    I mean official wins - I think he clearly beat Canelo in the first fight but lost to Derevyanchenko.

    I'd rank GGG's best official wins in this order:

    1. Daniel Jacobs
    2. Sergiy Derevyanchenko
    3. Kell Brook
    4. David Lemieux
    5. Martin Murray

    I think Jacobs and Derevyanchenko were A-level wins (even though both fights were extremely close), Brook was an excellent fighter but two divisions lower, so there is some notable gap between Jacobs/Derevyanchenko and Brook. Lemieuх and Murray are deсent but limited, so I put them clearly below much more talented and skilled Kell Brook, but above Daniel Geale who was really one of the worst middleweight title holders in boxing history.

    if you don't count the 2 Canelo robberies

    1. Jacobs
    2. Derevyanchenko
    3. Geale
    4. Brook
    5. Ouma

    Geale was a unified beltholder and clearly a better fighter as Lemieux

    Lemieux at least had power, and Geal was feather-fisted. Shot Cotto easily knocked him out and so did journeyman Renold Quinlan

    1&2. Sergey Derevyanchenko
    2&1. Danny Jacobs
    3. Daniel Geale
    4. David Lemieux
    5. Kell Brook

    I had SD drawing Jacobs iirc, and thought he did better vs GGG. With that said, I think those two are splitting hairs. As much as I love Brook, I don't think he was truly all that at MW. Those two would've beaten him imo, Daniel was also definitely better imo.

    In reality GGGs best win should be Canelo. And it's not as bad a résumé as people would have you believe, it's just not on par with Nelo's, Usyk's, Loma'a ect.

    When you look at it you can really see how thin GGGs resume actually is.....

    his best wins Jacobs and dev were incredibly tight. The knockdowns cost both.

    I had dev beating GGG when I scored it also, but it’s an official win for ggg

    You are confusing your preference with the facts...GGG won ....no doubt you had no such problem giving Canelo the win in the 2nd fight ?

    yeah I stated that. GGG won against dev. GGG won the first against canelo and I thought he lost the 2nd yeah.

    don’t think it’s all too controversial

    I think ggg beat jacobs.

    Derevyanchenko fight could of gone either way

    Ggg won the first. Canelo won the second


    You saying he confusing his preferences over facts is idiotic.

    B level wins. I consider an A level win Canelo beating GGG or vice versa.
