Default CompuBox: "DON'T Rely On Us To Pick The Winner [of Pacquiao/Horn]"

The CompuBOX stats in no way, shape or form, determine a winner of a fight,” CompuBox said.

“The stats are used to enhance a telecast, show the estimated barometer of activity by both fighters and paint a picture of the activity on a round-by-round basis.

“Even though our database of over 7000 fights (and counting) shows that a fighter that throws and lands more punches will win 90 per cent of the time, the 10-point judging system clearly is the only way to determine winners in a fight.”

To the casual observer, this may seem like a subtle way of asking the world to stop using the numbers alone to push Pacquiao’s case. It doesn’t mean people who believe Pacquiao deserved to win are wrong, it just means you need to look beyond the numbers to arrive at that verdict.
...
Tim Dahlberg of Associated Press said Pacquiao should realise he didn’t do enough to take the fight out of the judges’ hands because bigger and better things were expected of him.

“It was Pacquiao who allowed the fight to be as close as it was, and it’s hard to argue much (though those blabbering on ESPN certainly did) with the two judges who had it 115-113 in Horn’s favour,” he wrote.

“Besides, Pacquiao knew going in what was expected of him. He needed to dominate and he didn’t, outside of a ninth round where he tried his best to take Horn out only to punch himself out and leave the final rounds in Horn’s hands.
...
“Horn was all over Pacquiao in the opening round. The Filipino legend merely had a look in what amounted to nothing more than reconnaissance,” Gray writes. “Pacquiao evaded some shots but he was tagged a lot more than Horn was."
...
Gray also says numbers don’t tell the whole story of a fight, particularly a scrappy brawl like the one seen on Sunday.
“In the early rounds Horn’s lateral movement, broken rhythm, feints and angles were giving Pacquiao fits. Horn was controlling distance and I personally felt he was more effective in the first half,” Gray writes.

“Pacquiao was at his best at long range but he got nothing done up close. Horn punched with his free hand in clinches. Pacquiao didn’t. Horn went to the body. Pacquiao didn’t. Horn belaboured his opponent against the ropes. Pacquiao didn’t."
Finally, some credible peeps who actually watched the fight.

Bring on the rematch. Horn/Pacquiao in Battle of Brisbane II. Brown tape this time
