What a joke those scorecards were. This was a really high quality close and competitive bout in reality. Postol fought surprisingly well boxing on the outside and was very tough even after he gassed. Taylor showed a lot of experience and mental toughness for someone with only 12 pro bouts. This shows the massive gulf between someone like Josh Taylor and Terence Crawford though in my opinion, I think the Super Lightweight division is relatively overrated right now outside of Regis Prograis. I think Taylor will beat Ramirez but I think Prograis will beat him if they end up fighting in time. I hope Postol keeps going, I definitely think he could beat someone like a Maurice Hooker or be a good gatekeeper slightly below title level.

I agree with the rounds on your card, 100%, Taylor long way behind after 8, rallied and just about swung it back in his favour in the late rounds.

Agree, ridiculous scoring!

Yes and no about Crawford and Taylor, will Taylor ever be as good as Crawford? I doubt it, is the gulf in class as big as the Postol comparison suggests? I don't think so, because Taylor is not quite at his best yet, Crawford was in his prime, had had double the fights Taylor has had whe he beat Postol, take into consideration how much this was the learning fight Taylor needed, and Crawford was more advanced when he beat Postol.
On the other hand, Crawford was not much older when he beat Postol, so maybe that just says something about how much more quickly Crawford's career progressed. Also, you could say that Crawford beat a younger, fresher, mkre consistent Postol, which is true, but I still think Taylor has potential which is better than what we saw against Postol, and to be honest, I think he underestimated him.
