great fight!

dizzy's picture

While I don't remember the fight round-by-round, I certainly remember Ibragimov outboxing Austin and landing more significant shots for most of the rounds. I was suprised by the scorecards, as well as ESPN's punch stats and Teddy Atlas' seemingly biased commentary (or maybe I missed some sneaky counter shots landed by Austin). At the end, I had Ibragimov winning 116-111. Nonetheless, I applaud Austin for putting up the best performance of his career and even dropping Ibragimov, who was viewed by many as the favorite coming into the fight.

EDIT: After re-watching the fight, I stand corrected on everything I've written before. ESPN's commentary team devoted all their attention to Austin and barely acknowledged anything Ibragimov did. Even the 10-8 round for Austin could be scored 10-9 as Ibragimov was clearly doing the better work in that round prior to knockdown. I still give Austin credit for putting up the best performance of his career, trying to use every trick in the book to outsmart his faster, more skilled, intelligent and polished fighter, but he was outboxed for the majority of the fight and in order to give him even a draw, you'd have to give him every close and competitive round.
