  1. Mayweather defense is the greatest I ever seen. He clearly won the fight clearly. However is was a dull fight and I think there should be a rematch based on that fact alone!

    • I agree with the first part of your comment, but for the rematch, we have never seen that happen based on that “fact”. If it was boring once, it might be twice. Pacquiao didn’t do enough to “earn” a rematch.

      • Honestly, I can’t argue the point you made because it’s accurate and factual. Good stuff

          • Pac should find a wet paper bag… Really disappointed that he didn’t press more.

            Mayweather should go ahead and retire, no real competition out there, other fights would only be pay checks and may tarnish his legacy.

          • I think Brook vs Thurman should happen and winner get Mayweather in September. I think Pacquaio should face Khan, Mattyshe or Danny Garcia. I think Danny Garcia would be decent. It all depends on both fighters goals

          • Pacquiao should go down to 140, 147 & 154 is too much for him. I know he can beat mayweather in clear and fair fight but that’s impossible.

    • Mayweather did not win the fight. The compubox stats are wrong.. Pacquaio actually landed more than Mayweather..

  2. your stats make an interesting point, but who enters the data? How can anyone know that data from CompuBox is accurate?
    How much human error is there with CompuBox? And when did they stop giving points to the aggressor?
    Mayweather is the type of fighter I detest. I prefer fighters are who aren’t afraid of getting hit, and will give the crowd a good show. Mayweather fights seem more like a track meet.

    • I too question the CompuBox data. Does the pawing of Mayweather as a defence mechanism count as punches? Likewise clinching and then hitting whilst holding should not be tallied as scoring punches. Unfortunately there is an acceptance of whatever is spoken and/or written and not any decent analysis of what has been propagated.

      • These are interesting questions. I checked the official compubox website. Here’s what they say: “The operators are extensively trained to watch a fight differently than a normal fan would. Each operator concentrates on only one fighter and not the fight as a whole to accurately track the stats. (…) Even though our database of over 5,000 fights (and counting) shows that a fighter that throws and lands more punches will win 90% of the time, the 10 point judging system clearly is the only way to determine winners in a fight. (…) CompuBox operators consist of boxing historians and former professional fighters. They include Bob and Nic Canobbio, former UPI sports editor Joe Carnicelli, former pro fighter Dennis Allen, former pro fighter Saul Avelar, noted boxing writer, historian and HOF voting member Lee Groves, boxing historian and HOF voting member Aris Pina, boxing historian Ben Chan and boxing/MMA historian Andy Kasperzak. We were also privileged to employ a former world champion Genaro Hernandez, who passed away in 2011.”

        So it might not answer to your questions (or Leroy Hall’s), but it tells us how it works. For my part, I am very accustomed with statistics (it’s an important part of my job as a researcher in psychology). And now that I know how compubox works, it raises issues about the reliability of these statistics. The problem is that only one observer per fighter doesn’t grant us any estimation of the reliability of this statistics. When one wishes to assess the reliability of the observation of a particular behavior (in that case “throwing and landing punches”), it calls for “inter-rater reliability” estimation. So basicly, it requires at least two trained observers to assess the same behavior. Then we could calculate the ratio of agreement between them. The statistics is called Cohen’s kappa, or Fleiss’ kappa. Given that number, viewers (us) could assess how reliable or not the compubox stats are. It wouldn’t be perfect, but it would be better.
