    GGG has an ATG jab, incredible footwork (stalking and ring cutting), flawless positioning, excellent punch selection/placement, and underrated defense (he slips and rolls w/ a lot of punches).

    Canelo was BADLY outboxed by Khan and Lara and long stretches by Trout. Canelo is a great counterpuncher and has good handspeed and defense, but his footwork is terrible/non-existent.

    So what's all this garbage I'm reading that Canelo is the better boxer (counterpunching, yes, but only because Golovkin isn't a counterpuncher... El Oh El) and will handily outbox Golovkin if he can take the power?

    Well it depends on which GGG shows up. Canelo may outbox the Brook version of GGG, but not the Lemmy version.

    Anyone who didn't see what GGG was going with Brook is blind.

    That was the epitome of a man giving 0 f's in a boxing ring and just trying to bash a guys head in with 0 regard of technique or skill. I was actually laughing the entire fight at how little GGG cared for Brook.

    Thing here is.. Styles make fights.. in this fight these two are perfect for each other and this will be an amazing fight.. None of the other and previous fights they've had will matter... Their styles will clash in a beautiful way.. If everything goes well this will be the best fight we've seen in years.. As far as the better boxer.. I feel like overal GGG has more things in his arsenal and the jab will be key.. I feel like Canelo is the better counter puncher and he is also a great body puncher but that depends on who he is fighting.. He cant wait for GGG on this fight like he does against others to counter because if he does he will get KTFO because of accumulation of damage if hes blocking or if G lands a big one flush then its over.. I cant wait for this fight

    3 belt holder and peoples champion GGG ducked a guy parading in his division at 155 lbs. Nice logic,

    Khan and Lara have the ability to outbox damn near anyone in the sport not named PBF so that isn't saying much. They lack other things that keep them from being truly elite though. Canelo IMO is a better boxer than GGG and has shown it against much better competition than GGG has. Anyone can look good beating up and outboxing guys like Wade and Geale Jr. Do it against someone like PBF or Lara or Canelo then we can talk.

    Jacobs is a better boxer than Lara and Khan. Gennady edged Jacobs w/ a heavy, educated jab and lit him up w/ power punching as well.

    Canelo CLEARLY lost to Lara (pure robbery, wasn't close) and Khan made him look silly (girl from Canelo's family crying in tears).

    So yeah, Golovkin is a better boxer than Canelo.

    ATG jab is a stretch. It's a solid one though.

    The difference is he's less mobile than those fighters. It's one thing to outbox Lemieux and another to outbox Canelo. Golovkin doesn't feint much or disguise his punches much, he needs to mix it up to set things up against Canelo who has a great ring IQ as GGG himself acknowledged.

    Based on What? Who has Jacobs ever beat? He's not a better boxer nor was he ever regarded as highly as Khan or Lara here. He was a nobody who GGG was supposed to brutally KO instead he went life and death with him and now GGG fans want to badly overrated him as if they thought he was good all along.
