WBA (reg) bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell, has joined the chorus of passionate British fans outraged at some of the ‘unofficial’ US scoring of his entertaining rematch bout with Tomoki Kameda last Sunday, that saw experts such as Paulie Malignaggi and ESPN’s Dan Rafael, as well as many others in North America, seemingly favouring the out-hustled and out-worked Kameda.

The official scorecards of 116-111, 115-112 and 117-110, just about told the whole story between them, as in the eyes of this writer, after giving the left-hook happy Kameda rounds 1 and 2 – which he clearly won – it was difficult to give him too much else for the rest of the fight, although while scoring is indeed subjective, and many rounds were close, it’s a stretch how anyone could possibly have had Kameda ‘comfortably’ ahead, as Paulie Malignaggi suggested he did, on twitter.
