If I knew how to create a poll I'd do so but since I don't I'll just ask. I was watching Khan/Maidana with a few buddies who generally don't watch boxing unless they're at my house and I force them. They were pretty entertained by the fight but at one point they asked me if I agreed or disagreed with Lederman's scoring. I disagreed with some of the rounds that he gave to Maidana so they followed that up by asking me in general do I agree with his scoring? That one really made me think because I usually tune him out and only vaguely pay attention to his scores. I ended up telling my friends that if the two fighters were of similar status/celebrity I agree with most of Lederman's scoring but when one fighter's popularity immensely outweighs the other I feel like Lederman gives the popular fighter way too much credit. But then my friends asked, "well isn't Khan more well known than Maidana?" at which point I told them I give up and can't really answer since I don't listen to much of HBO's broadcast team for anything.
The question has lingered though so I thought I'd ask you guys. What do you think of Harold Lederman's unofficial score cards? Do you think he gets it right most of the time, some of the time, or hardly ever?
