    How is it the judges give Manny the decision over Thurman, but not when he fought Horn? The punch total, the power punches, and the connect percentage all favoured Thurman. How did he not win? (The knockdown was due to Manny stepping on his foot)

    You really believe that? Next you will say the facial damage on Thurman’s face was makeup!

    I agree judges need video replay. I'd also go far as to say the ref should have it as well.

    Your reason is strange though.

    It’s because PAC fought Horn in Australia. Horn also wanted his fight with Crawford to be there as well, but Crawford wouldn’t go for it.

    Just cost more won't really change much.
    Next you'll be advocating Robotic Refs & judges

    When i watched the fight live i thought pac stepped on Thurmans foot on the knockdown we never got a real replay of it. But i guess it was legit as it was ruled a knockdown so we have to go with that.

    There was no foot stomp, just Lennox being a ****.

    So we can go up to 3 minutes between rounds so the judges can rewatch it? And maybe he needs to do some rewinding a few times to study different angles of whether a punch landed flush ... so let’s go 5 minutes to be safe.

    Nice sport you’d end up with there.

    Just imagine how the sport would change if you could allow the fighter and his corner to issue a challenge like in American football, baseball, and tennis. You get to call out the judges on their crap if the scoring isn't being done right. But then again, I dont know how you could implement such a thing if the judge could just hide behind subjectivity and plausible deniability.

    What about this idea? Each judge is responsible for 4 rounds. So one judge is assigned the 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th for example. They watch that round and score it. Then while the 2 rounds they are not assigned to are going on they can look at the replay of round to verify. The other judges are not privy to their scores.

    There is only one score card, but it is more accurate. lol stupid?

    No no and No! The day the ref pauses the action to go check the replay to make a call is the day I stop watching.

    Or how about we let compubox determine the winner? There is no chance of controversy there lol. Yeah right.

    “I hit you with 10 slaps that round to your 8 left hooks. I win.”

    This.

    And this.

    Instant replay, **** that. We need a uni****ingfied sanctioning body first, kill all these ****ing belts. And move to a yearly tournament system like Tennis or something.

    Why are there always tons of new account after a big fight? ****ing ALTS!!!

    Trying everything he can to discredit the win. Even trying to take away the knockdown. Thurman even said he got caught. He admitted to the defeat. Yet the hatters still got to make **** up.
