Yeah I'd say that is a good example of a lucky win on Okami's part.
As far as judges decision, yes if the fight is close and and someone wins by split decision, the decision itself could be put down to luck. A coin flip really.
apart from these type of scenarios a victory based on pure luck is extremely rare. The Randleman KO was in no way pure luck, but you could say luck was a factor. Then of course that's where the arguing comes in on how big a factor it actually was, and that can go on forever
Does Crocop beat randleman 90% of the time?????????? If the answer is yes than it was probably lucky.
If there was an award for stupidest thread ever this would surely be a contender...
of course there is such a thing as "luck"...when a fighter lands a punch that 99 times out of a 100 he wouldn't have that's luck.
How do you know that he wouldn't have landed it 99 times out of 100?? Maybe those times he didn't land it, it was just luck on the other guy's part that he blocked it in time.
I don't see anything stupid about this thread. There's a big difference between getting lucky, which every fighter does with every move he makes basically, and winning solely on luck, which rarely happens. What is stupid about it anyway?
Luck is where opportunity meets preparation. Serra was prepared and took full advantage of his opportunity. He did everything it took to be in a position to reap the benefits of a situation that could involve luck.
There also degrees of luck. It's not like he was out of shape, closed gis eyes, and swung for the fences. Serra used skill to win the fight.
If that's luck, then so far in my life anytime I've done anything worthwhile, I just got lucky - but I created all that luck, just like Serra.
