I believe that had Pacquiao throwing more and landing more, but Marquez landing a higher percentage.
I think it was something like 180-130.
Pacquiao beats Marquez by controversial decision - Boxing - Yahoo! Sports
According to CompuBox, Pacquiao landed 176 of 578 punches. Marquez connected on 138 of 436 punches, preferring, as in his first two fights, to counter punch. Pacquiao had a 117-100 edge in power shots.
Those numbers seem a bit iffy to me. Regardless, the rounds which Marquez took were relatively easy to score and there were a lot of them.
I used to be a boxing fan who would use compubox until I have seen it be rather bad. 2 examples:
kirkland/angulo- angulo was 37 of 74 in the first round.
Just for fun(and that first round was great fun to replay multiple times) I counted the number of punches that Angulo threw from the second Kirkland got up from the knockdown till the 1:08 mark of round 1. It was over 80. Add in the 18-20 Angulo threw before Kirkland went down, and the few punches Angulo attemped in the final 1:08 of hte round and compubox was only off by about 30 or so punches.
Their punch stats missed 30 or so punches.
For the Haye vs Valuev fight, they had Haye throwing 144 punches or 12 punches a round. So if a guy only throws 12 punches a round you would figure they would be pretty damn accurate. Well, a coouple of people actually watched the fight and counted and they were off. Haye threw 13 punches a round. So in a fight where a guy threw 13 punches per round (which is so few my 4 yr old son could count them), compubox was off by 12 total punches. That is pretty pathetic.
Compu Box is for amateur fights; means practically nothing significant in pros.
If the fight goes to a decision, the compubox stats won't really matter that much. One guy could potentially out punch the other fighter 100 to 1 in one round but if the other rounds he gets out punched 10 to 1 he'd still get outpointed. Theoretically if the fight I mentioned is a 4 rounder, the compubox stats would be 104 to 44. Guess what though, the guy who scored 44 punches would still win the fight based on a per round basis.
Sorry, I'm a bit drunk so if the math goes wrong I know I messed up. Hopefully I made my point.
