The folks at CompuBox sent over the numbers and their analysis for last night's controversial rematch between Gabriel Campillo and Beibut Shumenov.
One of the fantastic things about the CompuBox program is its ability to not only break down a fighter's offense by the kind of punches he throws but also provide a minute-by-minute summary of a fighter's effectiveness.
For the fight, Campillo out-landed Shumenov 320-219 -- a 101-punch gap -- but in many rounds Shumenov built a huge lead in the first minute to force Campillo to fight from behind in most rounds. That may have been the reason behind last night's decision. Here is the total breakdown minute by minute:
First minute: Shumenov 100/317, Campillo 60/157
Second minute: Shumenov 62/208, Campillo 130/308
Third minute: Shumenov 57/232, Campillo 130/301
In the first minutes of rounds 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 and 12, Shumenov out-landed Campillo 47-13, which conceivably could have given him enough of a push to capture the round in the judges' eyes. In rounds 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11 -- where Campillo offered a more balanced offense throughout all three minutes -- Shumenov had only a 50-48 connect edge in the first minute.
As seen above Campillo was the master in the second and third minutes and while he had a commanding edge on the total stats his tendency to fight in spurts -- and the fact that the fight was in Shumenov's adopted home town -- may have cost him the title.
Full numbers after the jump.
