    For me this is the issue with fight scoring at this point in time. There is no consistent understand of what the rules are. Some just focus on effective punching, others heavily value defense, others factor in all 4 criteria.

    From everything that I can see, all 4 criteria are equal, because nowhere does it specifically list clean effective punching being the most important.

    Harold Lederman often states that clean punching is given the highest precedence. There's a good video with him explaining it.

    It IS simple. Who did the most damage in the round? Who landed the most effective punches? Volume shouldn't come into it unless the gap is so huge it's clear.

    I know the video your talking about, but even in that he basically says he is ignoring the actual written rules to score a fight that way. What stood out for me in that video is when he talked about defence he talked about blocking punches and not slipping.....but maybe he just missed it.

    It is totally subject but especially in the states there is some unwritten rules if you will like:

    no even round cards

    some wont go past 10-7 even if enough knockdowns due to making too much of a gap

    and a few others

    It seems vague but IMO he probably means not make it too complicated for yourself. A real judge has to look at all 4 criteria but to the layman, the harder cleaner damaging shots has much of the criteria covered. Basically use common sense and don't over complicate it.

    In general, superior athletes possess average and above average l.Q.’s. For example, in a recent study of the intelligence levels of elite athletes in Europe, their average l.Q. was found to be 112 (S.D. 9.0). In similar studies conducted in America, the l.Q. of superior athletes ranged on average from 96 to 107.

    [h=2]HOW TO WRAP HANDS FOR A BOXING WORKOUT[/h]
    All boxers on a compulsory note wrap their hands with hand wraps, in order to protect their fingers, wrists and knuckles. Hands are the first part of the body to encounter contact with the opponent and this means your hand muscles and wrists are put to work immediately. It is important that your fingers and knuckles are in good condition throughout the match.

    Great thread. Scoring the fights myself has always been a passion of mine and some of the questions here I've wondered about, but never discussed.

    I will also add that I'm involved in this site Eye On The Ring that is exclusively for fan cards. If you're following this thread, it might be of interest. If you keep a notebook of cards, it's a nice to have an online option.

    The site is still mostly unknown. So we're looking for more fans to try it out and post about it on their blogs or Facebook.

    Wow great post. I looked at that website and I'm kind of excited about it to be honest. I'll be spending some time there in the future.

    Nice. The site really appeals to a lot of fans. Those who find it that is - we are still mostly unknown.
