True but he sucked it up didn't he! Done himself good IMO, considering how it ended.

I reckon some of his beltline stuff hurt Fenech though.

Exactly my point McGrain. Even outsped, old and balding and taking an absolute shellacking he stayed in there and had to ability to tuck that left hand under the rib cage and hurt a true iron man.

Uploaded Harada-Medel II for anyone that cares.

I've tried a couple of times to score Harada-Medel II and never managed it with my one track mind, excellent fight though it is. I'm **** at scoring fights in general tbh and really don't envy judges.

Nonetheless, I've just re-watched it and managed to create a passable scorecard that I'm still not satisfied with. The point deduction always seemed a bit gash to me, though it isn't easy to tell by the footage, so being highly biased as I am, I've copied the AP and not included it on my final card.

Anyway, 144-143, in favour of Harada, though I could see it wider in his favour. Maybe even a draw or a one point swing the other way to Medel without the deduction, but something tells me I might be conning myself a tiny bit somewhere in the back of my mind. It was very hard to score and a lot of the rounds were close. Harada fought cleverer than first time without compromising his work rate and outworked Medel a lot of the time, even against the ropes where Medel was so dangerous. Medel though didn't help himself at times spending too much time trying to set traps and not punching. Still, he had a lot of success and blocked/parried a good bit of Harada's work. Hurt him on a few occasions too, but probably didn't get quite get enough going on a consistent basis. Might have been interesting to see if he'd hurt Harada earlier than what he did in the last round.

Harada: 3,5,6,8,11,12,13
Medel: 1,2,9,10,14,15
Even: 4 & 7

Great fight though.

I guess I need to rescore as I remember Harada winning pretty comfortably (in terms of rounds of course)

I wouldn't use my card as any kind of barometer mate. Some of the rounds that I gave to Medel probably could've gone Harada's way, and Harada won a slightly greater number of his rounds by a bigger margin.

Don't make me doubt myself either, ****s sake. I had to watch some of those rounds more than once and it still took me ****ing ages to come up with a card that I still don't like.

That is something like I scored it, don't remember who I gave which rounds. From memory one of them was deducted a point as well, can't remember who. Also I think the commentary team were posting their scores as well.
I'll see if I can dig my scorecard out.

Anyone seen the Zarate-Zaragoza fight, how did he look in that? The second battle of the Z men!

Yeah, Medel had a point taken off in the 10th for supposedly thumbing Harada in the eye that had been cut earlier on. That's what I was on about mate. It looked like rubbish to me, but it's hard to tell; Harada has his back to the camera and they're in a bit of a tangle. Medel's manager surprisingly didn't have too much of a problem with the decision, but he was quite hacked off with the deduction.

I thought he nearly had him in the 15th! I can't work Medel out looking at some of the fights he lost, possibly more to it specially the on the road fights. Hope he got payed well for them.
