Great fight....Ayala got smashed but to his credit hung around.

The live cast crashed on me in the last round and I thought I had lost.

Great comp...down to the last round of the comp....last fight of the round......last round of the fight....last 30 seconds.

It dont come any closer than that

Gonzo is a dicksucker, i give him no credit for beating me...

I fell victim to corrupt judging. This is an outrage.













Congratulations Ashley.

The system used to score fights will be the following, as voted by you:
  • correct winner = 15
  • correct winner + correct decision pick = 25
  • correct winner + correct stoppage pick = 30
Decision picks:
  • correct wide or close decision pick* = 30
Stoppage picks**:
  • 3 rounds or less off correct stoppage round = 35
  • 1 round off correct stoppage round = 40
  • correct stoppage round = 45
Draw = 50 points

* a wide unanimous decision: a decision where all three judges score the fight for one fighter and two or more of the judges' scores are four points or more apart e.g. 116-112, 115-111, 116-111, etc.
* a close unanimous decision: a decision where all three judges score the fight for one fighter and two or more of the judges' scores are three points or less apart e.g. 115-112, 116-113, 114-112, etc. A split decision or a majority decision is scored as a close unanimous decision.

** a disqualification or retirement will count as a stoppage win.

Blue riband events - really big fights like Pavlik v. Taylor, Calzaghe v. Hopkins, etc. - will count for twice the points as usual big fights. Scores for those blue riband events get multiplied by two.

How to post your picks:

Please post your picks as follows: e.g.

"Calzaghe UD wide", if you think Calzaghe will win a unanimous decision over Kessler at a difference of points greater or equal to four points

"Calzaghe UD close", if you think Calzaghe will win a decision over Kessler at a difference of points smaller or equal to three points, a majority or split decision.

"Kessler T/KO 3", if you think Kessler will beat Calzaghe by stoppage, disqualification or retirement in the third round. Always pick a stoppage round when you make a pick!

"Calzaghe Draw Kessler" if you think the fight between Calzaghe and Kessler will end up a draw.

If you pick a stoppage - say what round!
If you pick a decision - say "wide" or "close"!




Joining late

Anyone can join the league at any time, even late. In order to give late starters a chance to compete fairly, they will start in the middle of the pack, at the median position, out of those who have participated every week.

Missing a week

If for some reason you miss a week and you are in the top 25 in the league, you will be allocated the median score for that week. Everyone has 3 lives (will be "saved" up to three times). This, to ensure top pickers are not demotivated by their failure to pick one week.

Clean sweep

A clean sweep system will be applied for weeks with 5 fights or more. The clean sweep bonus will be 20 points.

This is the format used for the competition in the general forum. We analysed all the best possible ways of scoring things, and this proved to be the easiest to tally, yet still gave as much possible room for movement on the table. It is fair for both knockout finishes and decision bouts, and places no emphasis either way.

I definitely think we should do this, it just adds another dimension to the comp. As it is, there is often very little movement. It makes people analyse the fight to a better level as well. Please put down your thoughts. We tried to organise this last comp, but to many people couldn't be bothered posting a short reply...

Cheers.

Edit, Blue Ribban is basically our joker event. Just a different term, thats all.

Sounds alright MSTR.
Decisions will still be a pain for the scorer though.
Scorecards arnt always made public, could be a hassle trying to track down scorecards for the 'lesser known' type fights.
Other than that sounds like fun.

We going to kick off next week with Sturm/Pitman or shall we give it a rest for a week or two?

Personally i think we should try to drum up some more participants before we start, it would be nice to get around 20-25 guys this time.

Yeah good scoring system.
Yeah some might be hard to get the results, but probably not many of the fights that we will do.
Some of the fights are the ref's decision still.
Do you think we should start a new thread or just pin the rules at the top?

The scores are usually on boxrec... We might just have to cut fights that are really unheard of. I reckon we would be hard pressed to find one where the scores weren't known but. If we couldn't find it, i'm sure you could google it.

Its unfair otherwise as it gives people choosing KO to much of an advantage.
