Arrow Fights where the winner lost

Had Chavez-Taylor gone to the judges and Taylor won, I would say that Taylor won the decision but lost the fight.

I think that Hopkins beat the shit out of Jermaine Taylor and lost the judges decision.

What other fights happened where the man awarded the win was more/severely damaged than the loser?

The man awarded the victory in your first example, Chavez, had WWAAAYYYY less physical damage than Taylor did.

I assume you are not talking about robberies but fair decisions where the winner ended up losing more than the loser. I'd go with Jirov-Mesi

How so? you mean psychologically lost because of the KD? Or woulda gotten the decision but shouldn't have?

Not quite sure what you are getting at here, IMO, Taylor fought like a warrior and should have won the fight in every way. He gave as good as he got against Chavez for god's sake, that wins him the fight psychologically, as well as on points for me.

Take my last point back, I didn't read your last sentence sorry. Yeah you are probly right about both those picks, particularly Chavez-Taylor. Also Bowe-Holyfield trilogy, Bowe won it, but Holyfield emerged less damaged, whereas Bowe was basicly shot.

Abraham-Miranda. Abraham won it by virtue of Miranda being deducted so many points. But he had his jaw broken and lost so much blood that it looked like an axe murderer had gotten loose in the arena.

And then he 'won' another series of fights against Golota but came out of even more shot.

A guy with Bowe's defence will never see more than a few good years.
