Default What's your opinion on people that use compubox to score rounds?

I'm shocked that posters like Curtis Harper and HeadShots use Compubox to score fights. Compubox numbers are always inaccurate. The PBC fights that have a running counter in the corner really expose how BS they are.

They can provide a nice resource if they jive with you personally see...it's just 2 dudes counting though so sometimes I think compubox gets it wrong...Pac-Horn a good example for me...you should more or less be keeping track of the punches in your head imo...if you are going to really have an opinion on who won a round/fight anyway

It's a **** way of scoring fights, but nonetheless a large majority of the time the dude with the numbers on their side is also the guy who most people thought won the round if that makes sense. So even if it's not a good way of actually scoring it is one way of bolstering your case for particular scores.

I generally don't even bother scoring any more, cos, well, what's the point? You got the judges scores and your own idea of who won the fight but beyond that your never gonna convince someone that they should believe your score over what they saw themselves. Subjectivity see, and bias - never forget we're all biased to one degree or another and the more we're invested in an outcome the less our scoring can be trusted.

That said if you are dumb enough to get into those to and fros about how rounds should be scored I'd say having the weight of the numbers on your side rather than against you is definitely a point in your favour just on the grounds of probability.

We are all compuboxes. We watch a fight and score who lands the most punches.

Or am I missing something ?

Yes indeedy. At least that should be how we score a fight, obviously how hurtful the punches are comes into play as well - and that's where it gets really subjective, but stripped to it's basics that should be the only thing that matters.


Which guy landed the most leather and hurt on the other? Everything else... IQ, footwork, accuracy, workrate are merely means to that end.

The retired professional boxing judge turned NSB thread starter summed up his own thread....

''What is your OPINION (blahblahblah)..........''

He should come out of retirement. Boxing needs his insight now more than ever.

It can be a helpful tool for interpreting a fight, perhaps in the case of rounds that are too close to split otherwise. I agree though that it's stupid to use it as the sole barometer for scoring fights. I'm also sceptical about how accurate the counts are because those are still subject to human error and of course there's a lot that the raw punch numbers just can't tell you, boxing isn't just a numbers game.
