Interesting article here:

http://wbcboxing.com/wbcVersEng/index.php?...dbd49at2359cd76

I see the issues with the 10-point must system, and agree that their should be more liberal usage of 10-8 rounds. Right now, there is very little credit given to what makes the difference between a 10-9 round dominated by a fighter, and a close 10-9 round. I would even like to see even rounds at 10-10 brought back.

I agree that some form of computer system is needed, because too many master score-sheets look like shit.

I disagree with the judges needing to push buttons, which rely's on the judges eyesight and physical coordination to do so. This has failed in Olympic boxing, so how would it be better in pro-boxing?

Over time, I may be communicating with the WBC about the proposed pluses and minuses of this system. I do think a backup pencil and paper system would still be needed by the local commission and sanctioning body in the event of computer failure.

Thoughts and feedback? The WBC will plan to introduce ideas for this system this fall at the annual convention in Mexico this year.

A lot of times, I , like many others, don't agree with ideas that the WBC has, but here Jose Suliman talks about the proposed computer ringside scoring, the overuse of 10-9 rounds, and other interesting elements that I have written about as well:
