    He was actually wobbled right before the ko. 3rd last punch of the fight and his leg wobbled slightly then last 2 shots finished him

    No dive there.

    But there was something not right about the fight.

    Kov just didn't look like he wanted to take his man out.

    Maybe he can't anymore, but there were a few times early in the fight when I think he could have gone harder for the KO and maybe got it.


    And the judges scores pointed to, at a minimum, bias.

    We'll have to wait and see how Canelo does against Bivol...Beterbiev level LHWs.


    No matter what, it is a significant achievement on Canelo's part to capture a LHW title.

    Can’t believe the poll is almost even. There are many things to not like about Canelo, but he won fair and square tonight.

    All those who voted YES are the same ones who said they would give Canelo credit if he won the fight fair and square.

    I just suggest a look at the facts. Kovalev 36 years old, he spent three fights this year. He had about two months after a hard fight with Yardé for preparing for a fight with Alvarez.
    My "verdict" is: Kovalev was in poor condition (it was obviously seen in the weighing procedure where Sergey Kovalev was slightly overweight) And if Kovaled tried throwing power punches , he would be knocked out in round 5-7.

    I thought the ref stepped in way too quickly (thanks Oscar). But I don't think it was a dive, retrospectively. It was a great counter punch, and it may have been like Walcott - Marciano 2 where Kov is like 'I got nothing left'.

    Still, I'd be happy to change my mind with a clip lol.

    No dive but boxing is ****ing ruined. Celebrating a drug cheat every time he wins. After this win he now also has to be Pound for pound number one, no questions asked. Drug cheating scum
