MMT friend and leading UK Muay Thai Judge Tony Myers needs your help. Dr. Myers and his team are working on a study on scoring and he needs your input. If you get a moment, and you think you know your way around combat scoring have a go.
Message from Tony:
Who do you think wins this fight?
The fight game has been littered with controversial decisions that have left fans outraged, and bewildered by the judges’ call. From the outrageous Roy Jones vs. Park Si-Hun in the 1988 Olympics, through the richly disputed Hagler vs. Leonard battle, to more recent MMA controversies such as Galvao vs. Warren or Machida vs. Rua I. Muay Thai is no exception with some hotly disputed decisions across the globe.
We would like you and other fight fans to help us discover what makes fight decisions fair or totally outrageous.
If you would like to help us your participation will take approximately 16 minutes in total and involve you watching a 15 minute video of a Muay Thai match. After watching the match, you will be asked who you think won the match and, when you are given the actual decision, rate how fair you think the decision was.
