Default How to watch a fight

Is there a trick to watching fights, for whatever reason at certain times in a fight a get drawn into watching one or the other and maybe big shots get landed on them commentators raise their tone crowd goes wild and a have half missed the action..... point scorin confuses me aslo

So basically am askin how yous watch it and score it or is it that iam just an idiot, ready for a blank or abuse

I usually watch the big fights with a bottle of cider... But i'm the same about the scoring, a couldn't tell someone exactly how to score it and sometimes i wonder about the judges....

I was the same when I first used to watch boxing as a kid and I ain't taking the ****
I also couldn't work out who was winning unless it was blindingly obvious

I must look mentally ill watching boxing on TV

I am often seen/heard by family members mumbling and arguing with Jim Watt or screaming abuse after hearing a Ian John-Lewis scorecard.

Can't help at all on this one I often watch fights the wrong way......I stupidly thought Chisora beat Helenius and even more bizarrely thought little Scots lad won on Sat for example.....should have gone to Specsavers !!!!
