You seriously don't think a "sudden death overtime" variable should be in the back of judges' minds when they pencil in their scores at the end of a round?Lots of nonsense in this post.
Nobody, especially judges, should be scoring a fight as champion vs challenger, there's nothing in the rules which says to do this. If Reyes wins 3 close round, he should be the champion. You don't have to 'rip the belt off him', 'show you're the man' or any other cliche.
"the real winner is the one who looks like if there was a sudden death overtime round, he would get the better of it" is nonsense too and ignores any strategy in the fight. If your strategy is to win the first 3 rounds and then coast 2, you're not going to look like you'd win a 6th round. Winning the 5th round is no better than winning the 1st.
