    Look I know you felt GGG deserved to win and felt that he was robbed of that victory. I get that, but there are many ways to judge a match that close. Personally from my perspective I felt that Canelo landed the more significant shots. He landed the cleaner more eye catching work and landed more body shots as well. It felt to me like GGG was being so aggressive and throwing a lot of punches because he couldn't match Canelo punch for punch.

    I mean, you can call any fight "a robbery" if you don't agree with the result, right? Even if it's super close, at the end of the day we can disagree on who deserved to win that first fight but still have respect for how close it was and how debatable it is. You sound like somebody willing to have an honest round by round analysis about it, and I'm happy to go through some of those close rounds with you and pinpoint what caused each fighter to deserve to win those rounds.

    Yes he was randomly tested and he got the timing wrong. Hence why he got popped.

    If he was being tested 3 months prior to the rematch, then that indicates he was being tested sufficiently to ensure he was clean well before and up to fight night. And again, the claim was that he was juiced for the first fight. It's a baseless claim as we know he was enrolled in VADA and passed all tests for the first fight.

    Mate, GGG was robbed clearly. The second fight was 50/50.

    As far as we know, nobody ever beat the hell out of GGG...since he was an infant, let alone as a 37yo with peak punching power that will easily stop any 160 trying a primitive Bull rush

    Canelo would beat Andrade, Charlo and Jacobs.

    Golovkin: "I want to fight Canelo"

    Dumbos "OMG Golovkin is ducking Andrade, CHarlo and Jacobs!!!! :eek: "

    You can't make this up.

    Canelo deserved victory. He outboxed GGG in rounds 1-4, most of round 5, round 6 was razor close, GGG outworked him in 7-9 despite getting rocked in each of those rounds, Canelo then put his pedal to the metal in rounds 10-12 and out landed him in those rounds. GGG was lucky to get a draw, he didn't deserve to win that.

    This is probably one of the most skewed opinion/breakdown I have read about on this fight.
    So - just to be clear - are you saying that there were ONLY 3 rounds (7-9) that GGG unquestionably won? (I'm not even addressing the rather melodramatic "he got rocked" comment)
    What do you think the final score was?

    GGG fought like someone adapting to a new regime, game plan and fight style. Sometimes he looked hesitant as if he was having to think what he should do next rather than just do what the muscle memory was telling him. When he got Rolls hurt and he moved in to 'finishing mode'... where nothing has changed because of the impact of a new trainer, the punches flowed as you'd expect.

    He's clearly declined from peak GGG but not as much as the first three rounds suggested. It was a stay-busy fight too, not one where his motivation would have been turned up to the max. Let's see how he performs next, after another camp and with a fight under Banks to review with his new team....
