PodIndex FAQ

What is the Pod Index?
The Pod Index is a sports statistics company focused on the measurement and improvement of professional boxing and MMA judging.
How does the Pod Index calculation work?
The Pod Index is a measurement of consistency. It tallies the difference in round-by-round scores between each of the three judges. The higher the percentage, the more a judge agrees with the other two judges.
If one judge gets it "right" but the other two judges get it "wrong," won't that affect the one judge's Pod Index?
There is no "right" or "wrong" per se. But with a large enough sample size, the impact of having worked with a judge that got it "wrong" is minimized.
Where do you get your information from? Is it reliable?
The Pod Index database is 100% accurate and reliable because its information comes directly from commissions and sanctioning bodies.
Who/What determines which fights are Difficult or Easy to judge?
This is determined by a mathematical formula. The closer the total scores are, the more difficult the fight is considered to be. For example, a fight which saw finals scores of 120-108, 119-109, and 119-109 would be considered easy to judge. On the other hand, a fight that ended up 115-113, 115-113, and 114-114 would be considered difficult to judge.

The cut-off point is average scores of 118-110. If the three score average is 118-110 or wider, the fight is categorized as easy to judge. If the three score average is closer than 118-110, it is categorized as difficult to judge. That same ratio applies to fights scheduled for less than 12 rounds.
