The Indian boxers seem to be at the receiving end in the ring – from both the opponents and the officials. A day after Vikas Krishan Yadavs controversial loss, it was the turn of Manoj Kumar, the 64kg boxer, to cry foul as he lost an exciting pre-quarter final match to Britain’s Thomas Stalker.After walking out of the ring, Manoj was furious and said this was “cheating”.The point system being awarded by the computers has come in for a lot of criticism and Manoj was declared a 16-20 loser. However from the Indian boxer to the entire support staff, they cried foul on Saturday night.”This is a district tournament it’s not an Olympic tournament. Cheating, cheating, cheating,” shouted Manoj in sheer agony later.Foreign coach BI Fernandez, who has been handling the Indian boxing team for so many years, was also vocal in his criticism.”The last round was 7-4 to Kumar, why no other rounds? All rounds were the same, it was very poor judging,” said an upset Fernandez.Coach GS Sandhu, who never minces words, was crestfallen. “My athlete did extraordinary and you saw for yourself what happened,” he thundered.Local hero Stalker won the first round 7-4 and maintained the lead by winning the second round 9-5.It was then the turn of Manoj, a Commonwealth Games gold medallist to go flat out in the last round.The Indians feel this is not an isolated incident and they are being victimised by the scoring and judges.advertisementBritain’s Stalker also said later, “I don’t deal with the scoring, I just go and fight. In amateur boxing it happens all the time where you think you have won more points the judges differ.””I felt sluggish after the first round and being in my hotel for the last week hasn’t done me any good. All I wanted to do was fight. In my next bout I know I will do better. I didn’t box too well but a win is a win,” said the Briton.The controversy over boxing with a local pugilist also being involved has made small headlines in British papers as well.And with the Indians being at the receiving end again, the contingent has lost faith in the scoring system in a high profile sport like boxing.
