    Are the judges watching a different boxing match on their monitors? :ugh:
    they give points when nobody gets hit, when nobody even throws a punch. They'll give a point to the guy WHO GETS HIT, a guy slipped and he got a point.

    Yet I just saw a clean uppercut and left hook land on the button and no points were awarded.

    This is retarded.

    have you watched the boxing?

    Someone will get a clean shot to the face and it wont count. But a glancing blow off the shoulder will count. Some body shots will count, and others, exactly the same or better will not. They will not even be engaging each other and someone will score a point, it's fucking ridiculous.

    having watched a lot of this olympic boxing all of the criticism that Teddy Atlas have given as well as everbody else...its all deserved, nothing has been as bad as the Roy Jones jr fight but their has been some BS decesions and probably a 1000 no points that should have been

    I think they explained the scoring that there are 5 judges and 3 have to hit a button all within 1 second of each other for a fighter to get a point. Worst scoring system ever.

    They had a different scoring system back then, it was his fight that made them change the scoring system.

    he beat the crap out of the Koran fighter, then somehow the judges gave the decesion to the Korean, the ref was disgusted, the korean fighter was even ashamed.

    agreed it makes me sick, its better just to go to the pro format so at least you dont have boxers running and holding when they see they have a huge lead
