great fight!

dizzy's picture

While I don't remember the fight round-by-round, I certainly remember Ibragimov outboxing and outpunching Austin 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 a favorite.

EDIT: After re-watching the fight, I stand corrected. ESPN's commentary team was constantly talking about Austin and was barely acknowledging 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.
