The MatchUp App.
Click or tap on the to view the Menu and switch between the "Boxers", "MatchUp" and "ScoreCard" apps.
The Matchup app is just for fun. Use it to see how good you are at rating boxers and to help you get better at that.
Type a blank space, or the first few letters in a boxer's name, in the "Boxer 1" and "Boxer 2" inputs and select your boxers from the list that appears. Then click the "Match Up" button to see how they matchup.
The Matchup app analyzes the statistics and your ratings for the two boxers you've selected and assigns a score for each boxer and tells you who has the highest score.
In theory, the boxer with the highest score has a better chance of winning a bout. But we're talking about boxing and "upsets" happen so don't bet the farm on who the apps says has the advantage. (See "MatchUp Analytics" below for more info on how this works.)
The MatchUp Analytics.
The "Matchup" app analyzes the data you've entered for the two boxers you select in the MatchUp app.
These are the category ratings the MatchUps app uses to analyze a boxer:
Averaged Quality of Opponents
You can give a boxer a rating between 1 - 10 for each of those categories for a total of 70 points.
These are the boxer's statistics the MatchUps app currently uses to analyze a boxer:
Number of Pro Bouts
Your ratings have a lot more influence on how a boxer scores in the MatchUp app than their statistics.
Right now the analytics only gives or takes a few points off a boxers overall rating and the bar for giving or taking a point is pretty high.
I've really just started on working on the analytics and have some ideas on how to dig a bit deeper into how a boxer's statistics can be expected to affect the outcome of a real life matchup.
