First topic message reminder :

Not sure if anyone is staying up for this as I guess it's pretty much a guaranteed GGG win. Same goes for Gonzalez I guess

But if you are you can keep me company Hug

All my Irish mates are tipping Michael Conlan to go all the way after last night in MSG

I think winning in rugby today and stopping and English Triple Crown and Grandslam has gone to their heads personally

Anyway...after the Haye v Bellew shambles here's to a good night of boxing

It's accumulation for me..

I'd take one head jarring shot over five jabs like you milky but I differ in that I'd take one head jarring shot over a hundred even a thousand shots if those shots were causing no accumulative damage

Volume never outweighs quality for me..

So what you're saying is it's impossible for Paulie Malignaggi to win a fight against a puncher?

If you're a pillow puncher and I'm dominating without landing as many clean shots then it doesn't seem right.

Get the flags out but I agree with this - absolutely spot on.

Scoring a fight isn't about who lands the most punches - it absolutely, definitely isn't that.

If a fighter lands a flurry of clean, shoeshine punches and the other fighter lands a meaty, hurtful shot, then you'd score for the more effective fighter.

For me, it's control. Who controlled the round. That's the key factor in scoring a fight.

For clarification, I didn't say it was just about who landed the most punches, i used the term clean punches as that was what was quoted, then caveated the qualitative judgement you make in terms of power etc.  If you read the comments from Steve Weisfeld he makes the same points, which is why I agree with him, and irrespective of what the guidelines might say, he's telling you how the judges he speaks to call fights, not just offering his own opinion. He's also saying it's not the sole criteria, but by far the most important.

A good example might be kameda mcdonnell 2. One eye-catching shot a round for kameda, a stack of powderpuff shots from mcdonnell.  This got a wide disparity of cards. (Mcdonnell won easily for me because the volume so outweighed the quality). I'll take 1 head jarring left hook over 5 jabs, but not over 20 assorted punches landing, even if none of them hurt. The thing is mcdonnell can't punch, do you just say sorry mate, take up another sport, this ones for punchers only?

You can't escape the fact that the idea of boxing is to punch people. The problem with the concept of control is its very very subjective... to me if you've been in control you landed more/better shots than the opponent. If you 'looked in control' but didn't land a punch and your opponent did, then what exactly were you controlling.

Its the proportion of volume v quality v effect of those punches that is often a personal judgement.

But hey, if the rules say one thing, the judges have their own values, we all have our own values, it's not surprising no-one ever agrees on decisions!

Wink away you winker... Wink

Why am I saying that if Malignaggi avoids getting caught with anything hurtful the entire fight he can win surely..

Even if Malignaggi gets caught by one or two hurtful punches he can still win if he shakes them off and his punchees cause more accumulative damage on he's opponent than those few single shots he's opponent inflicted on him

If he's punches don't cause as much damage then I guess he loses..

But I get milky's point maybe volume could outweigh quality in a very few instances if the volume is just ridiculously higher..

I think there should be only one formula..Who is the most effective boxer..

These 4 criterion for judges give corrupt and inept judges an out.....

Easy to say I marked him up for defence............Harder to explain why a guy who is being woefully outboxed is the most effective fighter..

Derby won't agree he sees decent amateur judging every week..............but for me it is the way to go.

Depends what you call being outboxed if a guy is on the back foot making he's opponent miss but isn't stopping that opponent from marching forward and isn't landing anything of he's own, is that really otboxing?

Very subjective a lot of judges would reward that, I used to when I first started watching boxing I must admit, but now I see it for what it is- someone surviving but not having a fight. How can you reward that?

Maybe Ward favourite to beat him but Ward not a natural middleweight

At a catchweight of 164 you'd have to give Golovkin a great shot to beat Ward surely

I'd pick Groves at 168.........Jacobs though a top performance could have won had he been more willing at certain times.....

GGG is 35 next month and I see no reason anybody 8 pounds heavier can't think they can absorb is shots and outbox him..

He isn't hard to hit........

Certainly if Callum Smith impresses when he wins the title.......Eddie would be crazy not to get GGG over.......

Smith is huge........I think he'd be way too strong...

I think George would get clipped in that one..

But post Jacobs it's definitely got people surmising that maybe Golovkin power won't be same at 68

Be very interesting to see him against one or two of the bigger super middles Ramirez or Smith

A good ref should be watching the fighters, not judging who's winning (in my book). Seen a load of dodgy ref's cards handed in over the years.

It narks me that some people will say "I liked this more than that." It isn't about personal preference (though, that's effectively what it's become).

Golovkin would end Groves and Smith is untested (I don't reckon his chin is up to much - just a hunch but we'll find out soon enough.

Referees have a difficult enough task on their hands without asking them to mulit-task. The judges literally sit next to the ring. They're as close as anyone.

In order to get judging right, they need to be taught how to judge, attend regular training and be held to account (demoted to smaller cards) when they hand in a rotten egg.

They can't be any worse than the a lot of judges we have now.....He's 1 out of 3 anyway..

Referees know better than anyone how the fight is going.......Just how I feel.....Fair enough to those that disagree....

I would pick Smith to beat GGG and Degale too.

GGG will not move to 168, he isn't a big man and his power won't matter.

Also I like to add, I'm convinced Canelo will beat GGG, if that fight ever gets made.

Alvarez is too calculated in what he does to beat GGG, aside from size he holds no advantages, personally think you need speed to beat him and it's from there that Jacobs and to a degree Brook got their success.

You're taking a hell of a leap of faith to bank on Smith against either of those.

I don't see anything special there. I think he'll have his work cut out with Dirrell.

Slightly off topic I'll just interject to say that Sanchez should go after the Saunders fight and not let himself be dictated to by De La Hoya

Makes no difference to the promotion whether he takes that fight at all Oscar just looking to put a spanner in at every stage that fight needs no extra publicity it's already one of the most eagerly anticipated fight in the whole of the sport De La Hoya can't be trusted and has shown himself to be a total sh1t as a promoter

Its the proportion of volume v quality v effect of those punches that is often a personal judgement.

But hey, if the rules say one thing, the judges have their own values, we all have our own values, it's not surprising no-one ever agrees on decisions!

I didn't mean "looked in control" but who actually controlled the round. Occasionally, the pitter patter stuff will pip the harder single shots. The key is to be able to gauge that correctly - and not everyone can do it.

One look at social media after any 12 round fight these days tells you that. Some people (often so called "experts") don't know what the hell they're doing.

It narks me that some people will say "I liked this more than that." It isn't about personal preference (though, that's effectively what it's become).

So how are you gauging correctly when someone is controlling a round, that others gauge incorrectly? Do you have a formula or certain criteria that elevates your judgement above being just another fan's personal preference?

How are some football referees better than others? How are any professionals better than their peers: diving judges, ice skating etc.? Experience, knowledge, insight.

Judges should be entirely impartial (kind of where fans - and some/most media - fall at the first hurdle).

Someone had a pop at Lederman earlier. Yes, if you score as many fights on live TV as he has, you'll drop a bollock now and then but I find him a consistently good scorer (as is his replacement Weisfeld) who explains what is unfolding.

At the end of the round, the question is: who got the better of it? And if you're hesitating when trying to split them, give it an even round.

Trying to count punches etc. isn't how to score a fight. It's not an easy one to articulate but

It's weisfeld and lederman we're quoting here, saying it's predominantly about clean punches, and the qualitative element is about how good the punch was and what effect it had.

I don't endorse the Compubox concept because it quantitative not qualitative it gives an indication that's all. In some fights, like Ward kovalev when the kd round apart it was mainly jabs and a few body shots landed I think it's a reasonable guide. Besides we established that I maybe subconsciously add punches up as I scored it as if I'd used Compubox!

Ultimately for me, it's about punches landed with a quantitative and qualitative assessment of them. Aggression/defence/generalship are all things that dictate what punches land or don't.

I agree - it's quality rather than quantity. It's who had the better of the round (if that round was the entire fight).

Larry Merchant was a good judge - he new what he was watching. Big miss on the HBO shows (Kellerman gets increasingly worse - thankfully Lampley keeps him in check....just).

Why am I saying that if Malignaggi avoids getting caught with anything hurtful the entire fight he can win surely..

Even if Malignaggi gets caught by one or two hurtful punches he can still win if he shakes them off and his punchees cause more accumulative damage on he's opponent than those few single shots he's opponent inflicted on him

If he's punches don't cause as much damage then I guess he loses..

But I get milky's point maybe volume could outweigh quality in a very few instances if the volume is just ridiculously higher..

I think there should be only one formula..Who is the most effective boxer..

These 4 criterion for judges give corrupt and inept judges an out.....

Easy to say I marked him up for defence............Harder to explain why a guy who is being woefully outboxed is the most effective fighter..

Derby won't agree he sees decent amateur judging every week..............but for me it is the way to go.

Do you want some gloves to help with the digs ha ha ;-)

Amateur judging is horrendous and there's far far too much home time sway which destroys some of the young kids coming through the ranks (the amount that give it up after their 4th or 5th bad decision is staggering).

I agree with the 4 criteria but you also have to be effective with it all. As someone said you've got to mix your defense with attack (you can have the best defense in the world but if your not throwing at least some punches, then what's the point)

The 4 points are used to try and pick the most effective boxer but again it can come down to what you prefer and what you actually see. Clean punches should play a bigger part but with some of the faster boxers who's to say what is actually clean or not.

It's a really tough one and judging only really falls down when
1. it's someone really incompetent
2. it's a close fight but you don't agree with the judges

Boxing needs more clearly defined rules, that's for sure

Every single fans seems to interpret the rules differently

Gives the judges a way of swinging fights to fighters who don't deserve them

Fully agree with Truss

The boxing guidelines are basically nonsense

Loffler needs to give DeLa Hoya an ultimatum either we get a contract signed by the end of this week or we take the Saunders fight

If we take the Saunders we can still continue to negotiate and announce if very soon after GGG/Saunders

Canelo's having a fight he's equally putting the promotion in jeopardy how do we know he won't get cut against Chavez?

If Canelo's having a fight so can Golovkin
