Hardest to score fights

What fights stand out to you that were very difficult to score? Many close rounds that could be scored even or to either guy? Or fights where one guy lands more punches and the other the cleaner shots? Or fights where one guy is working the body and the other up high both fairly even?

I have noticed that in most fights that people call robbery there are usually 4-8 rounds that are swing rounds that can go either way?

Pedroza vs Lockridge I
Antuofermo vs Minter I
Antuofermo vs Hagler I

Are a couple of recently scored ones that stand out to me...maybe Floyd vs Castillo I as well

Re: Hardest to score fights

Canelo vs GGG :-D

Re: Hardest to score fights

Whitaker vs. De La Hoya

Re: Hardest to score fights

Mayweather vs Castillo

Re: Hardest to score fights

Off the top of my head:

James Toney - Vassiliy Jirov
James Toney - Michael Nunn
GGG - Daniel Jacobs
Tevin Farmer - Kenichi Ogawa

Re: Hardest to score fights

Good picks. Although I didn’t think Toney vs Nunn was a hard one...and the ending makes it irrelevant either way

Re: Hardest to score fights

Tevin Farmer's last fight against Jono Carroll was tough to score as well. Carroll through an insane amount of punches but they were so obviously nothing. He could've peppered Farmer till the cows came home and still wouldnt have hurt him.

Re: Hardest to score fights

You had h.fury beating pulev? I thought pulev decisively beat him on the cards

Re: Hardest to score fights

I think otherwise. I would accept a draw, and I would consider a 115-113 card in favour of Pulev generous but acceptable. 116-112 to Pulev I would consider a ridiculous score.

Re: Hardest to score fights

Fury vs Pulev, Frampton vs Warrington and Carrol vs Farmer all had decisive winners. These fights were competitive, but not that hard to score, and the winners were obvious (to me at least)

Re: Hardest to score fights

I think otherwise.

Re: Hardest to score fights

James Toney's style is always hard to score.
I also thought Marquez won all four fights. 2 & 3 were hard to score.

Re: Hardest to score fights

Agree with both of these. Toney vs Nunn, Tiberi, McCallum all stand out with tough rounds...same for JMM vs Pac I think I had JMM 3-0-1 in that series

Re: Hardest to score fights

Hagler-Leonard, Ali-Frazier 2 and Ali-Norton 3.

Re: Hardest to score fights

Hagler-Leonard

Re: Hardest to score fights

Angel Manfredy - Ivan Robinson

Particularly round 2 & round 6. I actually went back & watched both of these rounds over again several times because, imho, they were that close.

Re: Hardest to score fights

People say Hagler vs. Leonard but is that really a hard fight to score? I suppose it depends on your definition, but it isn't a fight with a lot of swing rounds that are difficult to score. Ray Leonard won 1-4 and 6 clearly in my opinion while Hagler won 5 and 7-10 clearly which leaves only two swing rounds to decide the fight 115-113 either way or a draw. Either way, it is definitely the most ridiculous fight that people claim is a robbery. Like some people here have talked about, it would be a great service to boxing if everyone marked swing rounds. If someone doesn't win 7 rounds clearly they are leaving it in the judges hands as with Oscar vs. Tito

Re: Hardest to score fights

Can any moderator just delete this thread that these 2 guys have ruined? This is like a middle school forum....it’s no wonder so few people post here in this toxic environment...oh well I am just liable to post my cards here and avoid this section in the future. A shame because this place has a ton of potential

Re: Hardest to score fights

I can delete it now, my apologies for my part in this, but this website has gone downhill since Gold came along.

Re: Hardest to score fights

Back at it again commenting on my cards and deleting them to make yourself look like the victim.

"I'm very angry, the BS that has come from you today is disgusting, Crolla
saved his neighbour's lives, and you talk shit and imply he was stupid to do
it, disgusting. You are a pussy and a coward."

Completely unnecessary.

Re: Hardest to score fights

I spoke the truth. Clear off.
