    1. Being robbed implies something being taken away. It was close but this fight wasn’t taken from Mares.What’s crazy is how being biased can so easily change peoples perspective. And for the record I wanted Mares to win

  1. 115-113 was about right, I can even see it going 116-112, but 117-111 was crazy. I think that the mistake done by Robert Garcia was that by the 7th round you can tell that Mares was being outboxed on the outside, he waited until the 10 round to change things up and have Mares fight on the inside, have that been done sooner, Mares could of pulled this off.

    1. You can see it 116- 112 but 117- 111 so just one more rd for Santa Cruz is crazy. I had Cruz edging him out but thought your commentwas funny so I had to reply

      1. 117-111 leans more towards a blowout which this fight clearly was not, than saying “uhmmm I’m not 100% sold on the decision, but can live with 116-112”. Nothing funny about that, just speaking out loud trying to wrap my head around this crazy scoring in boxing.

  2. Wow this fight was extremely difficult to score because of how close many rounds were. It was all about paying close attention and figuring out who got the edge. I had it 116-112 for Santa Cruz but was very tempted to score it 115-113. I’d love to see the third, both have been terrific.

    1. Compubox stats are clear though: Santa Cruz won by a wide margin, round after round. But sometimes in the heat of the fight, it’s hard to tell who’s connecting and who’s missing. Thank God we have slow motion replays ;)

  3. I guess 116 -112 does have a sense of being a more competitive fight, and 117 -111 more one sided. Ill admit I was wrong my bad
