Whitaker-DLH is much more arguable than this, IIRC. Haven't watched the fight in a while.



This was a blatant victory that was turned into a draw. JCC got undressed and his cherry popped by Pete. Sounds awful to say of a fighter of JCC's caliber, but it happened.

So although you can say it was 8-4 in terms of rounds, it seemed more one sided than a lot of other 8-4 type decisions because the rounds Chavez won were closer.
Exactly. Two out of the three rounds I gave JCC were arguable.


A couple were more emphatic than the rest, but Pea's rounds overall were much clearer. I don't know where the OP gets all those debatable rounds from if you're going by any correct scoring criteria.




On that note, I'm off back to sleep.

yes, Whitaker obviously deserved to win. lets get that out of the way. but if you havent seen a worse robbery before, than you havent watched much boxing. quite honestly, you could make a case for Chavez winning rounds 1,2,5,6,9, and 12. now, to give him all these rounds is really questionable, to say the least...I ended up giving him rounds 1,2,9 and 12, with round 6 being even(or 116-113 Whitaker)...having rewatched the fight last night. It was pretty much the same score as the last time I watched it.

in no way was Chavez schooled. rounds 7 and 8? ok yea, those were incredible rounds for Whitaker, and really show off how skilled he was. but those two rounds werent the whole fight. Pavlik-Hopkins was 'getting schooled', Chavez vs. Whitaker was nothing like that.

I know the horrible judging turns people off when it comes to this fight and makes people hostile toward Chavez, but honestly, this was a very entertaining fight with lots of competitive rounds. and Chavez probebly did better than anyone else did in Whitaker's career up to that point and up until the 1st Rivera fight years later, although you could make a case for Buddy McGirt...and maybe actually Paez.
its a real good fight with tons of skill and is actually foul-filled too...I recommend it to people that havent seen it before.
Chavez got schooled...yes he did...
