It’s galling because Golovkin has beaten him twice, in my estimation, yet has a defeat and a draw to show for it. A fucking shame

Not sure we will see it again

 

If not wouldn't mind seeing Jacobs get the shot though i think Canelo beats him

Golovikin's biggest fight is against the Las Vegas bent-arsed money making machine and all the ped's, dodgy decisions and Oscar De La Hoya mexican bank holiday bullshit's associated with it. Loaded deck, the only way the rightful winner of the last fight to win this one is via KO. Unlikely to happen. File under 'reasons to hate boxing'.

 

Some sage seen this coming.

Wonder if GGG goes the same way as Hagler and just tells them to fuck off

 

Canelo vs Saunders might be interesting

That was a fucking travesty!

Canelo had the early going but GGG had his measure from 8-12. 

I would have had it at least 7-5 to GGG. 

One for the ratings and PPV buys if they have a third fight but bullshit decision in my eyes.

Great fight. Lived up to the hype. Wouldn't have been mad with another draw but think Golovkin paid from being the less spectacular fighter early on. He was peppering him with jabs but only really started mixing it up after round 8 and Canelo's hand speed was phenomenal in the beginning.

For me Golovkin edged it just because after round 8 he put on a clinic and it's a shame because he should've won the first fight and now he's 0 for.

It was the same with Mayweather before

Not that he ever needed much help on the cards but the bending off rules and if you believe Thomas Hauser the ignoring a few failed tests he held call the cards in Vegas

Boxing and all its PED's and politics fucking stinks and has no integrity!

Canelo is 100% on the juice, isn’t he?

I'm not sure I agree this is an awful decision, there appeared to be a lot of close rounds and they seem very evenly matched. I thought it was very tough to score.

What's the worst decision you've seen? I reckon Reid vs Ottke, that was incredibly dodgy.

I thought the first half of the fight was tough to score.

If Canelo fights the exact fight GGG did, and vice versa, we all know who wins. Including, GGG. And for that reason he should have been more aggressive from the first bell. He knew if it went to the judges he would lose. He had to.

Jeff Fenech vs Azumah Nelson on the Mike Tyson undercard is the most obviously rigged decision that immediately springs to mind....Don King jumps into the ring announce 'Hey, that was such a great fight, lets do it all over again'. Fenech had just bounced him all over the floor. Much to King's financial benefit and guess who won the rematch. So bent out of shape it should be subject to a federal investigation.

This sport really, really disgusts me now, much like that round ball thing. Sadly I've been glued to it for over 50 years and it's so worn into my fabric that it's just too late too stop now.

You think it was a 'square' go?

 

I scored it 6-6.

 

I couldn't believe there was someone crazy enough to push GGG back - they almost threw my ass out of the casino.

I have to disagree Kevin. They seemed pretty confident in GGG's corner in between rounds too. Rigged result for me, not too hard to see it coming down the pass. It's all about keeping the money rolling in to Las Vegas. It's a shame that the integrity of the sport of boxing  has to be sacrificed, however, this is boxing and it is Las Vegas. Personally I think it stinks to high heaven.

Yeah, no worries.

 

I know that you're fair and you know I'm a GGG guy.

 

I thought Canelo really brought the fight to him, was too quick, and let his combinations go and won 6 of the first 8.

 

GGG stormed the back half of the fight and really took it to him.

 

Again, I scored it even. It was a fight for the ages.
