Just looking at some results, King Davidson was beaten in a split decision

Here's one man's view:


Ota defeats Davidson

By Joe Koizumi

Hard-hitting Japan-based American, Charlie Ota (AKA Charles Bellamy; (14-1-1, 10 KOs), 153.73, impressively kept his OPBF super welter belt as he came off the canvas in the first round and swept all rounds from the second session on to earn a split but well-received decision over previously unbeaten Australian southpaw, WBA #12 King Davidson (12-1, 6 KOs), 153, over twelve heats on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The official tallies were as follows: Thai referee Nopparat Sricharoen 118-109 (identical to this reporterís score), judge Kazunobu Asao (Japan) 117-110, both for Ota, and judge Brian McMahon (Australia) 115-114 for Davidson.

The taller Australian caught Charlie with a looping right hook following a southpaw left-right hook, temporarily dropping him flat with a thud in the initial session. The tide, however, surprisingly turned in round two, as the desperate champ recklessly began to mix it up toe-to-toe with the highly expected challenger and had the upper hand.

The less skillful but hard-hitting Ota gamely kept boring in with vicious shots with Davidson retreating and repeating clinches to avert his furious attack. Davidson, seemingly for fear of the champís go-for-broke assault, apparently appeared so intimidated that he couldnít again display his excellent form shown in the outset. Regardless of big or small margins, it was a night for Charlie who won almost all rounds from the second canto. The ref should have penalized a point or two for Davidson too often holding the aggressive champís arms.

There were a couple of problems behind the fight scene, as follows: (1) the Australian judgeís score looked too partial to his countryman, and (2) Davidson was the current PABA champ, and the OPBF rendered a mandatory shot to Davidson without mentioning heís the PABA ruler even though he was rated by the WBA. Wasnít it a rule that the OPBF should not rank the PABA champ in the OPBF ratings?

The loser, Davidson is scheduled to defend his PABA super welter belt against Elvin Marbun in Australia this coming August despite his defeat under the 154-pound limit tonight.


...the scorecards make for interesting reading!

Joe is pretty staright down the line, if Ota hadn't deserved the nod he certainly would have said so......

Thanks for that info Couldhavebeen.

Interesting to hear that Davidson was more of less roughed up,
will be interesting to see if other fighters try these tactics.

As for the judges, not a good look for Oz.
