Full Version: Paulie's and Direll's last fights...How can you lose when you clearly outboxed your opponent?

I don't understand decisions like this at ALL, they both outboxed their competition to the point where any a 5 year old could tell who won.



fuck do the judges be looking for? nea.gif

Hometown judging.... Simple as that really.
Keith
There is more then just hometown judging going on. If too many boxers fight like they do, boxing will die. I dont think people pay 50$ to see a pay per view where a guy tries to win a round landing 3 or 4 punches. Dirrel displayed very little "ring generalship" against Froch and gave the judges an opportunity to score against him. The safety first mentality in the ring is tough to pull off. People (including judges) want to see some damage inflicted.

I had Malinaggi over Diaz by 1 point: The margin of victory by which Diaz was given the fight was more hometown related than Diaz winning. It should have been a draw to no more than a two-point swing for either boxer and no one would have cared.

I had Froch 6-5-1 in rounds over Direll with nothing to choose between them for clean punching, effective aggression, ring generalship or defense. There could have been eight rounds in that non-fight that you'd have to flip a coin to decide who won. Another draw to a two-point edge for either boxer. I gave Froch the slight edge for aggression. Direll needed to be a little more definitive to win.

I was more upset with Darell being penalized for holding when Froch was not penalized for rabbit punching. Since so many rounds had so little happening, I have no problem with the decision.

Two crap fights with no interest in me seeing a rematch. Two fights that will make you appreciate the DELETE key on your DVR's/TIVO'S.

Thank you Keith. Thank you!

I wish I could give both Direll and Froch a grade lower than F for technique because as far as I am concerned both boxers showed neither. (See my comments in the SPOILER thread on the fight for more details.)

Dirrel landed more and had Froch hurt and HOLDING.

Dirrell is the ONLY guy in the ring doing damage...apparently the judges...and you..missed it.

If boxing survived Oscar's running and pitiful PPV cards..it will SURELY survive anything.

Boxing even survives Gayweather's type of running.
