Sports Letters: Draw your own conclusion

Sir: Your main article on Saturday's fight couldn't have been further from the truth. I am an English expatriate living in the US. I paid $50 (pounds 30) to watch the fight live on HBO.

At the end of the fight, the three commentators (all Americans) including George Foreman, decried the result. One of the commentators said: "Tonight two fraudulent judges stole the result." Foreman said: "Tonight I am ashamed to be an American. Britain could at least be proud in the knowledge that Lennox Lewis is the best heavyweight boxer in the world." Finally, the Governor of New York has ordered an investigation by the State athletic commission regarding possible bribery and corruption.

I saw Lennox Lewis dominate the fight. I have no doubt he was robbed.
