Diego landed enough, and got the takedown in round 3 to secure the round. Only round 2 is up for discussion for me, and in that round Diego definitely hurt Kampmann in the big flurry. It was a close fight, with Round 2 being the important one. Again though, it definitely wasn't a robbery.

This. I scored it the same. But damn, looking at Diego's face now...can't help but second guess my eyes and sense of who's winning a round.

I wouldn't say robbed but I remember coming away thinking Sanchez might have stole the round but I bet if I rewatched it I would think Kampmann did enough to win the 2nd round. Sanchez really only landed those couple decent shots that semi buckled Sanchez and Kampmann was hitting Sanchez just as hard but it wasn't hurting him.

I can't believe Kampmann is so stupid though. Obviously stronger and yet refuses to try for a takedown even in the 3rd when he clearly needed one after Diego got his. Also a far more technical striker but let Diego brawl with him in the 2nd and 3rd.

Diego deserved to win tonight just because Kampmann is such an idiot. If you aren't going to go balls to the wall looking for a finish then you have to at least try and win on points...

Really? For me round two is clearly Diego's and round 3 is the one in question.

Some are saying Diego was rocked in round 2 as well but I only saw Kampmann get rocked twice. I remember Diego landing more power punches but Kampmann landing more overall.

Round three is a lot harder to score in my opinion. Diego had the takedown but he swung wildly and didn't land much at all. Kampmann landed a lot more and opened up a huge cut under Diego's right eye but he got taken down.

Actually at one point close to the end of the 2nd I thought to myself this should probably be a 10-10 round. Kampmann controlled the majority of it but got semi buckled twice later in the round.

Yes it was a horrible decision. Diego tried to brawl a few times the last couple rounds, besides that he got counter punched to death and Kampann decided that the fight stay standing throughout the fight. The one takedown Diego got in the 3rd round Kampann got up within a few seconds. You have to score the fight to kampann, even the 2nd round if you gave it to Diego was questionable.

This was a tough fight that could have gone either way so I don't feel it can be considered a robbery.


Those were robbery's this was a tough fight and a tough call.

Unfortunately, I would have to go with the judges on this one. I thought Diego may have had a shot to win it, but figured Kammpman would because of his more dominant first round. I have no issues with this decision, but wouldn't have minded either fighter winning. I do think though that Kammpman sort of brokedown half way through that second round. Hell, he didn't even look quite the same after the first one.

They need to start scoring fights only on damage done, this "aggression" and "octagon control" criteria has led to soo many bad decisions lately.

It wasn't a complete robbery but aggression in a striking battle shouldn't count for as much as it does. Some guys are more defensive than others and as much boxing as I've watched it pains me to see guys get rewarded for rushing forward and recklessly throwing bombs with around 65-70% of those missing completely. It wouldn't shock me if Diego landed less than 35% of his strikes. I also think Kampmann did more damage throughout the entirety of the fight, Diego only had two flurries in the second and 1 TD in the third.
