Any sport that needs a human judge can never be completely fair.

They need to change the rules of boxing (and MMA) so they get rid of points decisions.. Two men enter.. one man leaves..

Horn started well but Pac clearly got the better of him. 


The McGregor vs Mayweather sideshow is interesting.  99.9% chance Floyd wins but I'll watch in case of the 0.1% happening.  The build up should be spectacular too.

Didn't see this thread. I watched the fight. It was all Horn, he was lucky to last 9th round, and Manny came back, but he didn't seem to come back big time. I know the result before I watched it, and I thought it was close. I could see Horn winning as he seemed to do more, and be the aggressor, what judges like. IMHO he was in front all the way, and while Manny closed the gap I wasn't surprised he won. BUT, Manny scored twice as many hits? That surprised me. I know Horn swung a lot and missed, but Manny wasn't exactly that busy himself. I just didn't see it being the hoopla loss that is all in the boxing news. I watched a youtube of the fight with punches noted, I should watch it again. But the real life watch didn't give me the impression Manny won easily.
