On Saturday night Sunderland super-lightweight Glenn Foot was unanimously outpointed by Guisborough's Josh Leather.

And it's fair to day the consensus on social media is that the 30-year-old was "robbed".

While the judges scored in favour of Leather, who retained his IBF European title, after 12 entertaining rounds, many who witnessed the fight at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, or watched it live on BT Sport or Boxnation, were quick to show their displeasure on social media.

Here's 12 of the best comments sent to the Sunderland Echo Facebook page.

Jason Stan Metcalfe: "Even Leather thought he'd lost it. Utterly disgraceful."

Hilda Geraldi: "Glenn Foot is one of the best boxers to come out of Sunderland it's about time the people of this city got behind him and sponsored him to enable him to continue because he could achieve great things so come on Sunderland get this out there !!!"
