Great fight! I do think GGG won, but it was pretty close. The story was similar to the last fight though. GGG started slow, but started edging him in the later rounds.

I went about how the first few rounds of the first fight went, except this time over most of the 12 rounds, in the sense that Canelo was standing his ground and not backing up.

Only someone delusional would call the outcome of that fight a "robbery" regardless of who got the win.

It was clearly a close fight and GGG didn't really start to take clear control until around 9.

10 was the most dominant round for either fighter and was Golovkin's

12 was close and could have gone either way

I scored it for Canelo, but I agree with this article from bloody elbow

Of course with any close fight like this the big talk afterwards is going to be the scoring. And look, I get it. Canelo has gotten very (VERY) favorable scorecards over the years. And I scored this 115-113 GGG myself. But to call this a robbery seems silly. Pacquiao vs. Bradley I is a robbery. This? This was a super close fight with probably 75% of the rounds being tough to call toss-ups. If some gave two more of those toss-ups to Canelo than I did? Well, that’s OK - it’s what happens in a close fight.

Instead of focus on the anger over the scores, let’s focus on the fight, because it really was a tremendous fight. Canelo came out aggressive and used very good body work throughout. GGG used the jab, and came on strong in the end. Both men had their strategies, and both gave it their all. It just favored Canelo in the eyes of the judges.

Will we see Canelo vs. GGG 3? It’s lilely, and Canelo himself said so post-fight. Golovkin did not, as he left the ring before being interviewed. The only potential impediment is that Golovkin is now 36 and winding down. Clearly there is no bigger money fight for him than a 3rd clash with Canelo, but he also has some decisions to make about what comes next.

Damn it was a great fight. I thought GGG won again 116-112 but Canelo fought fucking spectacular this time around and it was close enough that you cant really call it a robbery like last time. What a fight!!! them chins on these guys

What a great fight. Canelo turned it around this time and pressed forward most of the fight. GGG looked older and a little slower than last time. I had it scored 7-5 for Canelo but some of those rounds were really close. I get the feeling if they fight for a 3rd time Canelo will do even better. Fun fight tho. :hand1:
I'm so fucking high.

Boxing with gloves sucks. Third fight should be a bare knuckle fight with no time limit.
