OK, I know this has been batted around allot. How many think that scoring should be revealed at the end of each round as opposed to the current system.

I have mixed feelings about it but in general don't favor it. If a guy builds a lead he's going to fight to the level of the scoring. Also, if a guy is way behind, he will be discouraged to fight on.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I think that the current system is definitely the way it should stay in regards to scoring. I do, however, think that each judge should have to explain the way or reason that they scored each round accordingly. At the very least, I believe that in controversial fights the judges should be more scrutinized. Open scoring = Bad.

Open scoring kind of kills the suspence of the decision. Also, I'm against seeing fighters coast because they know or they think they have a big lead.
