you have to remember that these are mostly just kids. amateur boxing is expressly designed to be less violent than the pros (w/ the headguards and point-scoring style & c.) so as to (a) reduce the lasting damage sustained by the fighters, (b) permit them to fight more frequently and accrue experience, and (c) let them build a solid technical foundation. these fighters are works in progress -- the last thing they need is every fight becoming a life-and-death battle like in the pros.

They may do better in the pros now but remember kiddos all that just proves it more that boxing is getting more better on the global scale in the future.

its not so much the scoring system as the fact that american boxing simply isnt as good as it used to be. most americans lack in fundamentals which gets exposed more easily in the ams than the pros.

look at warren, the kid was just plain sloppy in there. stepping back in straight lines with his hands at his waist and whatnot, giving up all sorts of free shots. when you only got 9min and the fight is scored blow for blow you cant get away with giving away nearly half a dozen points like that.

errol spence looked very good to me though, a bit raw in some ways but very good overall. pity he got robbed.

You're definitely mad my man.

You wanna know what's wrong with American amateur boxing? 3 time olympian and never won a fight, if I heard Teddy right.

During Olympic coverage, Oscar De La Hoya "tweeted" that he was going to request that he, "Sugar" Ray Leonard and Mark Breland be allowed to coach the U.S. Olympic team. I don't know how much good that would do. The scoring seems to be the problem, not the coaching.

Idk man, some of these Americans seemed to fight to tentative or passive from the second round on. Warren is a perfect example from today. I forgot who the other guy was, he just pretty much got bullied in the 3rd round and lost.
