He completely out jabbed Lewis, landing 60% of them compared to Lewis who only landed 33% ... not only was he more successful he also connected more than Lewis overall by landing 134 compared to 106 for Lewis.
Mercer was more efficient that night and dictated the fight.
He was more efficient at getting hit with big punches, too.
He landed thirty more power punches
than Mercer. If you can produce a scorecard that has the loser landing thirty or more power punches by compubox than the opponent, i'd be genuinely impressed. The only one I can think of that was recent was Bradley's win over Pacquiao
