    There it is, the Canelo idolatry is finally over, never to return again. I think even the most warped Canelo fandivas can see that even a weight drained Usyk beats a little stiff version of Canelo by KO.

    Err I can see that look on the face of Mr Usyk from Ukraine - shades of Big Joan Fury bullying Frampton

    The biggest surprise of the night was Bivol getting the decision - game changed

    Wonder if the famous Matchroom rematch clause will come into play or quietly slip off into the night Terence Harper style?

    Canelo thinks he won the fight when he was well beaten on the night with judges doing their best to shaft Bivol.

    Money is on Canelo fighting a limited opponent such as Ryder in the UK next on Box Office.

    Last night puts paid to Canelo ever reigning supreme at 175.

    Bivol and Beterbiev will (have in the case of Bivol) see to that.

    Canelo is now stuck in the wasteland that is 168.

    We just saw Golovkin v Alvarez 1 all over again, pretty much. Great work from Bivol who didn't get anywhere near the respect he deserved from the boxing World pre fight, he absolutely bossed Alvarez and made him look lost at times.

    168 is his limit, he's not beating any top level prime 175ers, only washed up ones.

    He didn't get anywhere the respecht that he deserves indeed. Bivol was always going to beat Alvarez. He's simply the bigger, stronger and better fighter.

    Absolutely no shame in losing against Bivol but to think that Alvarez actually stood a chance? I find that absolutely baffling.

    1/5 odds on at the Bookmakers was PED Canelo last night - anyone listening to Earn this week would have piled in.

    Anyone who thought Canelo would have a chance against Usyk is off their nut

    Canelo is still an elite level fighter mind,and the man at middle, but being competitive against usyk?

    Na...

    There is a good reason for weight categories in boxing and last night showed it. Bivol had the physicality plus the boxing skills to beat Canelo.

    Canelo has no chance against Usyk.

    After last night's surprising defeat, his market value has also fallen.

    It is a ridiculous statement in the first place but now just plain laughable
