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

Eubank 1(10-,2,3,5,6,9
Sherry 8
even 4, 7

a relatively easy fight to score.Don't see why there was any controversy here to be honest, even allowing for Eubank being deducted the two points for fight ending butt.I guess it was because sherry was the first big fight that really exposed how eubank could really struggle if made to fight in a stalking/pressuring role.He was constantly moving, only stepping in for a lead right or flurry, then back on his bike.

However eubank coped well enough early and built up a nice lead.Eubank became increasinly frustrated with the movement and Sherry's taunting of him as it went on, but generally his defence was top-notch, so even if he was struggling to put more than one punch in at a time on a mobile target, he was still outworking/outlanding Sherry and winning close rounds.Sherry tired badly towards the end and looked in danger of being stopped before the butt.

Kalule vs Steve Gregory

A totally one-sided, truly tedious shutout.No need to score this.Gregory-a thoroughly mediocre standup stylist-spent most of the fight getting worked over on the ropes and was floored with one of the first punches of the fight.Would almost certainly have been over in a few rounds, had Kalule not been possessed of Locche level punching power.Kalule barely took a hanful of punches the entire fight and his defensive work is the only reason to watch this one.

Gregory later got knocked out in bout 4 rounds by ayala, which was one of his more notable wins, but really he was mediocre at best.
