GGG/Alvarez

Post by Old Mother » Mon Sep 18, 2017 1:26 am

No one's talking about it?

I had GGG with a slight advantage, but it was so close I wouldn't argue too much with people putting Alvarez on top.

The judging was horrendous however and highlights the corruption in boxing.


Can't wait for the re-match.

From the few clips I saw, GGG got old. Too bad nobody would fight him in his prime.

Assuming he wants another big payday before he retires, this is the best possible outcome for GGG.

I was OK with the draw I guess. Canelo did land a lot of good shots, even if GGG walked through them, they still landed. Couple uppercuts, couple overhand rights. I think GGG controlled the whole fight, landed his jab consistently and landed some good power shots. All the while backing Canelo into the ropes.

I probably had it 115-113 GGG, I can see the one judge having it even and could maybe have seen 115-113 Canelo, MAYBE. and that's giving him 2 of the first 3 and all of the last 3.

What I cannot see is that fucking 118-110 Canelo scorecard. That lady should never judge a boxing event again. get the fuck outta here with that nonsense.

Teddy Atlas' rant was A+ fucking amazing.

I watched it with the sound low to avoid being influenced by the crowd and commentary.

I scored it 7 to 5 for GGG. I was fine with the draw though.

He put Canelo on the ropes a lot and didn't seem like he took advantage of the situation. I thought GGG could've been more aggressive with Canelo on the ropes. He's the champ for a reason though.
