    Yeah, it used to be scored that way - three judges had to click the blue or red button within some fraction of a second of each other for the punch to score.

    Now there are five judges, and the highest and lowest scores are dropped at the end of each round, then an average is calculated from the remaining three judges' scores. The BBC had some silly article suggesting that the change in the scoring system means the level of transparency has dropped, despite the fact that the new system is designed to weed out potentially biased judges and that instantaneous display of scoring is impossible with the new system.

    Pajkic-Pikey and well, Pikey :-)

    Awful boxing weekend, the joke that was the Pacman decision, saving Fury. Nonsensical all of it.

    Big loss for Amir Khan this morning, thoroughly deserved as his cheating ways finally caught up with him. I hope he'll emerge a better fighter for it and stop this nasty crap like leading with the head and leaning on opponents necks. He's gotten away with it in the UK even as an amateur. Very good fight and the undercard was good, Timur Ibragimov looks washed up and (have to check) Roy Jones fought again and beat some punch bag for a title of sorts.

    You'd have to imagine Haye will win handy if he boxes clever.

    That's one thing I enjoy about it. If you think about it in the right way, it's two horrible people being punched, and it doesn't really matter who gets punched more!

    Andre Ward, Marquez, Wlad, Vitali & Pacquiao.

    Not all boxers are like Broner and Mayweather.

    I don't mind Tyson Fury, he sells tickets and can be funny at times. David Haye on the other hand is a **** and I hope he gets sparked out in September.

    Andy Lee! What a man! Fully deserved his win against a really good fighter. Great boxing night, Amir Khan did a good job, Tim Bradley was gifted a draw, and an Irish american lad continued to climb the rankings (Sean Monaghan).

    Was a real fight, like his last one. His opponent was (on paper) better, but Andy went for it. Disgraceful lack of coverage from the Irish meeja, not a surprise, but shameful.

    I wouldn't say Korobov was better on paper. I'd have had Lee as slight favourite, whatever the bookies thought.

    Charlie, I'd have been more impressed by the Russian's punch power and ability to take a dig than Andy's, plus he was fresher. But I agree it was closer than the predictions. I watched on Russian TV and they were backing their boy, but said it would be a late round stoppage. They kept quoting the loss against Chavez Jr, which they also broadcast at the time. I would have discounted that as the allegations made by Andy stacked up and the energy levels of Chavez were unreal. He's 6 in the world and a winnable defence against Martinez would be great, or...if Murray beats Golovkin!!!

    Very strange the lack of coverage of this. If was it Bernard bleeding Dunne it would have been wall to wall.

    Spud - you might know this but has an Irishman ever won a world title in Vegas before ? I think I heard before the fight that the last 11 irish world title bids were defeated on US soil- this was 12th time lucky.

    Think Billy Joe Saunders is the No. 1 contender for the WBO - hope Lee milks it for every penny he can get! - the 3 arena or maybe even Thomond or Gaelic Pk in the summer.
    If a dog weighs under 50 lbs it's a cat, and cats are useless.

    I think it is more to do with broadcast and the chance of winning, but overall I think being based in the UK/US goes against him, plus his background and Limerick. Sad thing is he will be lauded when he's gone.

    I know that in my life I don't remember an Irish fighter winning a world title fight in Laz Vegas, going back to Barry McGuigan, last I remember was Wayne McCullough a few years back. Amazing statistic!

    Neither McGuigan nor McCullough ever won a title fight there. They both lost fights there.

    That's incredible actually - how far back do we have to go to find one?
