    Correct, Macklin fought a prime ready and hungry GGG that night. That GGG walks through Canelo, or gives him a bad beating !

    No he doesn't. Macklin was scared which is why GG looked good when they fought.

    SD fought a great fight and both guys showed grit in a hard fought fight. I thought Chenko did enough to win but the flash KD was enough to give GGG a narrow victory. I’d like to see these guys lace them up and do it again. Father Time is undefeated and he’s very close to punching GGGs ticket. He looked noticeably slower last night and is no longer the elite fighter he once was.
    Entertaining fight and I’m not going to complain about the result. Hats off to both guys for putting on a good show for the fans. Fans of boxing, not the tribal politics that seem to pollute the sport.

    Well I haven't watched it yet but I did post this beforehand:

    I'll post my card later but even if he did lose it's not really a HUGE shock is it? He's what? 37? That style of fighter rarely ages well either.. so why the forum is going into meltdown I don't know.. GGG is old.. it's not exactly news :lol:

    Fair play to the Ukrainian if he did knick it, he's always there or thereabouts.. a fighter who plugs away & one day might take a strap..

    Fair but that Ref made himself a relevant part of the match which is a no no in my view

    This was a great fight...Nice give and take action IMO.
    Never seen GGG wince in pain and run away until last night

    Yeah, that hasn't been said enough amidst the bickering - last night's fight was awesome. I think I might have preferred it to last week's clash at welter, tbh. Spence vs. Porter was a fun brawl and everything but the skill level here was much higher and it at the very least nearly matched the 147lb boys for sheer excitement and drama.

    Yeah it was a hell of a scrap and the skill level (and the heart) displayed by both fighters was, as you say, very high.

    I think Big Red will definitely KO GGG if he gives him a third opportunity.
    You can’t just say GGG is done based on last night as Sergey D would have a great chance of beating the current line up in this division right now .Yes I know he has already faced some of them but he has improved his game to the next level and GGG is on the slide quickly but not totally done.

    It's difficult to agree considering that GGG has never logged a clear win against a top fighter, to this day, and he just completed his fourth attempt.

    SD looked looked fantastic and in the past he has come up short but he was a kunt hair away from dropping GGG which would of been historical and made him ESPN famous.

    Would love to see SD get a bigger push after last night. If GGG is crazy enough to go straight into a rematch my money is on SD by stoppage
