  1. Very good fight! Another tough one to score also… I thought Harold sounded a bit drunk and may have been scoring under the influence of… but anyway I felt the decision was right. After he suffered a KD, Campbell was given a salvatory advice by his corner, that was not to wait on Linares, be first, and that kept him into this fight. From then on, Campbell showed great resilience and maturity. By the way, that KD was so amazing. If I remember correctly, it was a 3 punches combination: first shot was a straight right hand upstairs on Campbell’s gloves that Linares kinda hold back, that brought Campbell’s guard up, then the left hook downstairs coming across on Campbell’s elbows opening up his guard, then right when Campbell was going to reatliate, boom! perfect counter right hand. Seemed like after that Linares cruised on this KD while Campbell was becoming more and more able to score punches.

  2. Pretty good fight, Campbell did very well in the second half as Linares seemed to slow down for most of the middle rounds. It always seemed that Linares had another gear but just never went into it.

    The knockdown, in retaliation to a punch by Campbell was absolutely the stuff of a boxing masterclass.

    Mikey Garcia beats last nights version of Linares if they fight down the road.

  3. Very good boxing match. Nice clean fight with hardly any grappling at all. linares deserved to win but Campbell was very good aswell.

  4. You have strange definitions and it seems like you’re trying to objectify things a certain way, but I see them a bit differently.

    Ring generalship:
    According to the 1929 Rules of the New York State Athletic Commission (…) comprised “such points as the ability to quickly grasp and take advantage of every opportunity offered, the capacity to cope with all kinds of situations which may arise; to foresee and neutralize an opponent’s method of attack; to force an opponent to adopt a style of boxing at which he is not particularly skillful”. It like this definition better. As much as a fighter can complain for example that his opponent ran away for a whole fight, what I’m also hearing is that this fighter who’s complaining wasn’t able to cut the ring effectively.

    Effective aggressiveness: Imagine Fighter A trying to press the action with 3 jabs in a row, Fighter B takes 2 of them on the jaw, doesn’t seem to be hurt, doesn’t back up and retalitates with a right hook that backs Fighter A who’s visibly shaken. Who’s the effective aggressor then? So, to me, it can’t just be seens as the fighter coming foward, pressing the action, he’s got to be “effective” doing so. I’ve read an article in which Steve Weisfeld suggested that effective aggressiveness should be the last aspect of round to be assessed to break a close round. This is probably what many judges are doing also whether we like it or not, since most of the close rounds tend to go for the fighter pressing the action.

    Clean punches
    I believe and it should be evaluated as the landed/thrown %, that can be weighted by the power in those shots. It’s mainly a matter of output and the impression you get on who is hurting whom the most. I disagree with you, I think punching power should be considered here. As I said in a previous post, it’s hard to compare what’s better: 6 jabs, 3 check hooks, 2 uppercuts? But again, the question is who is hurting whom the most? This is pro boxing, not amateur.

    About a 10-6 or 10-7 round, Pacquiao-Marquez I – Round 1. Two judges scored it correctly 10-6 and the other judge had it 10-7.
