Exclusive | KJ Noons Calls for Open Scoring in Boxing and MMA
Just Scrap Radio Episode 10 host Jens and Abel Pulver share with KJ Noons their thoughts on the last MMA and boxing fights along with the tragic scoring system that’s been happening all across the board.
KJ Noons suggest to have open scoring for both boxing and MMA.
“Every round we should know who wins,” Noons continues on to say, “It’s the only sport that I can think of that you don’t know the score the whole time. Basketball game you know the score, football you know the score and when it goes into question. A lot of fighters rely on coaches whether MMA or boxing round 10 or round 12 in boxing or round 3 in MMA the coaches tell the fighters they’re winning and every single person in the room knows they’re losing.
We just have to know the score right after the round so that fighter can fight harder or the person could change his strategy but not just go on like in the dark. You leave it to these guys who are judges a lot of times, a lot of these judges are like old judges, old school. They can’t even look past 10 feet. They look like they never worked out a day in their life – it’s weird.
Open scoring eliminates the whole commotion as far as – is it going to be a fishy outcome” says KJ Noons
Abel Pulver responds and says “I think you’re right. I think boxing has become a really shitty surprise party and somebody who doesn’t like surprises every time has to get a surprise.”
They go on to talk about the yellow card system, strategies with Condit vs Diaz, Guida vs Maynard, Stout vs Fisher, running you’ll get points taken away but if you lay and prey it’s ok, taking down your opponent down the last 5 seconds to secure the round and more at Just Scrap Radio Episode 10
