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

Ken Buchanan W15 Jim Watt (this is now on Youtube)

I had it 145-141 Buchanan (9-5-1). I think Harry Carpenter had it a little closer. I have no problem with that. There were a lot of close rounds I just think that Buchanan was edging most of them being just a little busier and with his ring generalship.
It was a very interesting tactical affair. I found myself contrasting it to Arguello - Watt. Arguello seemed to use the Cardinal rules versus lefties: front foot outside the southpaws front foot and throw plenty of lead right hands. Buchanan hardly seemed to acknowledge he was fighting a southpaw and boxed him pretty straight-up and as usual initiated things with his jab. Both men (but especially Watt) were marked up pretty good at the end of the fight. Buchanan had some kind words for Watt at the end of the fight. Entertaining fight albeit not a barnburner. I'd be interested in hearing some other scores on this fight. It wouldn't shock me if some gave it to Watt.
