Data Boxing 6.0

ROCKY MARCIANO VS. JOE FRAZIER

"DREAM FIGHT"

If Rocky Marciano and Joe Frazier had traveled through time for a match-up with both in their primes, who would win? I staged this dream fight in the dimension of boxing known as Data Boxing, a boxing simulation represented by years of research by university professor Dr. Julian Compton, and implemented in the computer version by NASA programmer, Don Mankowski. It was very entertaining to watch the action screen describe Marciano and Frazier slugging it out in the virtual world of Data Boxing. Here are my results from the computer-simulated fight between “The Brockton Blockbuster” and “Smokin’ Joe.” Both boxers were represented with their peak ratings.

This computer fight gives one an idea of what a great match-up this is. Both fighters came out smokin' from the opening bell. Let’s look at some of the fight narrative excerpted from the first and third rounds (the color analyst option was not activated for this bout)…

[The announcer:]

For a synopsis of the fight, the DBLINE file reports...

P = points; J = judge cards; R = judge rounds; N = knockdowns;
C = cuts; I = injury; F = fouls


Joe Frazier TKO(rsf)11 Rocky Marciano P68/32 J95/90 95/94 95/90
R5/5 5/5 5/5 N1/1 C5/0 I2/0 F0/0


ENDNOTES: One Data Boxing result is not considered definitive for a close match-up like Marciano-Frazier. A series of bouts between Marciano and Frazier would need to be analyzed before making a judgment.

The narratives that I have posted on this forum are text file extracts. The read-out on the actual Data Boxing 6.0 screen display is color-coded for the fighters and there is a graphic and scoreboard representation for scoring. You will also see the knockdown counts on the screen display. There is much more to Data Boxing that an individual will discover as they play the game.

Marciano's late round knockdown did not let Frazier's N2 SR W kick in. I find the DB boxer power interactions fascinating, as you can probably tell. Wink

Good observation. I reviewed the bout narrative from the DBDETAIL file and there was only one minute left in the round at the time of the knockdown. Frazier's N2 SR W rating also means that he was able to recover between rounds and not be as susceptible to a knockdown in the following round as some fighters, for example, who are rated N2 SR NR W. And then there are the boxers with a N2 W rating who are more susceptible to a knockdown for the rest of the bout after that first knockdown. The detail and realism in Data Boxing is terrific!

DATA BOXING 6.0

ROCKY MARCIANO VS. MAX BAER

Here is one of my favorite fights that I staged in the virtual world of Data Boxing in August of 2006 and watched with my dad, who is a Marciano fan. It was very entertaining as we watched the action screen describe Marciano and Baer in an all-out brawl. Marciano was cut and knocked down by the hard punching Baer but he just would not quit in an action-packed fight where Marciano eventually prevailed. Baer and Marciano were represented with their peak ratings. Others may want to try this one.

Let's look at some excerpts of the narration from this computer-simulated fight. Please note that the narratives I have posted on this forum are text file extracts. The commentary on the screen display is color-coded for the fighters and the player has the option of displaying photos of the boxers and a graph or a scoreboard representation for scoring. You will also see the knockdown counts on the action screen and more. Anything that has happened in boxing can happen in Data Boxing. For example, although I set this fight for 12 rounds, in Data Boxing 6.0 you have the option of scheduling up to 75 rounds. (Note: the color analyst option was not activated for this fight).

Let's go to the fight narrative for the 1st, 2nd and 5th rounds of the fight...

ENDNOTE: One Data Boxing result is not considered definitive. A series of bouts needs to be analyzed beore making a judgment. Don Mankowski, Data Boxing 6.0 programmer/analyst, discusses the analysis of Data Boxing results at the Delphi Table Top Sports thread...

P.S. One of the things I enjoy about Data Boxing is the sharing of results with other gamers. It would be great to see some favorite Data Boxing fights from other gamers posted here at TTS as well.

[The announcer:]

Ladies and gentlemen: your attention please.
The winner in round six by a knock-out,
John Mugabi!

The judges' cards (10-point must) were as follow:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Points Rounds
Judge 1 (senior) = 0
- Mugabi 9 8 7 10 10 x x x x x 44 2
+ Roldan 10 10 10 8 8 x x x x x 46 3
Judge 2 (associate) = 0
- Mugabi 9 8 8 10 10 x x x x x 45 2
+ Roldan 10 10 10 9 9 x x x x x 48 3
Referee = 0
- Mugabi 9 8 7 10 10 x x x x x 44 2
+ Roldan 10 10 10 8 8 x x x x x 46 3
The winner by a knock out ( 6R/ 2:33): John Mugabi.


P.S. I followed this bout up with a 100 bout test and set the series to terminate early if a significant result was achieved at the 1% level. I had the following results...

Mugabi-Roldan 14-3-0; 4-2 KOs, 8-0 TKOs; 2-1 1st round KO/TKO wins

ANALYSIS: Although Mugabi is the probable winner, I would like to note that in the series Mugabi got caught cold in the first round once and was also kayoed in the 2nd round - anything can happen. A puncher always has a "puncher's chance" and one look at Roldan's Data Boxing ratings tells me that he can hit. Virtually anything that can happen in boxing can happen in Data Boxing, including the "puncher's chance" and the "sudden knockout".

P.P.S. The above narrative is a text file extract. The read-out on the actual Data Boxing 6.0 screen display is color-coded for the fighters and there is a graphic and scoreboard representation for scoring and the knockdowns are counted down on the screen. The figures are also line up much better on the Data Boxing action screen than what you see on an on-line forum.

ROCKY MARCIANO VS. JOE FRAZIER

"DREAM FIGHT"

If Rocky Marciano and Joe Frazier had traveled through time for a match-up with both in their primes, who would win? I staged this dream fight in the dimension of boxing known as Data Boxing, a boxing simulation represented by years of research by university professor Dr. Julian Compton, and implemented in the computer version by NASA programmer, Don Mankowski.

Here are my results from the computer-simulated fight between “The Brockton Blockbuster” and “Smokin’ Joe.” Both boxers were represented with their peak ratings.

ENDNOTES: One Data Boxing result is not considered definitive for a close match-up like Marciano-Frazier. A series of bouts between Marciano and Frazier would need to be analyzed before making a judgment.

The narratives that I have posted on this forum are text file extracts. The read-out on the actual Data Boxing 6.0 screen display is color-coded for the fighters and there is a graphic and scoreboard representation for scoring. You will also see the knockdown counts on the screen display. There is much more to Data Boxing that an individual will discover as they play the game.



R.I.P. Smokin' Joe - one of the great heavyweight champions...
