  1. Again, shady scorecards from the judges. I can think why someone would score it 115-113 in favor of Rungvisai, some rounds could have gone either way. But 117-111 doesn’t make sense at all tbh. I had it 115-113 for Estrada, what do others think?

    1. I had it the same as you, and I also believe it could have went either way, but that 117-111 card was ludicrous.

    2. Only watched the fight once, I had it a draw 114-114.
      Looking at the compubox stats, you can see that overall, Sor Rungvisai landed only 5 more punches than Estrada (194 vs 189) but since Estrada used the jab more, the % of powerpunches Rungvisai landed was significantly superior (33% vs 24%). So, it seems the stats make sense with the judges’ scorecards. But looking at the stats round by round, it’s very hard to score. Good news is we might get a rematch and I believe no one will complain about that!

      1. Olivier: The stats didn’t make much sense with the final result since Estrada connected his power punches at a rate superior (33% ) than the one reached by Rungvisai. Agree that Rungvisai thrown and landed more but with low accuracy (24%). In terms of throwing punches, Estrada was not as active as Rungvisai and may be this is the cause he lost the fight as per the judges score cards. Undoubtedly, he is much better technical boxer than Rungvisai.

        1. Yeah, my mistake. I said the % of powerpunches Rungvisai landed was significantly superior (33% vs 24%), but it’s Estrada who connected at a higher %. But still, if you look at the total powerpunches landed, Rungvisai landed nearly 40 more. My point is: close fight even when you look at the stats. Stats don’t tell the whole story anyway. Imagine a round in which Tango landed 1 out of 2 punches (50%) while his opponent Olivier landed 10 out of 100 punches (10%). Who would you give the round to?

          1. The fight was beautiful, but it was very hard to score. While I can see a case for either man winning, it felt like a draw would be the fairest result.

            As you say, we’ll just have to have a rematch!

  2. Nice fight but with one terrible score card (117-111). This judge was evidently blind (or biased). He doesn’t deserves this position and corresponding responsibility because he is irresponsible Period. The fight was much more closer and may be the proper card was the one with the draw. Estrada did quite well but may be, he didn’t show enough active for the taste of participant judges. It was really though for him since Rungvisai, a beast for this category, has the full package. Bigger in size, very strong puncher, and a gifted southpaw. However, his fighting boxing skills are second to Estrada.

  3. Very good fight between two high class operators…I think I am in the minority here as I had Estrada winning the fight by a point or two. Still very good fight.
