    Why get excited over this. When you boil it down the result is obvious
    If Canelo is still standing at the final bell he'll get the decision regardless of how the fight goes. EVERYONE knows this
    GGG boxed his ears off TWICE only to get screwed twice. Gennadiy has to knock the ginger fraud out to win I hope he can do just that KARMA works I hope it does its job this time

    Not true. If Bivol beat him clean then Gennady has to too. Problem is Golovkin likes to brawl and get into exchanges. He has no real defense outside of his offense and he gets hit a lot. Canelo likes to stand still, fight, and bob and weave. They are made for each other.

    It was pretty obvious the fix was supposed to be in that's why the judges cards made the fight appear close, which it wasn't, Bivol schooled Canelo. All 3 judges gave Canelo the first four rounds as usual but then they screwed up no one told them which 2 of them was to make Canelo the winner Personally I had the fight
    117-111 to Bivol.

    There is not much difference in Canelo and GGG now than it was in their last fight. Physically as well as mentally. They are each other's hardest fight. Neither had been in any real wars and thier resumes are roughly the same. This fight is gonna come down to who wants it more. This is a make or break fight for both fighters. GGG moreso than Canelo, but not much because losing two in a row for Canelo would be devastating.

    Even though Canelo already lost to Floyd Mayweather, struggled against Erislandy Lara, and couldn't beat Golovkin in their first fight, he still somehow seemed unbeatable to some people. Seeing him get handled by Bivol probably destroyed that illusion for good.
    Until very recently, Golovkin's avoided moving up to face challenges, instead opting to fight smaller guys. Even so, by my eye he lost the Derevyanchenko fight at 160 anyway, and there's probably a handful of other middleweights that could make him look just as mediocre.

    And besides all that, we've already seen this fight. Twice. Maybe the reason nobody seems to care about it is because Canelo vs. GGG III just isn't that big of a fight. I'd rather see the Bivol rematch or Canelo vs. Benevidez than another Alvarez vs. Golovkin.
