Adamek vs Cunningham II was a RAZOR CLOSE drawish kind of fight.
I just finished watching Adamek vs Cunningham II, cause I didn't have time yesterday. But I checked boxingscene yesterday and saw how everybody said it was a clear robbery and at least a 8 rounds to 4 victory for Cunningham.
Now after scoring the fight, I have to strongly disagree with the opinion of most pple here. Because the fight was RAZOR CLOSE from start to finish and I scored it for Cunningham by only 1 point and I can see a draw as well.
I gave Adamek rounds 5,6,8 and 9
I gave Cunningham rounds 2,3,4,10 and 12
I scored rounds 1,7 and 11 a draw.
I agree though that the fact that Michael Buffer announced the fight as a draw at first and then changed it to an Adamek win was very shady to say the least.
That being said, it was a very close fight and Cunningham might have edged it. And I remember one thing during watching the NBC broadcast: at the beginning of the 12th round commentator Freddie Roach said he has it dead even and that the winner of this (last) round wins the fight. I looked on my scorecard and I had it exactly the same: 4 rounds each with 3 rounds even and then I felt Cunningham edged the last round.
So no way was it a "robbery" or "at least a 8 rounds to 4" win for Cunningham.
