Fury wasn't doing anything but throwing, he had no pop no sting on his punches just swinging. When Wilder connected there was a sting an impact which is PRO boxing. i put far more into one ...ouch!....than 4/5 nohing punchs landing.Experience only matters to a certain point, plenty of official judges in fights who have score more fights than either of us have will sometimes get it horribly wrong. That's the thing about scoring a fight, it's subjective and so 2 people can watch the same fight and come to different conclusions.
Personally barring the knockdowns the fight wasn't close at all. Even in those KD rounds Fury would of won those rounds barring the KD's. The only reason this fight was close on the scorecards was because of those knockdowns, Fury dominated long periods of the fight and I had him winning by 2 rounds meaning he won 8 of the 12 rounds.
The official punch stats confirm this view of the fight. Fury out landed Wilder in 9 of the 12 rounds and even if we disregard jabs and only look at power punches Fury landed more and Wilder only landed more power punches in 2 of the 12 rounds, you can guess which rounds.
Of course punch stats shouldn't decide a fight, we saw how that worked in the amateur game with the computer scoring and it sucked. But it's a nice information to have which can help confirm or disprove how a fight was viewed.
Fury also was the more accurate fighter, Wilder threw 103 more punches but landed fewer, which paints a picture of a fight where Wilder was missing a lot and that in regards to ring generalship aspect of scoring, it matters. When one fighter makes the other miss time and time again, in a fight where punches landed is pretty similar it should swing a close round to the more elusive fighters favour as they are the one controlling the pace and direction of the fight.
Fact is Fury's ring generalship was superior to Wilder's. He was dictating the fight, he was the one fighting his usual style, making this a fight fought at a low pace and also fought in the centre of the ring for most of the fight, where he wanted. Things like this decide close rounds. Wilder as many of his supporters have said, fought badly, got too wild right from the start, didn't fight his usual fight, that should score against a fighter, he wasn't able to fight his type of fight, couldn't dictate terms or pace.
Also Wilder's jab was negated. He was forced to throw it to the body because he usually couldn't land it to the head. Again that shows Fury controlling an aspect of the fight and that in regards to ring generalship means he wins the closer rounds. Also I personally don't score jabs to the body as having the same value as jabs to the head, it's harder to land to the head so it's a more meaning punch if you care comparing jabs landed.
So if in a close round where there really isn't much difference in punches landed, if you are scoring for the fighter who is being made to miss more, having the pace dictated to him, being forced to fight in areas of the ring he prefers not to be in and being made to fight outside of his usual style then I'm sorry you're scoring the fight wrong in my opinion. But as I said scoring is subjective, would be interested to hear why you think Wilder was winning the close rounds where there wasn't much to divide them in shots landed.
Those I watched the fight with a judge pretty much saw that same fight I did, the better more important punches were landed by Wilder.
