    split/ majority dec?

    I really hate to sound ignorant, but could somebody please explain the difference between a split decision and a majority decision?

    2 judges for Boxer A, third judge for Boxer B (A gets a split decision)
    2 for Boxer A, the third calls it a draw (A gets a majority decision)

    Thanks for the clarification. Didn't both these use to be split decisions? I must have been hit in the head to many times, I don't remember there being any distinction between the two when I was younger.

    I beleive

    They have always termed this way.

    Add to this, the Majority Draw: Two Judges call the bout even and one judge votes for one fighter.

    See Dokes Weaver II.

    I believe Pea-Chavez was a majority draw?

    So, really, he sort of won it!

    The two Patterson-Quarry fights were the best example of these decisions.
    IMO had Patterson been more aggressive, he could have easily won both fights.
    #1 - 1 scores a 1 point edge for Quarry, 2 score it even (Majority Draw)
    Floyd gave this one away by playing cigar store Indian the last two rounds letting Jerry salvage a draw.
    #2 - 2 score a 1 point edge for Quarry, ref Vern Bybee scores it even. (Majority Decision)
    The first scrap was much, much more exciting. I watched the rematch again recently and it seems like nothing more than a glorified sparring session.

    Interesting that in the 22 rounds fought between the two, the general consensus in scoring was 11 rounds Patterson, 9 rounds Quarry w/2 rounds even. The knockdowns were the difference. 4-1 Quarry tho the two in the second fight were flash ones (Floyd looked more embarrassed than hurt)
