Split decisions should mean the champion retains the title.

    Shouldn't have a title change if the judges can't even make up their mind on who won. in order to be the champion you have to beat the champion

    What? If 2 judges think you won then you won. You know 2 is greater than 1? You just have to win by the smallest margin to win. That's how sports work. If Arsenal beat Spurs on penalties they win. If the Lakers beat Celtics 110-109 They win. I don't get this bullshit fighting term.

    No. Your idea is bad, and you should feel bad.

    If no-one is a clear winner by the end of the scheduled rounds, then the fight should continue under Thunderdome rules.

    If the judges don’t agree, call it a draw. That idea has been floating around for a while and it kinda grew on me.

    First of all lets stop thinking of that line "in order to beat the champ" as some kind of special principle.

    Secondly it's a fight like any other fight, if you won by split decision then you beat the champ by split decision. The champ doesn't deserve the belt if more judges scored it in the other guy's favor.
