Default Re: Just rewatched Froch v Dirrell how did you score it?

I agree with this totally. When scoring fights I tend to score 10/10's much more than most people. I round needs to be won not nicked or just given to. It ties in with the Americans and their inability to have a draw, someone has to win.

I regard to the OP, Dirrell robbed himself by fighting far too defensively. Had Froch by two points I think. Have not and will not re watch it.
