I think that Godard lands the best punch of the fight but Brashear had better position and control for more of the fight. I think that's why the voting was so split.
I guess I'm not easily influenced by "BLOOD" to give a victory for that reason alone.
As the old saying goes, "you can win the battle, but lose the war". That's how I look at injuries incurred in a fight. Part of fighting is bleeding, broken noses etc.
The big question is did it end the fight? In this case, no it didn't and they could have both continued on.
In this fight I would give the decision to Brashear but wouldn't have a problem with people who scored it different.
