Watch: Paddy Barnes' Immediate Reaction To Disgraceful Conlan Decision Says It All
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Michael Conlan's Olympic dream has been shattered and it's an absolute disgrace.

Anyone watching the fight knew full well that Conlan outboxed his Russian opponent, but after seeing the scoring for the first round, where Vladimir Nikitin was awarded the round by all three judges despite being outclassed, it became obvious that something was up.

Conlan let rip after the decision was confirmed, branding the AIBA "fucking cheats" in a passionate interview that everyone watching fully agreed with, and he was not the only one to speak out.

Paddy Barnes' immediate reaction tells you exactly how he felt about the decision:

And he has been on the warpath on Twitter too.

Understandably disgusted.

Fighters taking a stand against the AIBA in this manner is a very, very big deal and hopefully it gets the international recognition that it deserves. It's utterly shameless corruption and is frankly embarrassing for the organisation.
