can someone please explain how one judge gave the fight 30-27 to st preux even though fight was stopped 30 seconds in the 1sr round ????
I might get this slightly wrong from memory but the rule is something like this:
If the fight is more than halfway done and it ends with an accidental foul, the portion of the fight that has been completed is scored normally (including the like 1 minute of the third round.)
The scores were: 30-28, 30-29, and 29-29
So the only way this makes sense to me is if
Judge 1: 10-9 1st and 2nd rounds, 10-10 3rd = 30-28
Judge2: 10-9 1st 10-10 2nd AND 3rd = 30-29
Judge3: 10-9 1st, 9-10 2nd, 10-10 3rd = 29-29
Looks like the scores heading into the 3rd were most likely 20-18, 20-19, and 19-19 in OSP's favour. Villante needed a finish in order to get better than a split draw, if he lost the round he would lose outright.
