    I had Bradley winning or possibly drawing the first fight with Pacquiao, Ward beating Kovalev the first fight, and Canelo beating GGG.

    Seems like those 3 fights are the biggest arguments of the last 5 or so years when it comes down to boxing, and I had all 3 of those guys winning those fights or at least drawing.

    Who else had those 3?

    I agree with Ward but that's it. Haven't seen the Bradley fight in awhile.

    It's ok, because TS is respected and revered.

    I'm a big Pac fan but I wasn't mad about the Bradley decision because it was razor close. I readily admit I'm a GGG fanboy but I thought Canelo took that one. People need to stop getting mad that their favorite fighter didn't get the nod in a super close fight.

    Ha, I had the opposite with all three fights you mentioned. They were all close though so I can accept if someone sees them differently.

    I had all 3 winning actually. Interesting point, as it sort if shows the bias that fans have towards punchers.

    Some fans just can't see guys with power doing anything wrong.

    And yet each one caused ridiculous outrage.

    People get into black and white thinking when it comes to who deserves to be called the winner, it's human nature.

    Ward and Canelo yes. Here is the deal: fans of popular punchers will flood the internet and media anytime the big puncher loses a close fight vs a boxer. They only see their guy charging forward and ignore all the shots they are eating to do it

    Please. There's a large contingency of slickster hipsters, yourself included, who have the exact opposite bias.

    We all have our biases, and tend to hold our own views as objective and others' views we disagree with as biased.

    lol @ Bradley winning. Ward/Kovalev 1 was a good decision. Great, close fight. I had GGG winning by a few rounds but I haven't sat down and closely rescored it yet so I'll hold off on taking a permanent stand there.

    If you had Bradley beating Pacman, you are indeed a terrible scorer just like I thought. Seriously, like 5 people on Earth thought Bradley won. He was beaten soundly, same with the 2nd and 3rd fights.

    Stop being a hipster.

    I thought Pac just edged him, but was fine with a draw or Bradley W.

    Ward kinda walked away with the Kov fight (edit: after KD).

    Canelo gassed, otherwise he was beating GGG up. Draw was perfect here, though. Canelo gassed bad, and GGG capitolized on it more than enough to argue the draw, but I can't see the win.

    Nah, the first fight was close. A drawish sort of fight. That was on of the first fights that made me realize that modern fans don't have any idea what they're looking at until Harold Lederman tells them what to see. Were you one of those people who scored rounds for Pac because he smiles, like Harold did?

    I always find it hilarious when people try to heckle other posters for getting the right score.

    I thought the first Pac/Bradley fight was a lot closer than people thought. Pac is so goddamn fast with his hands he got credit for landed a lot of punches that actually didn't land, if you go back and watch it again.

    But no I don't agree with any of that. I thought Pac won, Kovalev won the first fight and GGG for sure won this fight.
