Judging Statistics for the Three Judges Assigned to the IBF Title Eliminator
(click on charts for enlarged version)
The Pod Index is a statistical measurement of each judge’s level of round-by-round consistency (agreement) with the other two judges. The higher the Pod Index, the more often they are in agreement with other judges. A low Pod Index does not automatically conclude that a judge is “poor”, but rather that he or she tends to score rounds differently than other judges.
