One tournament in Data Boxing is not considered final. With the all time greats in a tournament, anything can happen. I will stage a series of tournaments using the card for Dr. Compton's 1981 tournament and post the results here at TTS

P.S. My #1 sports simulation is Data Boxing PC and I discussed why at a Boxrec.com talk page….

As I've stated before, one bout or tournament using Data Boxing is not the final word. A series of bouts or tournaments is needed before drawing a conclusion. Regarding the Marciano vs. Liston bouts in the above recreations of Dr. Compton's 1981 HW Tournament, I also staged an extended series of bouts in the virtual world of Data Boxing between Marciano and Liston. The results are at another TTS thread...

P.S. Don Mankowski, analyst/programmer for Data Boxing 6.0, discusses the analysis of results at a Delphi site...

DATA BOXING TEST FOR JEFFRIES VS. JOHNSON

In the quarterfinals, Jeffries (in-his-prime) knocked out Johnson in the 4th round. In 1910, when Jeffries was past his prime, he made an ill-advised comeback after being retired for six years and lost to Johnson. I ran a 100 bout series using Data Boxing 6.0 for the Jeffries-Johnson matchup with both in their primes. I set the sereis to terminate early if a significant result was achieved at the 0.1% level. Johnson won...

Johnson-Jeffries 31-8-3, 6-2 KOs, 2-0 TKOs


P.S. For further information on the boxers in this tournament, readers may wish to consult the Boxrec Boxing Encylopedia site.

JEFFRIES-WALCOTT SERIES

Jersey Joe Walcott beat James J. Jeffries by decision twice and lost to Jeffries by kayo once in the sweet sixteen rounds of my Data Boxing 6.0 replays of Julian Compton's 1981 Computer Heavyweight Tournament. To tell who would probably win in a matchup between two great champions like Jeffries and Walcott, I staged a 100 bout series over 15 rounds between Walcott and Jeffries and set the series to terminate early if a significant result was achieved at the 2% level. Jeffries won...

Jeffries-Walcott 12-3-0; 8-0 KOs, 0-0 TKOs.

P.S. Jeffries is rated as the #1 heavyweight of all time by Tracy G. Callis, Historian, International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO). See the link I provided in the previous post for the article entitled The Greatest Fighters of All-Time for more information.

Sounds great! It's so hard to find the Data Boxing for computer game, is it still available anywhere?

In a tribute to the late Dr. Julian Compton (Born February 29, 1940 - Died 1st of April, 2010), I reenacted Dr. Compton's 1981 All-Time Heavyweight Boxing Tournament that was featured in his book Computer Sports Matchups. In the final, James J. Jeffries beat Muhammad Ali (KO 15). The writeup and details are at my website..
