It kills me to see Golovkin be the beneficiary of a robbery

    GGG probably won at least 6 rounds I thought, not even in the neighborhood of a robbery

    I scored that fight to GGG
    If anyone looks at my post history you will see that I picked for Jacobs against GGG and felt Danny had done enough, but in this fight felt GGG had won.
    Every round was competitive no doubt. Boxing can be that way where you have a tough fight scored 120-108 which doesn't reflect the action.
    I thought SD won rounds 3,4,5 and I think 9 and 10 were the other rounds I scored for him.
    Tough fight and I have no issue with anyone seeing such a tough fight scored the other way, but to me, I thought the decision was fair.
    I had a feeling before the fight that SD may take it.


    Separate note. When I looked at pictures of the weigh in. I thought GGG looked unwell. It reminded me of someone I knew when they suffered with glandular fever.
    I actually do believe from what I thought before the fight that he may very well have not been well. Not that that should be mentioned when scoring what actually happened in the ring but it was something I thought

    If you have to ask this then you have no clue scoring boxing match or you didn't score period and just trolling.

    People love to shout robbery and have been looking to round on Golovkin for ages. Just look at how many people shouted robbery in the Jacobs fight just because Danny was competitive. Meanwhile a lot of the same people excuse Canelo's favourable judging and turn a blind eye to the farce that was Kovalev Ward.

    Wasn't a robbery but Money as his moniker about right

    yup. The hordes of Canelo fans are dying to see GGG get taken out. Its crazy. You would think they would claim he won to "bolster" Canelo's win, but the truth is that they know GGG Canelo 2 was very much in doubt.

    I fear for Golovkin against Saunders now though. I think he's ripe for taking by the slickster. It's a fight Hearn will look to make with confidence and a view to putting BJS in with Canelo to get robbed.

    The Saunders that master classed Lemiuex definitely had a shot to beat this version of GGG. However, BJS fought just once in 2018, and is now fighting a guy we've never heard of next month. Not a very active and focused fighter so I cant say that BJS beats him

    Styles make fights and I don't think a 37 year old Golovkin will be able to pin down Saunders. Only delusional Canelovers were trying to claim that Golovkin hadn't slipped when Golden Boy's judges decided to screw him on the cards twice.

    It was a very close competitive fight. Many of the rounds were essentially even in my book.

    I would not use the word robbery. Let's reserve that for the fights where the rounds are clear but the outcome goes the other way.

    This one was really close.

    If this fight wasn't a robbery than neither the Canelo vs ggg fights, and I love the fact that you are not pointing out on how the ref was protecting ggg

    Feel free to criticise the ref. I think the officiating was def in his favour. That's just not what the thread is about and I knew you Canelo joy boys would try and act as if this fight being very competitive and difficult to score in parts was comparable to the Canelo fights which it isn't.

    Golovkin is prob faded enough for the ginger test failer to beat him without crooked scorecards now. That make you feel any better?
