  1. First of all…PBC… when a fight reaches the 12th round… and it is that close… I don’t want to see one of the fighter’s corner yelling at the crowd… All I want to see is the fight!! Actually, unless some crazy parachutist fan man tries to land on the ring, during the 3 minutes of a round, all I care about is the fight itself!!
    Second, Alan Davis (who gave it 117-109)… what were you looking at?! Third, that was quite a good fight! :)
    DeGale will never want a rematch, but I would love it.

    1. Well said. One of the most enjoyable fights in months, and very close. Alan Davis is blind — I gave it to DeGale by a point. Credit to Dirrell for some life-saving adjustments, coming back from a disastrous start.

  2. Good fight.
    8-4 on my card. (5,8,9,10 to Dirrel)
    DeGale needs to learn to throw a straight left after that right hook instead of a left hook.

    1. I respect your judging, but only 4 rounds to Dirrell? on my card, from the fifth round on, Dirrel wins everything except the 11th. But a lot of rounds were close. Thanks for sharing your judging, it’s always fun to compare :)

  3. I’ve had it a draw. (113-113) Nice fight, deGale seemed to think he was more in advance than he was. He really didn’t do much after the fourth.

  4. I’m a bit surprised by the 3-stars rating for this one. To me it’s more like a 4 and a half stars! It’s probably one of the best fight so far this year in my opinion.
