Jamie McDonnell In Early Fight Of The Year

Jamie McDonnell vs Stephane Jamoye - European Bantamweight Title

Sky Sports got their boxing season off to a great start last night with an early candidate for fight of the year. Jamie McDonnell successfully defended his European Bantamweight Title against tough Belgian Stephane Jamoye winning on a majority points decision.

Going around the major boxing forums i found that just about everybody had this fight very close with scores of 114-113 or 115-113 being scored for both fighters. One thing i noticed was that on the "worldwide" parts of forums and non British websites they seemed to all favor jamoye. British websites and forums disagreed and mostly thought that McDonnell had done enough to defend his title.

My scorecard read 115-112 to McDonnell , slightly wider than most although i think my scoring of the 12th round to McDonnell changed my card from being like many a 114-113 score. I though that the Belgian started the round well and won the first minute but McDonnell responded and for me won the final 2 minutes of the round. I also believe that the point deduction for McDonnell in the 11th (fully deserved after repeated warnings) made this fight a lot closer.
