Cheers, that makes a lot of sense.nt
Firstly the points system makes it seem more precise than it is. In truth almost every round will be scored 10-9 absent a knockdown or a low blow, so for each judge who won ends up being who won the most rounds.
If the judge tossed a coin to decide who won each round, there would be a 22% chance of a 6-6 split on rounds and the judge scoring it a draw.
If the other judges split the decision then the match is a draw. The margin the other judges had doesn't matter.
You have to assume that given the high KO% in heavyweight fights any title fights going the distance are fairly evenly matched.
