As it turns out, numbers do lie. 86-32. That's how badly Roy Jones Jr. outhit Park Si-Hun, in the Gold Medal Round of the '88 Olympics. You don't have to understand how a score card works to know that's an ass-kicking. But when you're fighting a South Korean in South Korea numbers take on a more interpretive quality. Despite dominating the match, Jones lost the decision 3-2. Si-Hun would apologize to Jones for the decision and, later, South Korean officials were reported to have bribed the judges.
