PrettyBoyFloyd said:OMG I can't belive how this went down. I hate nevada judges and am now worried about the OSCAR and FLoyd fight. I had Barerra winning 115 to 113. There was a definate knockdown and jay Nady ruled horribly. Screw Nevada. Barerra clearly won this fight and I am pissed as ever. What a take away.
PrettyBoyFloyd said:Marquez was the better boxer clearly and this fight hurt me. I broke down and bout it for a (pardon me) bull**** decision.
PrettyBoyFloyd said:I meant to say Barerra, my bad. The 7th round was definately a knockdown. I am getting sick of my scorecards being nearly identical to lederman's who I think scores it right everytime, and the "judges" scoring it so far from our cards. They need to do something to improve the accuracy here.
Was the Taylor/Hopkins fight in Nevada and what about Taylor/Winky? Just curious. The fight was worth the money but the results were not.
I agree. I was expecting the fight to be a draw or either fighter to win by a point or two. Some of the rounds were very close and I thought they could go either way.ERIK said:I dont see how you can say either guy CLEARLY won.
ERIK said:I dont see how you can say either guy CLEARLY won. I thought a draw was coming about half way through the fight.
I scored it for Marquez 115-112 but can see a win by a few points either way.
I was very surprised by the one judge only giving 2 rounds to Barrera. If any fighter woulda had the judges on thier side I woulda thought Golden boys fighter would.
I have never liked Jay nady & tonight we saw again that he is way overated.
He is not even in the top 5 refs in Nevada.
rosslin_john said:i dont know why they score like that in that night.. if marquez is gonna win, the difference should be 2-3 rounds..not 8 rounds.. Demetrius Hopkins win over Steve Forbes was questionable.. Forbes dominated that fight..and the if Daniel Ponce de Leon really won over Gerry Penalosa, the margin should not be 7 or 8 rounds...i don't know..its maybe the climate or the food in las vegas that make those judges have that kind of wierd decisions...:dunno:
We scored this one the same. I had it the exact way you said on this one.tommygunn said:if the knocdown had been scored corectly i would have had the fight to barrera by 4 rounds going into the 8th round. with nady taking away the point and rulling no knockdown i gave the 7th to marquez 10-8 so obviously i had it level. i had barrera at the end of the fight by 2 points 115-113 but im with you guys here you could argue some of the rounds were a bit close.
the judging in the fight was terrible again and its all to frequint now in LV. :thumbsdown:
PrettyBoyFloyd said:I do not understand how so many people including every one of the commentators were baffled at the horrible scoring and nothing is done about it. Is there no justice that goes along with something like this? I may sound crazy but if 99 percent of fight fans saw this fight at around a 2 or 3 round decision/draw how can BOXING let this bullshat judging keep happening. They can't just turn a cold shoulder at 3 people doing the opposite of what their job is meant to be.
From all the treads that I read, most had Marquez winning also. And some of them were there for the fight. I personally would not have disagreed if they had MAB winning. If the knockdown was counted them it would have been a little closer. (big mistake on the ref) The only problem I had was 118-110. To me it was closer but I believe the right man won.
