Default Biggest points split in a completed 12/15 round fight?

I've just been reading about Nana Konadus 12 round points win over Gilberto Roman. One of the cards tabled was 119-103 and it got me thinking what was the largest points differential between 2 fighters in a completed 12 or 15 round fight.

Any one know or care to hazzard a guess?

Two judges scored Holmes-Cobb 150-135 in favor of Larry. (As did I.) A judge also scored Holmes-Berbick 150-135 for the defending champion.) Over 12 rounds, one judge scored Ali-Mathis 118-104 for the GOAT. (Muhammad floored Buster a few times in the last two rounds.)

One of the judges of Ali-Lubbers(12 rounds) scored it 60-42,and there weren't any knockdowns in the fight!(Ali had injured his right fist in the second Norton fight and fought practically one-armed.)
The other two judges had Ali ahead with 17 and 15 points respectively, so there were hardly any calls for an immediate rematch.

McCallum vs MAnnion had some ridiculous cards.

when Alan Rudkin fought Lionel Rose one Australian judge Ray Mithcell scored it 75-60 for Rose, every round for Rose with the 13 th even so one round by a 2 point margin, they're were no knockdowns.
The remarkable thing about it is that the fight was a split decision with one judge, another Australian scoring for Rudkin 70-69. The general consensus at ringside was that the fight could of been a draw or a close decision either way.

No because Ray Mitchell was the correspondontent for the Ring and his write up was only about him justifying his scoring of the fight with hardly any report of the fight.

Very true about the cards at the Rose fight mate, most ringsiders split, I think there's a letter written by Mitchell in Boxing News around the time, I might dig it out.


ps. You know/recall a local fighter called Tony Cunnigham? He used to spar with Rose and fought Kotey. I met himon holiday last year, he knew your dad too.

No, that was Howard Cosell's swan song. He was pissed that Holmes-Cobb was being held during the Thanksgiving holiday season, and was hoping it would end quickly so he could catch an early flight to spend some time with his wife. Once it became clear that Tex wasn't going to cooperate and make a prompt exit, he cut loose.

Before their match, Howard bitched to Cobb that his match with Holmes was going to cost him that coveted quality time with his wife, whereupon Tex quipped, "I know. She sent me a thank you card!" After their bout, Cobb proclaimed that he could do boxing no greater service than to free it of Cosell's presence.

If Holmes-Cobb had been scheduled at a time to Cosell's liking, he would have been praising the skills of Holmes and guts of Cobb. (He probably would have also enjoyed Tex's humor a great deal more.) If Cosell only had to perform a studio review of their bout, he wouldn't have been bitching about what an egregious mismatch it was. He editorially ranted against Hagler-Lee before the fact, but made no such protests in advance of Holmes-Cobb, which took place several months later.
