CompuBox PunchStat Report
Tim Bradley W 12 (spl) Manny Pacquiao
06/09/2012 Las Vegas
Really CJ Ross (115-113) and Duane Ford (115-113)? Manny outlanded Bradley 253-159 in total punches and had a 190-108 edge in power shots landed. Manny outlanded Bradley in 10 of 12 rounds.
Taking a deeper look at the stats and the judges scorecards, Pacquiao had a 22-8 edge in total punches landed in round 5 and Ross and Ford gave that round to Bradley. Pacquaio had a 27-11 edge in total punches landed in round 7 and ALL 3 judges gave that round to Bradley.
An interesting CompuBox stat that may have helped to alter the cards of Ford and Ross (and even Roth’s). Of Manny’s 253 landed punches, 122 (48%) occurred in the final minute of each round. This should not have had an effect on the judges scoring since the entire round is scored, however, perhaps Manny created the perception that he was losing rounds by starting slow. Of his 253 landed punches, only 42 (17%) occurred in the first minute of each round.
