Precision with regards to Bout #118

In accordance to its full commitment for transparency, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has decided to take the unusual step of revealing the individual scores of Bout #118 of the London 2012 Olympic Games between Ievgen Khytrov (Ukraine, Red) and Anthony Ogogo (Great Britain, Blue). Below, find their complete breakdown of the scores, the rules, and how they worked to get this result.

Individual Score RED : BLUE RED : BLUE RED : BLUE RED : BLUE RED : BLUE
ROUND 1 2 : 5 2 : 5 3 : 5 3 : 6 4 : 6
ROUND 2 8 : 6 7 : 5 6 : 4 5 : 6 7 : 8
ROUND 3 10 : 7 8 : 3 5 : 6 7 : 7 11 : 8
SUM 20 : 18 17 : 13 14 : 15 15 : 19 22 : 22

According to Appendix L of AIBA Technical & Competition Rules:

“2.1. Per round, each Individual Score is counted.

2.2. The scores in each round are the average of three Judges’ score combination which are the closest together called as Similar Scores.

2.3. For each round, the results of the Individual Scores are calculated separately for the red Boxer and the blue Boxer.

2.4. If at the end of a round more than one Similar Score appears, the Trimmed Mean calculation will apply. The Trimmed Mean is when the highest and lowest Individual Scores are taken out and the average of the remaining three Individual Scores is counted.”

Selected Scores RED : BLUE
ROUND 1 3 : 5
ROUND 2 7 : 6
ROUND 3 8 : 7
SUM 18 : 18

According to Appendix L of AIBA Technical & Competition Rules:

“4.2 In case of a tie in the Final Scores:

–       4.2.1. First, delete the lowest and highest Judges’ total scores in each red and blue corner. Then, the winner will be determined by the total scores of the remaining three Judges of each red and blue corner.

  RED BLUE
Judge 1 20 18
Judge 2 17 13
Judge 3 14 15
Judge 4 15 19

–       4.2.1. Second, in case of a tie after the above process, all five (5) Judges shall be asked to press the button once for the Boxer who has won. The decision is made by the majority of the panel of these five (5) Judges.”

The majority of the five (5) Judges was then in favor of Great Britain Anthony Ogogo.
