Last night’s fight, Victor Ortiz and Lamont Peterson fought to a surprisingly majority decision draw. Many boxing insiders were shocked at the judges decision. One judge had it 95-93 for Peterson, while the other two had it 94-94. ESPN’s Dan Rafael and HBO’s Harold Lederman both had it 97-91 for Ortiz. I had the fight 98-90 for Ortiz. Victor Ortiz came into the ring at 156lbs while Peterson came in at 149lbs. In the first round, Ortiz suffered a left cut on the sideline after an accidental head butt. Ortiz looked very fast and comfortable at that weight. I was surprising to see him use his footwork and how he was able to control that ring. In the 3rd round, Ortiz became more aggressive and knocked down Peterson twice. Lamont appeared to be badly hurt and for a moment, it looked like this fight was going to go past the 4th round. But, Peterson was able to overcome those two knockdowns and boxed his way into the fight. The 5th and 6th round, Peterson used his boxing skills to out boxed Ortiz. Throughout the fight, Ortiz appeared to have difficulty adjusting to Lamont Petersons’ boxing style. He would try to creep in and land couple of shots but there were times that Peterson’s counter punches would catch Ortiz. I had Ortiz winning rounds 7-10th as he appeared to be the most aggressive fighter. Peterson did landed some good power punches in some of those rounds and in the 9th landed a great right power punch to Ortiz chin that he was able to take it in stride. Both fighter fought a great fight but there is no way that this fight should have been a draw. I really think that Ortiz won the fight by at least couple of rounds. The judges for this fight were terrible.
