  1. This was bs at its finest flores landed more punches the bigger punches also shunenov didnt even engage dont know what ring generalship is sugar ray was saying i call it mayweathering a fight i think flores was robbed

    1. The only BS in this fight was the compubox stats. Wkilst Flores landed a goodly few, Shumunov either blocked of slipped many of the the punches thrown. It certainly wasn’t Mayweathering as Shumenov hardly clinched and never held for more than a second or two. Unlike Mayweather a fine example of defensive boxing.

  2. Rd 1 – Shum won most of the round but evened it due to the bigger shots landed by Flores at the end.
    Rd 2 – Flores easy. Also wasn’t rabbiting. LOL
    Rd 3 – Shum – easy controlled entire round.
    Rd 4 – Shum – Flores was missing the few he was throwing.
    Rd 5 – Flores – Shum tried to go upstairs but Flores blocking and countering.
    Rd 6 – Flores – good left hooks and jabs. Shum only had 1 get punch 30 for end – body shot.
    Rd 7 – Flores – easy to score.
    Rd 8 – Shum – Flores landed a few good jabs but Shu landed better and more shots.
    Rd 9 – Flores – Shu was trying but was missing and being countered pretty much entire round.
    Rd 10 – Shum – outworking Flores again.
    Rd 11 – worst round of the fight. Shu controlled first 1.5 minutes. Then nothing then Flores controlled remain. Even

    Rd 12- Flores – ONLY due to last 15 seconds. Shu did land more but got a bit ran (only second time in fight I would say he was running – to kill time)

    So I technically I had it Flores by 1.
    6-5-1

    Dont think those punch stats are correct.
    Seem WAY off as I saw Shum landing allot more.

    1. Disappointing. That was a close fight and pretty tough to score though. But overall, Flores was unable to cut the ring effectively because he kept on stalking the faster Shumenov without using his jab. Flores was only trying to counter with the big right hand all fight long, but his timing wasn’t quite right and he couldn’t find the correct range. Shumenov was much more active but very imprecise. I didn’t score the fight, but the decision seemed fair to me. For example, unlike you, I would give Shumenov the 1st round because I thought he controlled the action, landed more shots and one counter by Flores is not enough for him to steal this one.
      I felt the compubox stats were totally wrong, especially regarding Flores number of punches thrown. But I re-watched closely what I thought was his best round (7th), and according to me, he landed 10 out of 37 punches thrown (27%). If you multiply this by 12, you get 120/444 for the whole fight. So based on that sample, the compubox would appear to be correct, at least for Flores, but again, that was his best round. Looking at one of Shumenov’s best rounds (3rd), I had him landing 12 out of 42 (28% – 144/504 estimation for the whole fight). So, my conclusion: this fight was so boring that I didn’t realize that many shots were thrown! No but seriously, my numbers reflect what would be the “best case scenario”, so the compubox might be correct overall in the end since some rounds (like the 11th) were very quiet.

        1. Thanks! I’m already working on the prologue of my next philosophical essay “Mayweather-Berto: Are you kidding me?”.

          1. I’ll sure chip in to that essay if you want, but I’m not gonna be nice! (To Mayweather)
