I remember one of the first amateur boxing events I had ever attended leaving a lasting impression on me in regards to judging. I was there ringside as an assistant to our coach for my younger brother's match. This is not about his match though. One particluar match that day was an absolute beat down. This kid had serious power and you could feel each punch resonate through the gym. It felt absolutely terrible for his opponent, who, although, resilient and fought back hard, had nothing for him. It was a three round match and the referee stopped it halfway through the third. My family had been there too and later I asked one of them if they'd recorded that particular match. They did and to my surprise, it looked like an absolutely different match with the eventual loser actually outstriking his opponent. On screen, it was a close fight, and honestly, it was hard to tell why the referee even stopped it. That day really opened my eyes to what judges see, hear and feel as opposed to what we see on screen.
