    I was watching the Klitschko fight today and after the 8th round they announced the judged scores so far in the fight. This was the first time I had ever seen this. Is this something they do in Europe or is it new?

    The actual judges scores or one of the commentator's scores?

    On a side note, I just recently found out that if two judges call a fight a draw and the third judge decides in favor of one fighter.

    The match ends as a majority draw, not a split decision in favor of the one fighter. Did not know this.

    Boxing hasn't been relevant for at least 10 years.

    That doesn't surprise me. Chisora spit water in Vladimir's face before the fight started in addition to slapping Vitali yesterday. They also had to break them up in the ring after the fight.

    It was the actual judges scores. I've never seen that before.
