    Never trust a guy named Jed. Sounds dodgy

    Going backwards never looks good to judges even it's exactly what you wanted to do.

    I'm glad they didn't reward WB's point fighting style.

    Most of us scored it the same way.

    That said, when you are in someone elses home town, you have to bring it. WB certainly did NOT do that, and Till appeared to press the action.

    I was not at all shocked by the decision, even though I thought Thompson outlanded him overall.

    Why does WB fights always lead to the same after fight topic did he win or didn't he? Unless he's KOing some slow footed plodding type fighter his point fighting karate/kick box keep big distance style brings more questions than answers.

    I feel the same way. I think WB technically won, but he's become way to conservative in fighting for boring decisions.

    I'm just glad that boring point fighting wasn't rewarded.

    This is a ridiculous way of thinking. You are excusing incompetence. Yeah WB should have done better than win 3 or 4 rounds because it was Till's home town. Dumb.

    lol

    Relax, smart guy.

    I said I had WB ahead (like most everyone did), but I understand how this game goes.

    Never said I agree with it, but it does not surprise me.

    I had it for Thompson as well but it was a very close fight either way, I give Till the last round but the other 4 were razor close so it's hard to say.

    How do you dominate a fight where the strikes were nearly even and both your legs have visible bruising while your opponent looked like he left a sparring session?

    WB once again fought not to lose while Till fought to win.

    I honestly believe WB goes into fights thinking I want to win a decision.

    It was a sparring contest for most of 25 minutes. I gave Till the last round due to the knockdown, the other 4 could have gone either way (even though Thompson seemed to outland Till throughout). Overall disappointing, but at least it hopefully gets Thompson out of title shot / main-event-5-round territory for the time being.
