Fight fixing case study

The Brief

 Following allegations of cheating in a boxing match, our analysts were asked to examine images of the boxers' hands.
 

The Findings

 We were able to reveal that one of the boxer's hands was illegally bandaged, which gave him an unfair advantage in the fight. As a result, the champion, who had lost the fight, was reinstated and the referee and seconds were sacked.
 
The pictures show the different bandaging on the each of the challenger's hands.
