    He definitely looking older a bit loss of speed etc. But the power is still there at this point I think he should stay at 160 and finish there try to fight the likes of an Andrade , Canelo , Jacobs ,Charlo

    Loeffler has mentioned a campaign at 168 against Callum smith I think he should abandoned that idea and remain finishing off his career at 160

    No point in a Jacobs rematch. He flopped in the Canelo fight and truth be told didn't get that close to GGG in their fight either.

    I'd like to see him against the others, but a 4th or even 5th fight against Canelo seems more likely before we ever get those.

    Oscar agrees and wants GGG to age a little bit more before putting his boy in the with him again.

    That was a demolishing left hand. Clearly the power has not gone anywhere. However, his defense was as bad as I’ve ever seen. But that power is definitely going to keep things interesting for him no matter who he fights.

    Age dont have much to do with punching power so Im not surprised. But ive seen nothing that indicates he beats Canelo in a third fight.

    No, he doesn't have the 'POWER' unless that 'POWER' enables him to KO elite opponents like Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs. Nobody cares about this fraud's power at the non-elite level against journeymen / bums.

    Oscar/s plan all along was to wait until Golovkin got old. Will they fight when Golovkin is 50?!

    When you're a 37-year-old middleweight, you don't want to fight much younger /defensive fighters where the commission picks judges that will vote against you ( Canleo fights )

    If GGG wants to make a splash, let him move up to light heavyweight and get a match with Kovalev. That would be a great fight. Or fight Gvozdyk for the light heavy lineament title.

    If Canelo wants a 3rd match, set the fight in London, and use NONE of the judges linked to Oscar De La Hoya. Only then will it be fair.

    It has something to do with it. You lose your velocity as you age. The speed of the punch matters for power, how much depends on the strength of the fighter.

    GGG, despite slipping, beat Clenelo twice in the eyes of the majority of the people who follow the sport

    He’s not going anywhere and beats anyone who isn’t elite

    5 fights left to go

    He is past his peak and was taking way too much leather last night.

    Too easy to hit, and the speed loss means that it'll be harder for him to connect with his punches. But still has a puncher's chance againt anyone

    Gotta wonder how much was ring rust and maybe the ol bait and switch, make Clenelo think he’s vulnerable
