The 10 Point Must System
In practice isn’t it really just the ‘3 Point Must System’?
An even round is scored 10-10; a close round 10-9; one knockdown 10-8; two knockdowns 10-7; three knockdowns they stop the fight. The 6 through 1 are superfluous.
After seventy something years of corrupt and incompetent scoring what could possibly have been going through the minds of the Olympic Boxing Committee. Do they really believe that the best way too clean-up the scoring in amateur boxing is to go with the 10 Point Must System? Did anyone in that room have any knowledge of the history of professional prize fighting? It makes me think that the ‘smartest guy in that room’ was one of the empty chairs.
