A majority decision (MD) occurs when two of the three judging officials decide in favor of one boxer, while the third official calls the bout a draw. A majority decision officially is recorded as a win in a boxer's fight record. (Compare split-decision) Many US newspapers erroneously reported majority decisions as split-decisions from the 1930's through the 1950's.
