First Amature fight with video
I'll try to give as much backdrop as possible to pre-answer some questions.
This was my first offical amature fight. 3 rounds/2 minutes each. 160-165lb. range.
I had an exhibition a month before, pretty intense on it's own.
Ive been training for a little over a year in Muay Thai now.
I'am the guy closer to the camera, black shorts with yellow trim.
The guy I fought was slightly older than me early 20's while I'm 18.
I won by points, 87 over 85.
I know my punches wer'nt up to par. I'd blame the gloves but everyone was at that disadvantage since they were all brand new and not broken in.
Many kudo's for getting in the ring and congrats for the win.
Personally I only scored you with winning the second round and the guy in blue shorts winning the first and second, luck was with you.

This forum is getting downright retarded.
I think you did good. Congratulations on the win. I am a ***** since I had jaw surgery I am afraid to get hit in the jaw now.
not sure what fight the judges were watching... grats though.
After watching the clips I was thinking roughly the same thing .But since I know jack **** about actually scoring matches or even the rule set of this match, and more importantly I haven't stepped into the ring to be qualified to give you any advice I will simply say ...

Yea, I was in shock when I won.
Judge 1 28 - 29
Judge 2 29 - 29
Judge 3 30 - 27
And no, I did not know any of the judges!
Judges see things differently from ringside as opposed watching a shitty ass youtube video. Nice work regardless. What was the organization that put this fight on and where was it at?
USMTA (United States Muay Thai Association) sanctioned the event.
This was right around me in Brighton Beach Brooklyn, New York.
Also the sponsor was my favorite beer, Baltika 9.
seemed like a fairly even match for ya. For your next fight i'd suggest working some drills on palmblock and counters, and drill alot of perry and counters. Eventually you'll get used to slipping more. But, it looked like a allright fight.
Congrats on your win and good job.
