    Whenever you see Johnathon Banks, Darren Barker or Don Charles in a fighter's corner, then place a bet on the man in the opposite corner.

    They DKSAB!

    I'm just waiting for Spencer Oliver to become a coach to complete the quartet. Easy winnings at the bookies.

    I’ve just watched it and scored it 115-113 GGG. It was certainly no robbery whatsoever. Golovkin was a worthy winner. He did however badly fade from the 8th where I only gave him 1 round. That could have been down to the great body work (and footwork) by Derevyanchenko earlier in the fight, father time or both. You have to give Golovkin credit for beating a world class opponent at that age with his mileage, he really is an ATG.

    The thing is he would have to knock the wee cheating maggot out to get the win so it's not going to happen.I remember saying right after the first robbery he should have refused to fight him again and moved on elsewhere.I'm still pissed off about it tbh!:)

    GGG is in serious decline now. I can't help but feel a bit sorry for him and how his career panned out. He was clearly ducked by alot of people and never really got the recognition he deserved. He has definatley felt the raw end of boxing more often than not. Got screwed against Canelo after been ducked by him until the decline began.

    GGG is a great example of why boxing ****s itself time and time again.

    Thought it was a close fight that could've went either way and GGG scored the knockdown so no complaints from me about the result. Hard to score I thought. I abandoned my scoring after a while.

    GGG is clearly not what he once was and I'd be happy to see him retire but that won't be happening, he's now the IBF champion with fights left on his contract with DAZN. He's had 3 twelve round wars in 2 years now, along with the training camps, his age and his style of fighting, he's got a lot of mileage on him. Canelo beats him conclusively if they fight for a third time, and I thought that before GGG's fight last night. But you wonder how much last night's fight took out if him? He could end up losing to somebody else, which as somebody who's always enjoyed watching GGG, I wouldn't like to see.

    It just shows how elite he was that we can all see a significant decline yet he still beats a very worthy world class opponent in SD. He’s still one of the very best in the middleweight division and his chin is just granite.

    This may sound a bit daft but I’d like him to step up to the 168 to finish off his career. The IBF hydration restrictions are just too much for a 37 year old imo. He could have a couple more fights at 168 and win another world title.

    Golovkin has been on a rapid decline since the Jacobs fight. I personally scored that fight for Jacobs and knew there and then Golovkin's prime was well over. I also knew Canelo would sign to fight Golovkin immediately after the Jacobs performance and that's what happened. To Golovkin's credit, he mustered one last great performance in the first Canelo fight and should've got the cards but even in that fight, he wasn't at his best.

    The man's career is tragic because his biggest foe waited until he was on the decline to fight him and even still he was robbed on the cards. He probably lost the second fight and will be battered in a third if it happens which I hope it won't. It's a classic case of how unfair boxing can be.

    Hopefully Golovkin has one last decent payday and retires. Canelo doesn't deserve to feast on his corpse so I hope that doesn't happen.

    An extremely close fight with R1 probably being decisive.

    The main thing is that Derevyachenko has both raised his profile and WILL come again after a very good performance. His body work was impressive, unusual to see GGG backed up like that.

    Onto the cut, despite what was said on TV via those ringside, it looked to myself that it was inflicted by a GGG left hand as opposed to a clash of heads.

    3 nasty eye cuts on the trot now (Fury, Dirrell, Derevyachenko).

    As a GGG fan, I would like to see him fight Saunders and then, if it is his wish, cash out with a final showdown v Ginger Bollox.

    A fantastic fighter but I give him 18 months tops to retirement.

    Would be a good shout m8,i watched a re-run of the brook fight after last night and you could see how much he's aged he can't take the punishment like he used to either.I would be happy to see him move up and have a crack to be a two-weight champ then retire but the canelo carrot might be too good to refuse.

    I'd like to see him announce his retirement now, but he won't. There's a major shellacking coming his way if he keeps fighting at the top level. The mileage on the clock is showing up more and more, and nobody beats father time.

    Comparing GGG last night to a time when he last fought a similar opponent, proksa, the decline is visible. Though SD was tougher and better than proksa, and GGG apparently was ill too.

    Golovkin is a class act, I don't think there was any robbery.

    115-112 GGG.

    No robbery just a very good fight between two quality opponents, one in which is on a serious decline.
