119-110 is pretty incredible.

I thought the fight could have gone either way. Lampley made it sound like Martinez won every round, including rounds where he didn't do much either.

For what it's worth, and it may not be worth much, Paul threw more punches and landed more punches, threw more jabs and landed more jabs, threw more power punches and landed more power punches.

and as you can see, I had it for Martinez by one point.
