Default Re: 12 -15 rounds and scoring fights

Or have there always been enough judges around who score even rounds that an odd/even number does not really impact either way?

Just asking as I think/believe/imagined??? that I score draws more commonly in this era than I used to?
The tradition of scoring a close fight a draw seems to have gone out the window. I suspect there were a lot more draws in the '15 round era' than now. As sadly things like the challenger having to win clearly, with the benefit of the doubt going to the champ, are no more.
