the US Supreme Court opened the door for sports betting nationwide. New York did take advantage and approve retail licenses for its four upstate casino resorts. In addition, Class III tribal casinos are also allowed to offer sportsbooks on their properties.However, analysts and observers point out that New York misses out on a significant revenue stream since it does not allow mobile applications.For example: According to the New York State Gaming Commission, the four retail sportsbooks in the state generated revenue totaling nearly $3.6 million in January. Over the same month, Indiana – a state with roughly a third of New York’s population – saw its mobile and retail operators earn $29.3 million in taxable revenue.The senator said New York usually leads the way when it comes to state policy.“We’re that car in the right lane with four wobbly wheels, and we’re limping along,” Addabbo said. “And these other fast cars like (New) Jersey and Pennsylvania are whizzing by us. That’s an odd spot for New York to be in.”Sports Betting Part of NY Budget TalksA recent study by Spectrum Gaming estimated that mobile sports betting could generate more than $1 billion in gross revenue for New York operators. If the state sets the tax rate at 10 percent, that would mean more than $100 million in annual revenue.Addabbo’s bill, Senate Bill S1183, as well as legislation sponsored by state Assemblyman Gary Pretlow (D-Mount Vernon), sets the rate an 8.5 percent. However, that rate, like other portions of the bill are open to negotiation, the senator said.The senator also noted that the original sports betting bill he filed a couple of years ago gave each casino one skin. Now, the bill offers them two, which means a potential of 14 skins, or mobile operators, for the state once the three downstate casinos are awarded.I think that’s all part of the budget negotiations,” Addabbo told Casino.org. “How many skins and the license fee and the tax rate that is all part and parcel of the budget negotiations. It’s all part of the discussions that we’re going to have, and that’s where we’ll have to come to some agreement.”Still, time is of the essence.April 1, the start of New York’s budget year, is just 45 days away as of Monday. While that’s six and a half weeks, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters Monday, “in government, 45 days is a blink of an eye.”Addabbo Concerned State-Run System Can’t Meet DemandThe good news is that Cuomo is on board with expanding sports betting in the state to include online applications. The bad news is, his vision for sports betting varies significantly from that of Addabbo and Pretlow. Those lawmakers chair the gaming committees in the respective chambers.Both lawmakers’ bills call for New York to operate sports betting like New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. Each of the state’s casinos currently would get the chance to partner with two mobile operators.Cuomo, though, wants the state to be in more control. He wants a system more like the lottery allowing the state to derive more of the revenue. That approach resembles what Rhode Island, Montana, New Hampshire, Delaware, and Oregon have implemented.As Addabbo indicated, though, those states combined have a smaller population than New York.“I’m concerned about New York having a product that can handle the volume and the growing, expanding the market,” Addabbo told Casino.org.He also noted that Oregon leaders are already having second thoughts about their lottery-managed sports betting product.Just last month, Gov. Kate Brown requested that the state’s legislature take up a bill allowing the Oregon Racing Commission to regulate sports betting and grant licenses.“So, if it’s not good enough for Oregon, I don’t think it should be good enough for New York,” Addabbo said.

Foremost, scouting reports on Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson were primarily credible. It would be fallacious to assert that Jefferson was an untapped gem. The only oddity in the aftermath of the 2020 season is that Henry Ruggs III, Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, and Jalen Reagor were chosen in the draft ahead of Jefferson.
Why? Because Jefferson – as has been widely broadcast – set the NFL rookie record for receiving yards with 1,400. He was also chipped in seven touchdowns. The closest rookie to Jefferson in the yards metric was Lamb who fell short of the rookie-yard mark by 465 yards. And to be fair, fellow first-year wideout, Chase Claypool, pulled down two more touchdowns than Jefferson.
Other than that, the Vikings selection of Jefferson was a 500-foot homerun. By midseason, the 21-year-old was the team’s WR1. He was forcing Vikings enthusiasts to channel memories of Randy Moss in 1998 (minus the gobs of touchdowns).
Jefferson is also affable. To date, he has shown no diva-like qualities and even goes out of his way to exhibit inverse vibes. He was congratulatory of Justin Herbert for winning the meaningful version of the Rookie of the Year award. In a solemn manner, Jefferson seems like a “locker room guy.”
So, what did the scouts get wrong? There is a lot, but here are some of the biggies.
“Could Be Better Off as WR”
This one is comical because the opposite of the proclamation became evident early on.
Among seven weaknesses of Jefferson’s game, Walter Football declared that the LSU pass-catcher might be best served as a complementary piece to a true-blue WR1.
This is the full casserole of Jefferson supposed weaknesses per Walter Football:• Not a burner• May lack deep speed for the NFL• Leaner frame• May not be a big separation receiver• Could be better off as a No. 2 receiver• Could stand to fill out his frame• Should add strength
The “Could be better off as a No. 2 recevier” knock on Jefferson is laughable because he was targeted more than any other rookie since 2015 – and emphatically answered the call. He commanded 125 targets – which might have been too low – while setting an NFL record.
Jefferson can handle the WR1 title. It took about three weeks for the world to learn this.
“Dominated the Slot…”
Oh, yes, the insult thrown at pre-2019 Stefon Diggs is in full effect here. A “slot” guy was the most boisterous criticism of Jefferson’s skill set before he joined the NFL. He played alongside oodles of talent in LSU, so folks presumed he was maybe an overhyped slant sultan. Wrong.
This one was cooked up by Bleacher Report. And again, in fairness, sometimes players just rapidly improve or mature. Such was the case with Jefferson.
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report wrote this of Jefferson’s potential shortcomings:• Dominated from the slot in an offense loaded with offensive weapons in 2019.• Tape makes you question his ability to create space on his own.• Almost no experience against press coverage.• Drops show up a decent amount on his tape, enough to be a concern.
Jefferson led the entire NFL in 25+ yard receptions in 2020. That’s right – more than deep-ball artists like Tyreek Hill, DeAndre Hopkins, and D.K. Metcalf. Jefferson grabbed 16 catches of 25 yards or more.
If this is the prognosis of slot-only pass-catchers, well, more men should focus on slot assignments in college. It bodes well for NFL performance. Deep-ball prowess was no problem for Jefferson in 2020. He flat-out stretched the field.
“Technique as a Route Runner Could Use Cleaning Up”
Along with Jerry Jeudy early on in the pandemic season, Jefferson’s route-running was not suspect. In fact, it was applauded. Onlookers were awed at seamlessness on display as Jefferson did not provide one iota of route-running deficiency – especially for a player that replaced the departed-to-Buffalo Diggs. On the field, Jefferson and Diggs resembled each other for route-running acumen, and Diggs is a route-running demigod. And remember – Jefferson is 21 years old. Diggs is a wide receiver in the prime of his career, six years the senior of Jefferson.
One cannot struggle with route-running and snag 1,400 receiving yards. The two assertions are incongruent.
This is what DraftWire said of Jefferson’s rooms for improvement:
“While Jefferson proved to be capable of separating at the collegiate level, one has to wonder how much of that was related to scheme. He’s a good athlete, but his technique as a route runner could use some cleaning up. His footwork can be a little sloppy at times, and he can struggle to sink his hips into his breaks and make sharp cuts.”
These are falsehoods.
Ted Williams wanted to be known as the Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived, and he made an excellent case to own that moniker. His 1941 season was when he officially put the baseball world on notice that his skill with a bat would be hard to match, in large part because of his season-long chase to finish with a batting average of .400 or higher, which hadn’t been done in the AL at that point since 1923. Heading into the season’s final stretch, The Sporting News was among the many news outlets watching with awe and anticipation to see whether Williams, then 22 years would, would remain at or above the hallowed mark at season’s end. He did, of course, finishing the season at .406. In the Oct. 9, 1941, edition of The Sporting News, writer Jack Malaney recounted the late surge that propelled Williams over the .400 mark on the season’s final day.

Thumping Ted tags all bases for .406Could have sat out to protect average, but refusedBy Jack MalaneyBOSTON, Mass. — Though the Red Sox long since has clinched second place and could not go any higher, interest in the final week of the scheduled games was as keen as it had been in any week of the season. And as high as it had been all week, it reached its peak Sunday, September 28, the final day of the American League season. Teddy Williams was the reason!Every member of the Sox from Owner Tom Yawkey down to the batboy and clubhouse attendants, every baseball writer in Boston, and we say without fear of contradiction, every baseball fan in New England, was pulling for Teddy to finish the season batting .400 or better.TSN ARCHIVES: Mike Schmidt | Ken Griffey Jr.He did, unless the unofficial figures are off. But he had a narrow escape, and he had to make six hits in eight times at bat in the double-header played on the final day to get where he finished — .4057, which will be recorded as .406.When that double-header at Shibe Park started, Teddy was batting .3995, and that would not have been .400, if it had been his final mark. He had lost a little more than six points in four games, and it was the first time he had been under .400 since July 24.Ted had left Boston a week before that final game possessing a mark of .406. There remained three games at Washington and a like set a Philadelphia.The three games at Griffville threw him for a loss. He made only two hits in ten times at bat. That Washington park, with its long, spacious right field territory, is a tough one for Williams.There were a couple of off-days and then play was resumed at Philadelphia, September 27. Connie Mack had brought up a young righthanded knuckle-ball pitcher from Wilmington named Roger Wolff and sent him against the Sox in the first game. Teddy saw knuckle-balls every time he went to bat and the best he could get was one hit in four times at bat. That was when he fell below .400.There was tenseness in the Sox quarters on Sunday morning. Would Teddy be able to come back and regain that lost ground? Would he be stulted by other young pitchers attempting to make an impression? Would he play out the string if he managed to get up over the .400 mark?He answered all the questions and he answered that last one first. He would stay in the game and in the lineup to the bitter end, even if his last couple of times at bat dropped him to .398. He was adamant about that and Skipper Joe Cronin back him up, although Joe declared he was willing that Williams should protect his mark, if he so desired. Ted did not so desire.It did not take long after the first game of the double-header started to relieve everybody’s mind. Teddy got a single his first time up, a homer over the right field wall the next and then two more singles in successive times at bat. He finally failed to make a hit his fifth time up, although reaching first on an error and no attempt was made to change the miscue and credit him with a hit. It was a plain, everyday error.When that game was over, Ted was well above .400. he had nothing to worry about, because he could go hitless in four more times at bat and still be over .400 and there was little chance he would go four times at bat. It was almost sure to be too dark to complete the second game and that was true.However, Ted mad hits in his first two times up in the nightcap, the second of which was a terrific double that cut a hole in the loud speaker horns which hang from the top of the right-center field wall at Shibe Park. So he made doubly sure of his position.
It was one of the finest exhibitions of batting Philadelphia fans have seen in a long time. Later on, Boston writers were asked if Ted got real legitimate hits, or did the Philadelphia pitchers lay it in for him to wallop? The Philadelphia pitchers did not attempt to prevent Teddy from hitting by deliberately passing him or keeping the ball so far away or so far inside that he would not be able to get hold. But they did NOT toss the ball up to him. They pitched, and hit as few others can hit.Teddy was as delighted as a child with a new toy at having accomplished what so few other great batters have been able to do. He was the first American leaguer to bat .400, or better, since Harry Heilmann did the trick in 1923, when Teddy was a kid of five. Ted is the youngest man ever to do the stunt in the Big Show, also, and there are those who believe he is only starting as a great batter.As delighted as Ted was, Tom Yawkey was equally pleased. The fact that Ted, as a .400 batter, will be able to demand a higher salary next year than if he did not make it, did not disturb Yawkey. If Tom had his way, he would have four or five .400 batters and all would be paid their due. That’s the kind of baseball sportsman he is.
