When You Think You've Won And They Cheat You: Reaction GIF Spotlight

Any fan of boxing history can get a chuckle at the Highlander TV series' take on the way it used to be. Adrian Paul, with Rick Faraci as his opponent, gets a bit of a letdown after taking part in a bare-knuckle rumble to last the distance, as police on horseback break it up. If you've ever read the shenanigans of the time period for our sport, you know this isn't exactly exaggerated for television. This was boxing's wild west period. The corruption rarely involves horses, these days. Judges, referees, sanctioning bodies, athletic commissions and promoters, but not usually horses.
