A draw - what - a DRAW !!!

Can't remember the last draw I've seen in a 3 man judging panel in a boxing match.

Bazza Bazza - advice please ?

No idea how the fight went.
Gallen did his Mundine impression to hype it up and sell tickets but it seemed slanted in Halls favour
Home town AFL support ( don't put too much stock in that)
Judges who apparently need to visit specs savers
Short 2 minute rounds to give Hall recovery time.
Gallen takes majority points but because 2 judges call it a draw the points win doesnt count and its called a majority draw.

As for the fight , didn't see it so will happily await Voldys expert eye being cast over the action in the ring.

Majority draw. 2 judges said it was a draw. The other judge said Gallen won on points. Hopefully there is a rematch in Sydney.

I have already watched these 2 fights.
I think Sonny was in the pay of the mob due to the way he died and his lifestyle.
That aside no one really gave Clay much chance of winning and he finished his career with about 56 - 5 - 1 .
I am sure some afficiendado would have the exact figures.
No one also gave him a hope against Foreman. It was a highlight fight from a fighter with brains winning over brawn
