i see you got evander with two draws there to bill, you seen the first lewis fight?I gave Larry the Jinxed fights and the Nielsen fight. I had Larry up by 2 points against Norton, the I thought Larry lost the last round, whcih 2 of the judges gave to Larry.
I don't always go with the Judges scoring when I first see the bout live, BUT there in the best position to judge any bout. Its a lot different when your judging at ringside as a judge then judging at home when your friends are talking to you. Also the commentators don't help, as they say things that will sway your way of scoring. Most, if not all of the Judges today, go through a lot of training on what to look for and how to properly score a bout, and most of them do a good job. When I have a problem with a decision, I will watch the bout over again, with the sound down and if possible, I will talk to some of the judges that actually did the judging.
On the 1st Holmes/Spinks bout, the Judges were:
Lawrence Wallace 145-142 (Spinks)
Dave Moretti 143-142 (Spinks)
Harold Lederman 145-142 (Spinks)
On the 2nd Holmes/Spinks bout, the Judges were:
Joe Cortez 141-144 (Holmes)
Frank Brunette 144-141 (Spinks)
Jerry Roth 144-142 (Spinks)
All these Judges are rated very high and that is the way they scored it. The only Judge that didn't Judge many bouts was Cortez, and he was the only one that voted for Holmes in either bout. If it went the other way around, some people would say that Spinks got robbed.
I liked Holmes more and more as he proved that he was surely one of the Greatest Heavyweight Champions ever.
he should of never been dq, he should of won the fight by ko, he then destroys him again in 1 round, then when he beat tarver the first time he would of retired 50 - 0 and never fought again. He would of enver been knocked out but because of the L on his record, he went ahead and did so. Just like larry holmes, if he would of reached 50 and 0, which is should of thought by many, then he would of never fought again either.
