What are some of the scorecards you get stick for

We know that scoring is subjective but there are some standards we have to stick to, one example is the winner of the round must get 10 points under normal circumstances. Another is punches landed score, punches missed or blocked don't.

But from time to time despite our adherence to the agreed methods we'll see a fight differently from one another even to the point where a majority of viewers see it one way but you're all on your own with a 'dodgy' scorecard so you keep it to yourself rather than risk being ridculed with "you don't know sh*t about boxing" being the common insult when you have a different view on something.

I can't promise you won't get any stick from people on here if you decide to reveal yours lol but I will go first if it helps.

So what we're doing is posting our scores and/or results for fights that went the distance, which we know the majority of boxing fans disagree(d) with and the boxer I thought won the fight has their name in capital letters, let me know if you agree with any. Let's go!

PORTER vs Brook
CANELO vs Golovkin 1 (116-112)
KLITSCHKO vs Fury (114-113)
D. GARCIA vs Herrera
Pacquiao vs Bradley 1 (114-114)

I'm sure there's more but I can't think of them right now but I'll update if I do. Do you guys have any to share?

Off the top of my head,
Pac vs Bradley 1 115 -113 to Bradley, on rewatch I think I had it a draw.
AJ vs Parker I had it for Parker on the night, I still maintain this fight wasn't indicative of anything, with that ref. I haven't rewatched it though.
Canelo vs Jacobs 114 -114 on rewatch. I had it for Jacobs on the night but I was hammered and seated pretty far away from the action.

I always thought Joe Frazier possibly beat Ali or at least got a draw in their 2nd fight.

I thought DeLaHoya clearly beat Whitaker, but arguably lost to John John Molina.

Jesus, I can't top what has already been posted.

Canelo clearly beating Golovkin? Parker beating AJ? Fury losing to Klitscko.

Patently insane.

I get the most stick for Duran-Barkley and Barrera-Morales II.

Duran won clearly, it wasn't particularly close, and Barrera and Morales II was a pick 'em. Either way is fine.

I keep meaning to rewatch AJ vs Parker since everybody says I'm wrong, was I on something that night?
But then, remembering it, I can't bring myself to do it. It was so boring even the highlights are boring.

:lol: Maybe pal.

I don't recall anyone ever saying the fight was debatable let alone Parker winning it.

I thought James Toney fairly beat Dave Tiberi, while the whole world denounces it as the worst decision ever.

In a similar vein, I thought Kid Gavilan clearly beat Billy Graham in their infamous 3rd fight.

I had Quartey over de la Hoya.

Also had Hearns over Leonard in their rematch.

Mayweather lost to Castillo, I don't care what the judges said.

One point to the op, the winner of the round does get 10, but I score rounds even as well. If neither fighter takes the round, then it's 10-10.

I think that has led to many incorrect scorecards, the mentality that you have to give the round to someone and never score it even.
