Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

Marlon Starling - Simon Brown This was one of my "holy grail" fights from the 80's that I somehow had never seen. I was a little disappointed. Brown was not ready for someone of Starling's calibre. I was shocked to see him backing up most of the fight. Maybe he never beats Starling but he surely gives him a better fight a couple years later. It's interesting that Brown really seemed to improve immediately after this fight. I'm sure it was a great learning experience and he didn't take a brutal beating. I had it 8-3-1 Starling and I was trying to be generous to Brown. The split decision was criminal.
