    I think 8-4 is fine, even though I had it 6-6. For judges having a hard time seeing the body work up front, it's just easier to see the cleaner shots and Fulton generally landed them. I think "morally" it should have been a draw and I wouldn't say Fulton clearly got the better of it, but no problems from me on those scores.

    No, Teofimo acted like a *****, Brandon is acting like a man who never had a chance, and knew he got ****ed raw without lubricant.

    The body is A+, but the face is a 5 at best.

    This. Some fights are just that hard to score. I feel that judges should be able to score rounds 10-10 maybe that’ll change things.

    Fight was too difficult to score for anyone to say they got robbed, imo. I said during the fight I thought a wide range of scores would be fine and certainly to include 8-4 in favor of either man.

    Fulton wasn't even interested I'm landing hard punches, he was content just touching Brandon. Brandon was taking it to Fulton and kept backing him up.

    If Mora was physically capable of deducting points for low blows...not sure it would affect the outcome with two judges scoring it 8-4, but at the very least it may have discouraged some of the dirty tactics we saw. Warnings won't cut it.

    Not really.... it was actually fairly easy to score. Unfortunately for all of the people who scored it for Fulton, they're sickeningly biased, so who they wanted to win, won regardless. Brandon's body work, volume was enough to trump the clean pitty pats Fulton landed in most of the rounds, and Figueroa benefitted from hurting him in several of them.

    This wasn't an 8-4 fight.

    8-4 is what GGG did to Canelo in their first fight. 8-4 is competitive but very clear.

    bought and paid for , which by definition is a robbery.

    Dead even and if anybody won the spirit of the fight it was Figueroa. How can you come up with 8-4.

    I politely disagree. I think if you were a scoring the fight as a whole then a draw would be best, but 8-4 in either direction is fine.
