Joe won pretty convincingly to me. Sure he wasn’t hurting Hopkins, but that hardly matters does it? Hopkins knocked him down n got his credit for it. N then joe slippy slapped him around for the entire fight. A scoring shot is a scoring shot. Without relatively evenly spaced out highly effective eye catching power shots to balance out joes constant superficial slapping...there’s only one way to score it. I feel like you’re trying to compare it to a fight like Bradley vs provodnikov where brads landed far more scoring punches but ruslan scored massive brain rattling power shots. However, even though Hopkins did score and he did so with what you might call “better” shots...they weren’t “holy moly how the hell is calzaghe still standing” shots. Hopkins scored a knockdown n got the points for it (provodnikov didn’t even get credit for a knockdown/TKO he scored on brads), but Joe threw more and landed more for the big majority of rounds. It’s pretty simple and it’s not controversial.
