Split draw

A split draw is a decision by the judges when a bout has reached its scheduled end; this form of decision involves one judge scoring the bout in favor of one fighter, another judge scoring the bout for the opposing fighter, and the final judge scoring the bout even. Each fighter will receive a "draw" towards his or her record.

A notable example where this occurred was the June 17, 2006 WBC/WBA/WBO Middleweight title bout between Ronald Wright and Jermain Taylor, in which first judge Chuck Giampa favored Taylor 115-113, second judge Ray Hawkins favored Wright 115-113, while the third judge Melvina Lathan had the bout even at 114-114.
