Six judges will score tonight’s ESPN fights

Tonight, WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt (37-1, 33 KOs) will be fighting Eleazar “Tronco” Valenzuela (21-13-4, 16 KOs) in a non-title bout. Omar “Pollo” Aguilar (17-0, 16 KOs) will face Dante “Crazy” Jardón (32-6, 23 KOs) and highly regarded prospect David Picasso (14-0, 5 KOs) meets Florentino “Violento” Pérez (14-5-2, 9 KOs).

The event takes place at TV Azteca Studios in Mexico City with no spectators in attendance.

With health authorities seeking to limit the number of persons at the event, judges will score remotely off-site. There will be three judges at the TV studio, and three more working from home in the United States. All six scorecards will be official.

The event “Volvemos con Punch” will be aired by Television Azteca in Mexico, ESPN in the USA and ESPN Knockout all through central and South America.

  • They should keep official scorecards to an odd number. And add a 13th round in the event of a draw.

    • I definitely agree about keeping scorecards to an odd number, but adding an extra round is not safe, which is why official bouts went from 15 to 12. It’s just not healthy for fighters.

    • Actually this would be a good idea. More judges are better from a statistical standpoint. This is why you see press row scoring almost always choose the right winner. It’s similar logic to the “law of large numbers.” Of course, this won’t work with fans because they don’t actually have the minimum capacity to judge a fight.

  • Finally! I’ve been saying this for years. The more judges you have, the more accurate the scoring. It’s just statistics. Although you probably need more than 6

    • Actually, it would probably be better to just go back to having the referee be the sole judge. One man, one vote.
