    Maybe you should pay more attention to what happens in the ring Lance, then you wouldn't need me to spoon feed you the finer points of the sweet science.

    It's shocking to me that I'm the only one who seems to pick up on such details while watching a fight. I can bring a horse to water, but I can't make him drink.

    Canelo fought at super middleweight in his fight before GGG, he beat Wards best opponent in Kovalev at 175, Canelo is not a small guy, he’s just been a weight bully for a long time when it suited (I.e when GGG was still “prime”).

    That's a fair criticism of him, and he certainly could have dared to be great more and taken bigger risks to elevate himself to cement himself as an ATG. I still feel like he is an ATG, just given how big of a name he is and the fact that he stayed undefeated for so long. I just personally think he solidified himself as an ATG by the two fights with Canelo. Those were close fights, it's not like he laid down. And if I'm not mistaken he's never been knocked down in his career. The level of dominance he showed throughout his career up until he fought Jacobs at least, regardless of level of competition is still good enough to reach ATG status when you add the Jacobs win and how tough and competitive he was in the two wars with Canelo. But he certainly could have chased the Ward fight which could have taken him to another level. Then again, maybe that would have been a mistake, maybe he would have lost to Ward or Froch if he dared to be great and then would never have gotten the Canelo matches so you never know how that risk would have played out.

    Look who's leading the "NO" votes The illustrious PimpC the leader of the Ginger Is God brigade. Voting is very close though but he'll still say Ginger easily beat GGG. Something Ginger had two tries at & failed twice

    I wish I could find that video where Oscar was bragging that he wanted the winner of Cotto-Margarito 1 so he could go out in a blaze of glory with a big win ROFL !! But when he saw Tony make Cotto back into the corner kneel in submission & QUIT!!!!!! he rapidly changed his mind. But he didnt escape Karma & Manny Pacquaio forced a beaten & humiliated Oscar to quit on his stool. What an embarrassing end to his career

    Oh so he needs to test positive at every weight class for you to believe he was on juice?? Start juicing and you will be able to tell fellow juicers by barely looking at them.
