AN OBJECTIVE VIEW ON OPEN SCORING (Jake Donovan)
Word came down from the WBC convention Tuesday afternoon that a new wrinkle will be added to scoring WBC-sanctioned prize fights. Itís actually a recycled idea, though with a new twist
I actually like this idea. I don't know if it will change how the fight looks but it I think it will help the fighter adjust his fight plan. I really wish there was a more objective way of judging fights to begin with, the whole amateur point for punch system sucks and the pro judging is way to subjective. I think that this will at least let the fighters get some insight into what the judges are looking for.
