Roy Jones Jr. relives the travesty of the 1988 Olympic boxing match
“We wuz robbed” is an old boxing expression. But not until the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, South Korea, did people fully understand its meaning. That’s when Roy Jones Jr. thoroughly destroyed Park Si-hun in the light heavyweight gold medal match, landing 86 punches to Park’s 32, only to watch the judges steal the match from him. In this film, directed by Randy Wilkins, Jones and others relive that travesty of justice. Eventually, Jones would become a world champion in several divisions, but as this minidocumentary — part animation and part painful memory — makes clear, Olympic boxing and Park Si-hun have never recovered.
