It's round by round as it happens. You'd have to make the argument that an unofficial hit keeper is using his influence to bias events. To dismiss out of hand is to simply dismiss all judging that doesn't comport to your personal bias.

I'm willing to accept compubox as inaccurate; but it's difficult to make the argument that it's inherently biased and subjective like boxing judging. Even the example shown slowed down I saw some missed potential punches on the part of the youtube reviewer. Not that I'd call them punches necessarily but just that it's possible for that to have been the case
