8) Roy Jones Jr. hosed at 1988 Olympics
Roy Jones Jr. dominated South Korea’s Park Si-Hun in the 1988 Olympic Gold Medal match, outscoring him 86-32 according to ringside boxing numbers. But the judges handed a 3-2 decision to Si-Hun who, to his credit, admitted that he did not deserve the victory. The International Olympic Committee found that three of the officials had inappropriate contact with South Korean officials, but allowed the decision to stand.
7) 1985 World Series first base call
In the ninth inning of game six of the 1985 World Series, first base umpire Don Denkinger called the Kansas City Royals’ Jose Ortega safe at first base on one of the most routine calls in baseball history. Video replays clearly showed that St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Todd Worrell beat Ortega to the bag. The Royals rallied to win game six 2-1 and would eventually go on to win the series in the deciding game seven.
