NSAC Stand By Bradley-Chaves, Herrera Scorecards

By Edward Chaykovsky

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett has reviewed the scorecards from last Saturday's HBO televised tripleheader from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Bennett says he is standing by the controversial scoring in two of the three contests.

Timothy Bradley and Diego Chaves ended in a twelve round split draw, in a fight where nearly everyone saw Bradley as the clear winner. And then a World Boxing Association super lightweight title fight between champion Mauricio Herrera and Jose Benavidez Jr., where the challenger got a dominating unanimous decision over twelve rounds - and most saw Herrera as the clear winner.

The score that drew a lot of critics to complain was the card of Julie Lederman, who had Chaves winning 116-112. As far as the other fight, Dave Moretti had it 117-111 Benavidez, while Max DeLuca and Eric Cheek ad it 116-112.

“When you look at the scoring of both fights, the judges were in the majority 86 percent in the Bradley fight and 83 percent in the Herrera fight,” Bennett told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “That’s a pretty good job. Julie was in the majority in all 12 of her rounds. I thought the Bradley-Chaves fight was an aggressive, hard-fought, forward-moving fight. There were a lot of close rounds. The judges also told me that Benavidez landed the more accurate scoring blows and did so more frequently than Herrera.”

"I understand where the fans are unhappy and the media saw it differently. But a few things. First, these judges are very experienced, and they’re trained to watch the entire three minutes of every round. Two, they are right in front of the action and have a better vantage point than the fans and most of the media. Third, there’s no vested interest on the part of the judges as to who wins, while the fans are rooting for one fighter or the other.”

Filing a complaint for a controversial decision is a waste a time. I do feel bad for Herrera as the guy just can't seem to get a break. I don't feel bad for Bradley, would've actually preferred if they had…

Not really surprising

The 'majority' logic is horrible. If one judge ****s up it's bad, but if at least two ****k up then it's a legitimate score?
