Yeah I had two swing rounds too and thought it only best to give one to each of them. Boxing is scored round by round, it's not a summary of what you remember from the fight most.

Sorry I meant to say: "What you smoking Muppet". lol
Don't smoke green no more, but I must confess I vape thc and still get damn pretty high, combined with vodka I might not be the best judge but hey, it was still 8-4 usyk

Then you are another who can't score rounds. Anyone scoring 8-4 or 8-3 must have a crack inhaler mask attached to their face during that fight. Never mind smoking the fucking stuff. Haha.

What did you score it?

I love it when people with just a casual interest in the sport try and tell me about boxing.
I'm the very definition of someone who has nothing more than a casual interest in boxing at best, I hold my hands up to that, I'd have no ability to accurately score a fight but I don't need to have any more knowledge to see with my eyes Usyk dominated him and won as comfortably as city dominated chelsea today and took a narrow 1-0 win comfortably. Scorecards might have been close but there was nothing close about that fight.

Nah, you scored it fine, I can see that, you at least highlighted the swing rounds. I couldn't give it 6-6 but I couldn't argue too hard with it, if anyone did score it that way(I thought the judges might do that). Certainly nobody can be surprised at anyone scoring it 7-5 if they know what they are talking about though. Which was my main point.

Well that's a different argument though. I agree the rounds AJ won were not as dominant as the ones Usyk won and Usyk finished the fight much stronger. That's not how to score a fight though. I didn't actually get to see AJ on the ropes in that last round in real time but from the replays, he looked to be spent, while slipping and riding with most of those. Didn't look good though.

Joshua absolutely bang average, lovely to see him shown up.

Got where he is on a mixture of managing who he faces and hyped up marketing.

Usyk and Fury in a different galaxy to him technically, reckon Wilder would KO him too.

LOL

That's just like the empty seats and City are owned by a state mantra. Doesn't stand up to the facts. Not as good as Usyk doesn't = bang average.

He got to where he was by taking risks early to fight the best and learn on the job. There has been no "managing who he faces", if you knew what mandataries are, or who the people are on his resume and how Fury's and especially Wilder's resume pales in comparison, you wouldn't be making that mistake.

Joshua didn't get up off the ropes until the result was read out... Man's not got the engine to try and be outboxing someone like Usyk.

Bollocks, aj has always fought the best available, can't take that away from him, he has by far the best resume amongst his peers, beaten by the better man tonight which gets huge respect from me because his peers wouldn't have dared take on such a dangerous fight

a blown up cruiser with average KO record would scare Fury but he’s fighting the biggest hitting heavyweight for a 3rd time in a couple of weeks ?

you sure about that ?
