As we expected, Devin Haney (29-0, 15KOs) proved to be the superior fighter again over the weekend as he dominated George Kambosos Jr. in their rematch.

The scorecards (119-109, 118-110, 118-110) were emblematic of the nature of the proceedings as Haney was in control for most of the match save for a couple of rounds where Kambosos landed some heavy leather.

SCORING. I have often been asked why some matches seem very easy to judge and then as it turns out, the judges seem to be watching a different fight.

Remember that most of us boxing fans watch the fight on a screen, at optimum camera angles and with the added benefit of replays and close-ups.

In contrast, the judges are seated at ringside at opposite corners to prevent them from conferring with one another.

This results in a very limited perspective for a judge scoring the fight.

Consider also that his view might be obstructed at times by the referee or the punches landed are not easily discernible from where he is seated.

Then of course, you have to factor in a person’s inherent biases. By bias, I do not mean partiality to a particular fighter but rather to a certain style of fighting.

Some judges prefer aggressive fighters and are more likely to award the round to one who brings the action. Others prefer ring generalship and lean more towards fighters who control but not necessarily bring the action.

Ergo, that is why some trainers would rather have their fighters end the fight prematurely via knockout, rather than take the risk of letting the judges reveal their verdict.

NEW FLOYD? If you read our last column, I described Haney as a younger albeit less talented version of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Well lo and behold, after the rematch with Kambosos, I started seeing articles hailing Haney as the new Floyd Jr.

As I averted to before, Haney fights like Floyd because he engages when he wants to and is not afraid to let the fight turn boring as long as he is winning.

Haney’s jab is his bread and butter and leverages his offense off of that jab. He will also tie you up and clinch in order to stifle your offense and has quick hands.

That all adds up to a fighter who is difficult to beat and with Haney seemingly sporting also a good chin, this kid can go places.

He will probably dominate a division, but can he dominate the sport in the same manner as Floyd did?

Methinks not, but remember you read it here first.

LAST ROUND. It’s one of my closest buddies who celebrates a milestone this week, lawyer Allan F. Siu. Happy birthday, my dear friend. Cheers!
