    Again Rail showing that he cannot be respected when it comes to sports knowledge. If you don't even have enough common sense to know what happened in this fight, then how in the world do you think you should be people to buy your shitty picks?

    The WBO had an impartial five-judge panel look at the fight and they unanimously scored the fight for Poochiao.

    HBO commentary being biased is true but Bradley still lost the fight... no matter how people try to spin it.

    denial makes you sound even dumber than the original post of yours. Bradley doesn't even think he won the fight. You are an idiot. Plus in the video Bradley was constantly backing up. Thouroughly dominated.

    Well its like Chick Hearn use to say, 17,500 refs but only 3 matter. the media and you guys are recreational amature judges t hat know next to nothing. I too got brainwashed by Jim Lampley until I re watched the video.

    You had an alleged play on Bradley. You won the bet. He did not win the fight however. Be thrilled you got the cash, but quit dumbing yourself down. You ruin your already dwindling repuation with this nonsense. When you need clients since you cannot win anymore, I would try and act intelligent once in a while.

    How does a judge score a boxing match anyway? Where do all those 230+ points come from? Obviously, from the outcomes, scoring boxing is not an exact science like it is with French ice skating judges.

    If a fight is 12 rounds, why isn't the scoring 8-4, 7-5, 6-6 or whatever? I mean does anyone really believe 116-112 increases the exactitude of what amounts to a subjective guess in the first place? (Those subjective guesses are the worst kind.)

    Question Re: here is why Bradley beat Paquiao

    I listened to a boxing specialist talking about the fight and he said that Pac man didn't deliver "punishing" punches! He said that his opponent did! Just his opinion!

    I did watch the video (way before you posted it) and it was just as biased as the bad HBO commentary. The video showed all the times Poochiao missed, but not the times he landed.

    I don't like Poochiao, but he won that fight.

    why would Rail rewatch a cut and paste video that is biased instead of the fight with it on mute to make up his mind.

    fucking idiot

    How do you get to be a boxing specialist and then advance to be a judge? Is there an Academy somewhere that accredits this talent? I want to learn.

    If I finally have had enough and head downstairs to Jaime, what do I say?

    "Jaime, you wanna judge tonight's Pacqui-whatever fight? Turn off the damn lawnmower and get in the car! It's three miles down the road!

    It would be just as credible an opinion.

    Jeff,

    Have you ever heard of the '10 point must system'? I guess not... the winner of each round gets 10 pts, the loser less.... try to do a little research before you post. I know that's going to be tough for you but give it a try.

    So what is this 10 point "Must" system. What does "must" even mean, and why is it relevant? Couldn't they just go with a "10-point system?"

    And why multiples of ten every round? You win the round, and you get one point. How hard is that?

    LOL. It's easy, kinda like judging oxen at the Texas State Fair.

    If the current system is so reliable, why am I hearing all the complaining about the fight the other night?

    Winner gets 10, loser usually gets 9, but sometimes 8 ( like if he was knocked down). I think you should be able to have even rounds. Boxing is clearly viewed as rigged along the lines of horse racing, tennis, etc.

    How does a fighter get 10 points for winning a round, and the loser gets nine points? What is this? Boxing affirmative action? LOL.

    And still waiting for the first person to explain this "Must" system to me.

    Must what?

    whether you call it 115-113 or 7-5, does it really make a difference? It's the same thing. The 10 point system makes it easier to give credit for knockdowns though.

    Must what?

    Are you really this dumb? What part of 'must' don't you understand? Or is this another of your attempts at humor?


    OK, Jeff, follow along.... I'll type real slow so you can follow. The winner of each round MUST get 10 pts. The loser of each round gets LESS than 10 pts. At the end of the fight, they add up the total pts and the boxer with the most points is the winner. If they have the same amount of points then it's called a draw. Got it? Before you ask 'why' they score boxing like this, I have no idea. Why don't you start another thread asking why does tennis score their matches starting with love and then go up 15 to 10 pts at a time instead of starting with 0-0 and going up 1 pt at a time. That should give you another couple of weeks of material.
