Default Scores for Margo vs. Williams

How did my fellow ESB ers score actually score this fight? Didn't two judges have it 7-5 Williams? So, if they scored the 12th round for Margarito (if he would have won it, I don't think he did) it would have been a majority draw.

Yup, if Margarito showed a little more heart in the 12th, he would be walking with his title

I scored it 8 rounds to 4 for Paul

I had it 7-5 for Paul, I think I gave Margarito the 4th round, can't remember though. You're right, let it go all out in the 12th and Margarito keeps the belt.

He came very close to getting a draw, but Williams did a good job of not letting him win the 12th. As a result, we've got a new WBO champion

7-5 Paul. Margo only needed the last round to keep his belt. That's gotta sting.

I see this thread has gotten very few responses as most dont actually have a scorecard to post!
Typical of a fan to just post what the HBO retards feed them.

While some of you decide to take HBO's word that Williams was up 5-0 after 5 rounds at face value.
I saw and scored the fight round by round, and say different.

Heres my complete scorecard......
Rounds 3,4,6,7,8,10 and 11 for Margarito.
Rounds 2,5,9,and 12 for Williams
Round 1 I had even.

7-4-1, which means 116-113 in favor of Antonio Margarito.

I thought what Margarito said post fight was 100% correct.
While Williams threw loads of punches, the great majority of them were picked off by Margarito's gloves, arms and elbows.

Margarito picking off Williams shots was'nt anything that Margarito did that was subtle. It was'nt hard to spot, Margarito was visibly and clearly picking off Williams shot at the pass.

In turn, Margarito's work to WIlliams body went un-noticed by the retards at HBO.

Margarito may have thrown less, but he clearly imo landed the harder, cleaner, and more effective blows.

It was a good contest, but I'm one that does'nt reward fighters like Paul Williams that do very little significant punching.
He was flicking and slapping more than he was punching.

As for Margarito, its a pity that judges often times dont reward body punching. Margarito because Williams was in constant retreat, did his best work to the body.

HBO gave alot of credit to Williams for his jab and volume and punches, but for someone who was supposed to have landed a significant amount more than Margarito, you look at Margarito's face and you could'nt tell he was in a fight.

It was a close fight with alot of close rounds, but I feel Margarito was disrespected by the judges for the champion that he is.
There is absolutely no way that Williams took the title from the champion. Not by running away, and not by the authority (or lack of) that he used in his punches.

116-113 Margarito!

Divac, you scored the first round a draw and gave the second to Margarito, I'm convinced you were drunk watching this fight.

Margarito most likely spent himself by having a huge 11th.....in hindsight, expending so much energy offensively in the 11th may have cost him the title, as Margarito punch output took a dip in the last round that cost him the round.
