    Why would GGG make concessions to fight Ward?

    Both where admittedly the respective number 1 in their divisions yet GGG was the fan friendly fighter and bigger draw.

    Why would he?

    As for Kovalev don’t try to equate the Kovalev that Canelo beat to the version that was active 4 years ago and try to get a hollow victory for Canelo.

    Actually roles reversed was GGG to Ward what Canelo was to GGG?

    Because it is officially within the Middleweight limit. If there was any problem with the weight, it wouldn't be sanctioned and the Middleweight titles won't be on the line. The weight limit clearly suggests that you have to weigh from 154.1 all the way to 160 to be considered a Middleweight officially. Is this still too complicated for your limited peanut for a head?. There is no such thing as "YOU MUST WEIGH AT THE FULL LIMIT". Do you even know how weights work in this sport?.

    If you still don't get it, try to watch a few highlights of Golovkin devouring bums. Maybe that will clear your mind for at least 30 seconds to be able to comprehend this.

    Bit it’s not within the true middleweight limit is it.

    154.1 to 160, NOT 154.1 to 155 or 154.1 to 157 not 154.1 to 159.

    Come on kid, keep it coming, you thick ****

    Pretty sure even inconsistent douchebags like you were against catchweight title fights at one point.

    There is no rule out there that suggests the fight isn't a Middleweight fight if you don't hit the full limit. That rule only exists among idiots like you.

    Yeah, because fighting at a Catchweight that is agreed upon by both camps is criminal quality. Yet loading up gloves, calling out smaller opponents and struggling/losing against them is heroic material, right?. Pathetic old fart.

    Because Ward is a great fighter, presented a risk and would of enhanced GGG's legacy as would Kovalev, but other than that idk. You fanboys are weird, who cares if GGG was a marginally bigger draw than Ward, they both sold around the same amount in their ppv debut despite GGG-Lemeiux being hyped heavily while GGG's 2nd ppv with Jacobs only sold 170k. He was NOT a draw before Canelo.

    But in these so called "middleweight title bouts" had either fighter actually come in at 160 pounds, the middleweight limit & beaten his opponent would he have won the title ???? If not they were NON legitimate title fights
