    Smith got that, now watch them give him the insulting draw or worse a McCarthy win.

    The commentary team missed some punches for both fighters as well

    According to their punch statistics

    CBS landed only 20 jabs all fight. WTF.

    Was the punch statistic man on the stellas early today and is an Irishman?

    CBS deserved winner for me, McCarthy put in the performance of his life but just let himself get needlessly outlanded in a few rounds

    Commentators on U.K. DAZN and Andy Lee horrendously bias in favour of McCarthy.

    He lost that fight fair and square. A rematch wouldn’t be any different.

    McCarthy has a fatal flaw, he is a lazy fighter and he throws too many close rounds away. CBS will just need to fight the same fight again.

    Good decision as the right man got the nod in a close contest although I had Billam Smith 2 points up.

    Maybe this will teach McCarthy that he can't take a full minute of a round doing nothing but retreating and eating punches in the clinch and on the ropes.:ohno

    Scored it a draw but good to see sensible score cards for a change

    Agree. If CBS could work out his stamina issues, he'd probably KO McCarthy in a rematch.
