Examining The Broner-Maidana Scorecards

by David P. Greisman

Marcos Maidana scored two knockdowns and won a clear decision over Adrien Broner on all three judges’ scorecards.

Judge Levi Martinez had Maidana winning 117-109, giving him 10 of the 12 rounds. The only rounds he gave to Broner were Round 5 and Round 12.

Interestingly, Martinez was the only judge to score the eighth round an even 9-9. That was the round in which Maidana knocked Broner down, but later had a point taken away due to an intentional head butt. The other two judges scored that round 9-8 for Maidana.

Nelson Vazquez had it 116-109, giving Maidana nine rounds. He gave Broner rounds 4, 7 and 11.

And Stanley Christoudolou had it 115-110, giving Maidana eight rounds. He gave Broner rounds 4, 6, 11 and 12.

Broner never got a round unanimously. Two judges gave him Round 4. One judge gave him Round 5. One judge gave him round 6. One judge gave him round 7. Two judges gave him round 11. And two judges gave him round 12.

That means Broner won at least one scorecard in six of the 12 rounds. Then again, Maidana won at least one scorecard in all 12 rounds.

If a score was taken from “majority rules,” Maidana would’ve won nine rounds and Broner would’ve won three rounds, and the final card would’ve been the 116-109 that Vazquez turned in.

Here is my scorecard. [IMG]http://www.fightjudge.com/user/Pimpgoz/1111/scorecard.png[/IMG] RD 9 didn't have a point deduction or a knockdown but it was just so 1 sided that you could argue a 10-8 rd because Broner didn't punch really at all and he did a…

levi martinez is an average judge, very over rated...the round should have been 9-8...10-8 for the knockdown & minus the point for MM, as he won the round...the round was NOT even, MM won the round...pull your head out &…
