Options are given as DW having two 10 - 8 rounds and no rounds scored even.
How did you have it?
115-111, possibly 114-112 Fury
I chose 114-112 in favour of Fury by my actual view is it was 115-112 Fury.
I shared the opener, gave Wilder the 2nd, 9th and 12th of which i scored both a 10-8 round. Fury won all the rest 10-9.
I really thought that except for the 2 knockdown rounds, that Fury won all the others.
I think a lot of fans feel that way and I don't think that's unreasonable. However there were several rounds that were close. (the first two rounds for example) Maybe there were 3 or 4 rounds that were close enough to give to Wilder if you were really looking to give a round to Wilder. But Wilder didn't win any rounds outside of the knockdown rounds clearly. Did he maybe edge out 2 or 3 of those rounds on "clean punching" or "quality punching" enough to get a draw? It's arguable but it's a stretch and giving Wilder enough rounds for a draw may be favorable judging.
I thought this was pretty clear tbh. Can't really see an argument for giving Wilder any other rounds (Perhaps the first which was a feel out round but I disagree)
I can also see an argument for the knockdown rounds being scored 10-9 Wilder, as I felt Fury won the rest of the rounds outside of the knockdown.
115-111 for Fury.
Watching live I had it 113 - 113. 7 rounds Fury, 5 rounds Wilder with two KD.
Watching the replay I scored it the same. I think draw is the right decision and not a robbery at all. Fury won 2 rounds clearly but all the other rounds were actually quite close as both men missed a lot of punches.
