"I think it's a tool, I think it's a quantitative tool and not a qualitative tool in the sense that it can somewhat accurately show who is throwing the most punches and maybe it gets close on who is landing the most punches. I don't think it can measure the quality of punches, normally. It is just a tool and it is usually the guy who throws the most punches is the aggressor and who wins the fight but it is not always the case."
Sure, but did he say Manny didn't win going away? Or that Compustats don't always show the whole story? Does he say it was a fairly close fight?
Maybe teh stats are off. But Manny above and beyond out-landed him on any stat system. That isn't my only argument. But he clearly out-landed him. he hit him with the harder shots.
You say Bradley took away his left hand. Yet Bradley....HIMSELF said Manny hurt him a few times with his left....
