Do you people know what a split decision is?

A split decision is when two judges score for one guy and a third judge scores for the other guy.  So when you say I don't think it should't have been unanamous but should have been a split means you are saying one judge should have scored it for the other guy.  You are basically saying what one of the judges opinions should be, and that it should be different from the other two.

As far as I know the scoring of the fight can't make it a split decision.  It can make it a draw or a loss but unanamous or split only comes by way of which judges scored it how.  I'm I correct in this?

So you can agree or disagree with it should have been 29-28 or 30-27 or whatever but unanimous and split just means they all agree or don't agree. So when you say it should have been a split it means you think one guy should have disagreed with the other two but that maybe the other two were correct as well.

Make sense?
