Very good technical fight with high intensity! Excellent match-up between two very talented WW. Amazing 9th round! Most rounds were very close and so, hard to score. Here’s my scorecard:
P: 9–10–10–9–9–10–9–10–9–9–10–9 | 113
D:10–9—-9-10-10–9–10–9–10-10–9-10 | 115
To me, 117-111 is totally foul ball. But anyway, Diaz really made a name for himself with this fight and will surely get a shot in a title bout soon enough.
I didn’t score this fight, but for me it was a draw. I didn’t know Diaz before and he is a really strong and interesting boxer, i hope he will have a new chance or a rematch
Man I still cannot believe the result since Diaz out-boxed Lamont most of the time.
Did you score the fight?
same as you
Olivier, the only difference between my scorecard and yours is RND 1. I watched that round again, changed my mind on the second viewing, and gave it to Peterson for landing the bigger blows. But just barely.
Impressive speed and footwork by Diaz, especially off the ropes. Within a few rounds, he had Peterson’s timing really screwed up — Lamont began to like one of Mayweather’s victims, uncertain and hesitant.
I have to admit I only watched the fight once, but still we all have similar scorecards in the end. I like your analysis of Diaz. It’s true that he works very well from anywhere in the ring and he can throw counter attacks and create angles even with the back against the ropes. He’s very creative. I thought he was like a better version of Gamboa.
WTF is up with the beard.
And who is Diaz promoter…
And Peterson using the PEDs again?
Annoying result, Diaz was robbed by two blind judges, shame to both of them with should be evicted right away from such position. I have Diaz winning for 115-113.
This is the kind of results that bother me a lot.
Diaz is a very talented boxer, with quick reaction, and excellent moves in the ring.
Lamont should be thinking in retirement.
The first necessary thing required for a commentator is that they have two eyes and not be as one eyed as these were. A referee and the judges require licences so should commentators. Having said this I believe Peterson won. A lot of the flashy work by Diaz only hit the arms and gloves of Peterson and thus were not scoring shots. But it did not prevent the commentators from getting excited about great shots they were. Volume of punches does not always mean scoring punches and too many people go for the action rather than actual scoring shots. Well done judges.
IF he won should be for no more than 1 point on each of those two blind other judges cards. But this not the case since one of the judges see the fight as a draw. Unfortunately, this kind of results are talking very bad about this sport and how a local guy is benefited.
So please don’t be blind or partial too.
On the other hand, and going back to your comments, some judges has just license “TO KILL” like JB
had Peterson by 2 rounds
Good, close fight. I like Peterson, but unlike the generous hometown judges I had it a draw. Diaz is someone to watch.
